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

Your Eugene chiropractor is continually looking for relatable ways to answer Eugene back pain patients’ questions. Eugene back pain patients like simple answers. Your Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Eugene back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Eugene low back pain (LBP) poses a major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was shown by a reduced 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 greater activity of the spine muscles which leads to a stiffened lumbar-pelvic region. (1) Dysmobility Syndrome (DMS) (abnormal spine motion) of the musculoskeletal system and adverse health problems in older population is observed. Abnormal spine mobility is linked to 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 related in six ways: increased body fat, declined muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was related to increased body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This study showed a compelling 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. Eugene back pain patients are like them! These findings may well support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic helps Eugene chiropractic patients with Eugene back pain relief and with their desire to address complicating metabolic issues.


Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic urges Eugene chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers 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, used 60 minutes once a week, showed enhanced pain and disability and intensified spine muscle endurance. This study revealed 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic highlights that exercise is effective!


Eugene back pain in older folks successfully reduces balance ability. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic does not see this as a good thing! These patients exhibited decreased dependence on ankle and hip strategy for balance control causing a deficit of postural control from proprioceptive impairment. Moreover, elderly patients with low back pain are at increased risk for lower leg proprioceptive decrease and balance ability. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic definitely evaluates Eugene back pain patients for problems 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 presence of low back pain. (6) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic finds this interesting, but it’s documented!
