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

Your Sitka chiropractor is always on alert for relatable ways to address Sitka back pain patients’ questions. Sitka back pain patients like easy answers. Your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Sitka back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Sitka low back pain (LBP) poses a major 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 a higher activity 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 related in six domains: increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was linked to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study showed a strong relationship between DMS and the presence of MetS and its components 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. Sitka back pain patients are share the same issues! These findings may well support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps Sitka chiropractic patients with Sitka back pain relief and with their wish to address confounding metabolic issues.


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka urges Sitka chiropractic patients to exercise even doing something as simple as walk. 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 aged 21 average 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 study confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical health and decrease the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka emphasizes that exercise is effective!


Sitka back pain in older folks effectively reduces balance ability. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka doesn’t view this as a good event! These patients showed decreased dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to a deficit of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, older patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka definitely tests Sitka back pain patients for issues with balance.


One more stimulating issue is low hand grip strength in women who are over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the presence of low back pain. (6) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka see this as this interesting, but it’s documented!
