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

December 25, 2018

Your Nashua chiropractor is always looking for interesting ways to answer Nashua back pain patients’ questions. Nashua back pain patients like easy answers. Your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Nashua back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Nashua low back pain (LBP) poses a major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was indicated by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, greater 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 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 linked in six domains: increased 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 research 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. Nashua back pain patients are similar to them! These findings may well back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Moriarty Chiropractic helps Nashua chiropractic patients with Nashua back pain relief and with their desire to address confounding metabolic issues.


Moriarty Chiropractic urges Nashua chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers 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 9-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes weekly, revealed improved pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed 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) Moriarty Chiropractic highlights that exercise is effective!


Nashua back pain in older folks effectively reduces balance ability. Moriarty Chiropractic doesn’t see this as a beneficial event! These patients showed decreased reliance 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) Moriarty Chiropractic certainly evaluates Nashua back pain patients for issues with balance.


One more thought-provoking issue is low hand grip strength in women who are over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the existence of low back pain. (6) Moriarty Chiropractic finds this curious, but it is published!
