FACTORS INFLUENCING BACK PAIN AND QUALITY OF LIFE

Musculoskeletal diseases like osteoporosis, knee arthritis, disc degeneration and related back pain decrease quality of life. These conditions often happen in mid-life and older life, rendering life not very pleasant. Researchers found factors that seem to decrease the odds of acquiring these problems. What are they? Lower body mass index (BMI). Fine spinal alignment. Greater back muscle strength. No trouble with locomotion syndrome – trouble with switching positions. Stable body balance. With all of these good factors in place, middle aged and older folks can expect a better quality of life. (1) Further, since lumbar spine extensor muscles are known to be important issues in motor control functions like balance, efforts to strengthen these specifically are important to attempt to turn around such problems as balance control.

The Novelli Wellness Center knows that back pain sufferers have many options of care from which to pick and shares what the researchers say about such options.
