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

Your Groton chiropractor is continually on alert for relatable stories to answer Groton back pain patients’ questions. Groton back pain patients like simple answers. Your Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office does, too. Read more about these factors that guide your relief of Groton back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Groton low back pain (LBP) poses a major socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one of the mechanisms which was shown by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability and an elevated action in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in 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 seen. Abnormal spine mobility is associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) (2), and MetS involves 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, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was linked to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study showed a strong relationship between DMS and the presence of MetS and its mechanisms 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. Groton back pain patients are like them! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office helps Groton chiropractic patients with Groton back pain relief and with their desire to address complicating metabolic issues.


Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages Groton chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers evaluated the outcomes 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 once a week, showed enhanced pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and reduce the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office emphasizes that exercise is effective!


Groton back pain in elderly successfully lowers balance ability. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 higher risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office definitely tests Groton back pain patients for problems 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 presence of low back pain. (6) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office finds this interesting, but it is published!
