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

Your Richmond chiropractor is continually on alert for relatable ways to address Richmond back pain patients’ questions. Richmond back pain patients like easy answers. Your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Richmond back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Richmond low back pain (LBP) presents a major socioeconomic problem although the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. 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, greater stride-to-stride variability and a higher activity 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 affiliated 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. 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 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. Richmond back pain patients are share the same issues! These discoveries may well back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Johnson Chiropractic helps Richmond chiropractic patients with Richmond back pain relief and with their desire to address complicating metabolic issues.


Johnson Chiropractic encourages Richmond 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, used 60 minutes weekly, showed improved pain and disability and increased spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can enhance physical health and reduce the incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Johnson Chiropractic highlights that exercise is effective!


Richmond back pain in older folks effectively lowers balance ability. Johnson Chiropractic doesn’t see this as a good event! These patients showed reduced dependence 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) Johnson Chiropractic definitely checks Richmond 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 related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Johnson Chiropractic finds this curious, but it’s published!
