What Factors Play A Role in Montreal Back Pain, Arm Pain And Leg Pain?

Your Montreal chiropractor is continually on alert for interesting stories to address Montreal back pain patients’ questions. Montreal back pain patients like easy answers. Your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Montreal back pain, arm and leg pain.

CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE

Chronic non-specific Montreal low back pain (LBP) is a major socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was shown by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability and an elevated activity in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by greater activity of the spine muscles which results in a stiffened lumbar-pelvic region. (1) Dysmobility Syndrome (DMS) (abnormal spine motion) of the musculoskeletal system and adverse health problems in older population is observed. Abnormal spine mobility is linked to metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves a collection of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are related in six ways: elevated body fat, reduced muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was correlated to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study showed a strong relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its mechanisms in the elderly population. (2) Further, low high density lipid (HDL) cholesterol and high low density cholesterol/high density lipid cholesterol ratio were significantly associated with low back pain in a middle-aged Japanese population. Montreal back pain patients are similar to them! These findings might back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic helps Montreal chiropractic patients with Montreal back pain relief and with their desire to fix complicating metabolic issues.

EXERCISE

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages Montreal chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. A study assessed the outcomes of an exercise therapy program on pain and physical dimension of health-related quality of life for 57 young adults of an average age of 21 with musculoskeletal pain. A nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes once a week, showed enhanced pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This report revealed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical health and decrease the incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic highlights that exercise is effective!

BALANCE CONTROL

Montreal back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic does not view this as a good event! These patients showed reduced dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to a deficit of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, older patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic definitely tests Montreal back pain patients for problems with balance.

HAND GRIP STRENGTH

Another thought-provoking finding is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic finds this curious, but it is documented!
