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

Your Ottawa chiropractor is always on alert for relatable ways to address Ottawa back pain patients’ questions. Ottawa back pain patients like simple answers. Your Ottawa chiropractor at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider does, too. Check out these factors that guide your relief of Ottawa back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Ottawa low back pain (LBP) presents a major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet clear. Impaired motor control is one issue which was indicated by a reduced movement amplitude of the pelvis, more in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, greater stride-to-stride variability and an elevated activity 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 associated 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 ways: increased body fat, declined muscle mass, lessened muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was related to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research showed a strong relationship between DMS and the existence of MetS and its mechanisms 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. Ottawa back pain patients are like them! These discoveries may well support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps Ottawa chiropractic patients with Ottawa back pain relief and with their wish to address complicating metabolic issues.


The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider urges Ottawa 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 intensified spine muscle endurance. This report confirmed that a 9-week progressive exercise therapy program can improve physical health and decrease the prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider emphasizes that exercise is effective!


Ottawa back pain in elderly successfully reduces balance ability. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider doesn’t view this as a beneficial event! These patients presented reduced reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider definitely checks Ottawa back pain patients for problems with balance.


Another thought-provoking finding 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider finds this interesting, but it is published!
