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

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


Chronic non-specific Colorado Springs low back pain (LBP) poses a huge socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is one of the mechanisms which was indicated by a lower movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher 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 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 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 problems. Notably, insulin resistance was linked to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study revealed a strong relationship between DMS and the existence 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. Colorado Springs back pain patients are share the same issues! These findings might back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR helps Colorado Springs chiropractic patients with Colorado Springs back pain relief and with their desire to fix complicating metabolic issues.


The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages Colorado Springs chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers evaluated 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 nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, used 60 minutes weekly, showed enhanced pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This report revealed 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 adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR emphasizes that exercise is helpful!


Colorado Springs back pain in elderly successfully lowers balance ability. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR does not view this as a beneficial thing! These patients presented decreased reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control causing a discrepancy of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Also, older patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR certainly tests Colorado Springs back pain patients for issues with balance.


Another 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR finds this interesting, but it’s published!
