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

Your La Grande chiropractor is continually looking for relatable stories to address La Grande back pain patients’ questions. La Grande back pain patients like easy answers. Your La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of La Grande back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific La Grande low back pain (LBP) presents a major socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. 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 an elevated 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 observed. Abnormal spine mobility is affiliated 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 ways: increased body fat, reduced muscle mass, reduced muscle strength, osteoporosis, slow gait speed, and balance problems. Notably, insulin resistance was linked to higher body fat, osteoporosis and balance. This research demonstrated a compelling relationship between DMS and the presence 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. La Grande back pain patients are like them! These findings might back the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC helps La Grande chiropractic patients with La Grande back pain relief and with their desire to address confounding metabolic issues.


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages La Grande chiropractic patients to exercise even simple walking. Researchers assessed the outcomes 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 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 incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in young people with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC highlights that exercise is effective!


La Grande back pain in elderly effectively lowers balance ability. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC does not view this as a beneficial thing! These patients presented decreased reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control giving rise to a deficit 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) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC definitely checks La Grande back pain patients for problems with balance.


One more stimulating issue is low hand grip strength in women aged over 50 years with low physical activity was significantly related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC see this as this curious, but it’s published!
