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

Your Toronto chiropractor is always on alert for relatable stories to address Toronto back pain patients’ questions. Toronto back pain patients like simple answers. Your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre does, too. Read more about these factors that influence your relief of Toronto back pain, arm and leg pain.


Chronic non-specific Toronto low back pain (LBP) presents a huge socioeconomic problem even though the mechanisms are not yet fully understood. Impaired motor control is one issue which was indicated by a reduced movement amplitude of the pelvis, additional in-phase coordination, lower ground reaction forces, higher stride-to-stride variability and a higher action 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 collection of cardiovascular risk factors (insulin resistance, hypertension, glucose intolerance, low HDL-C, and hypertriglyceridemia. (7) DMS and MetS are associated in six ways: elevated 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 revealed a strong relationship between DMS and the presence 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. Toronto back pain patients are share the same issues! These discoveries might support the atherosclerosis-low back pain connection hypothesis. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre helps Toronto chiropractic patients with Toronto back pain relief and with their desire to fix confounding metabolic issues.


Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre encourages Toronto 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 aged 21 average with musculoskeletal pain. A nine-week stabilization exercise therapy program, performed 60 minutes once a week, showed improved 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 prevalence of cervical disability and low back pain in young adults with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre highlights that exercise is effective!


Toronto back pain in elderly effectively reduces balance ability. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre doesn’t see this as a good thing! These patients exhibited decreased reliance on ankle and hip strategy for balance control resulting in 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre definitely checks Toronto 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 related to the presence of low back pain. (6) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre finds this interesting, but it’s documented!
