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

December 25, 2018

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is always on alert for relatable ways to address Baton Rouge back pain patients’ questions. Baton Rouge back pain patients like easy answers. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Baton Rouge back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Baton Rouge low back pain (LBP) is a huge socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is one of the mechanisms which was indicated by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability and a higher activity 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 seen. Abnormal spine mobility is linked to metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS encompasses a collection of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are associated in six ways: elevated body fat, declined muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Notably, insulin resistance was linked to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research showed a strong relationship between DMS and the presence of MetS and its factors in the elderly population. (2) Additionally, 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. Baton Rouge back pain patients are like them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with Baton Rouge back pain relief and with their desire to fix confounding metabolic issues.


Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers urges Baton Rouge 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, used 60 minutes weekly, revealed enhanced pain and disability and intensified 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 adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers emphasizes that exercise is effective!


Baton Rouge back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability. Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers does not view this as a good thing! These patients exhibited decreased dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to a discrepancy of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, elderly patients with low back pain are at higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers certainly evaluates Baton Rouge back pain patients for issues with balance.


Another stimulating finding is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the existence of low back pain. (6) Medical Spine and Sports Injury and Rehab Centers finds this interesting, but it is documented!
