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

Your Pflugerville chiropractor is always on alert for relatable stories to address Pflugerville back pain patients’ questions. Pflugerville back pain patients like simple answers. Your Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Pflugerville back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Pflugerville low back pain (LBP) presents a huge socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. 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 a higher action in spine muscles. Impaired motor control during walking is reflected in higher 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 encompasses 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, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance issues. Particularly, insulin resistance was related to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study demonstrated a strong relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its components 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. Pflugerville back pain patients are like them! These findings might back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center helps Pflugerville chiropractic patients with Pflugerville back pain relief and with their wish to address confounding metabolic issues.


Pflugerville Wellness Center encourages Pflugerville chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. A study assessed the effects 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 enhanced pain and disability and increased 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center highlights that exercise is effective!


Pflugerville back pain in older folks successfully reduces balance ability. Pflugerville Wellness Center does not view this as a beneficial thing! These patients exhibited decreased dependence 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 increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Pflugerville Wellness Center certainly tests Pflugerville back pain patients for issues with balance.


Another stimulating issue is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly associated with the existence of low back pain. (6) Pflugerville Wellness Center finds this interesting, but it’s documented!
