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.
Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages Montreal
chiropractic patients to exercise even simple
walking. A study assessed the effects
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, revealed
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!
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. Also, 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
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
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!
