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

December 25, 2018

Your Georgetown chiropractor is always looking for relatable stories to address Georgetown back pain patients’ questions. Georgetown back pain patients like simple answers. Your Georgetown chiropractor at Dr. Butwell does, too. Check out these factors that influence your relief of Georgetown back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Georgetown low back pain (LBP) is a huge socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is one of the mechanisms which was indicated by a reduced movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability and an elevated action in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in higher activity of the spine muscles which leads to 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 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 associated in six domains: elevated body fat, declined muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was correlated to increased 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. Georgetown back pain patients are share the same issues! These discoveries may well back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Dr. Butwell helps Georgetown chiropractic patients with Georgetown back pain relief and with their desire to fix confounding metabolic issues.


Dr. Butwell encourages Georgetown chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. A study evaluated 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 improved pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This study confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and decrease the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Dr. Butwell highlights that exercise is effective!


Georgetown back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability. Dr. Butwell does not view this as a good event! These patients exhibited reduced 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) Dr. Butwell certainly checks Georgetown back pain patients for problems with balance.


One more stimulating issue 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. Butwell see this as this interesting, but it’s documented!
