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

Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is continually looking for relatable stories to address Baton Rouge back pain patients’ questions. Baton Rouge back pain patients like simple answers. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was shown by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability and a higher action in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is indicated by 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 collection of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are associated in six ways: increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Notably, insulin resistance was related to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research revealed 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. Baton Rouge back pain patients are like them! These discoveries may well back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation helps Baton Rouge chiropractic patients with Baton Rouge back pain relief and with their wish to address confounding metabolic issues.


Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation encourages Baton Rouge 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, used 60 minutes once a week, showed improved pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and decrease the incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation highlights that exercise is helpful!


Baton Rouge back pain in older folks successfully reduces balance ability. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation doesn’t view this as a beneficial thing! These patients exhibited 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 increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation definitely tests Baton Rouge back pain patients for issues with balance.


One more stimulating finding 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation finds this interesting, but it’s published!
