Your Malverne chiropractor is continually
on alert for relatable ways to address
Malverne back pain patients’ questions. Malverne back pain
patients like simple answers. Your Malverne chiropractor at
Malverne Health & Wellness does, too. Read more about these factors that guide
your relief of Malverne back pain, arm and leg pain.
CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN, MOVEMENT AND METABOLIC DISEASE
Chronic non-specific Malverne low back pain (LBP) poses
a huge socioeconomic problem even though the
mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is
one of the mechanisms which was shown by a reduced
movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination,
lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability
and a higher motion in spine muscles.
Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in higher
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 seen.
Abnormal spine mobility is associated with metabolic
syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS encompasses a grouping
of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose
intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are related
in six domains: increased body fat, declined
muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait
speed, and balance problems. Particularly, insulin
resistance was related to higher body
fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study revealed
a compelling relationship between DMS and the existence
of MetS and its components 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. Malverne back pain patients are share the same
issues! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection
hypothesis. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness helps Malverne chiropractic patients
with Malverne back pain relief and with their wish to address
complicating metabolic issues.
Malverne Health & Wellness encourages Malverne
chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. A study evaluated the effects
of an exercise therapy program on pain and physical dimension of health-related
quality of life for 57 young adults aged 21 average
with musculoskeletal pain. A nine-week stabilization exercise therapy
program, performed 60 minutes weekly, showed
improved pain and disability and increased
spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a
9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical
health and reduce the prevalence of cervical
disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal
pain. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness emphasizes that exercise is effective!
Malverne back pain in elderly effectively reduces balance ability.
Malverne Health & Wellness doesn’t see this as a beneficial
event! These patients showed decreased
reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance
control causing a discrepancy
of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, elderly
patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg
proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Malverne Health & Wellness definitely
checks Malverne back pain patients for problems
HAND GRIP STRENGTH
One more stimulating
issue is low hand grip strength in women who are
over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Malverne Health & Wellness
see this as this interesting, but it is documented!
