Burlington and Hamilton Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Spinal Care Clinic bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients are recommended to do some type of exercise as part of their overall treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related Burlington and Hamilton back pain with good reason.  It’s good!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Spinal Care Clinic cares for a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, a new paper was quite thought-provoking! It documented the recommendation and use of exercise for many specific conditions. A list of exercises for different diseases – musculoskeletal system diseases like low back pain, hip fracture, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis – explained the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each as well as the proper intensity and frequency. (1) Improved knee pain, function and quality of life resulted from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Spinal Care Clinic welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.

HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?

Hip pain issues happen singularly. Hip pain issues may occur in combination with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hip xrays are not reliable on their own. MRIs are more reliable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Spinal Care Clinic carefully examines for are non-spine related issues like avascular necrosis of the hip and hip fractures so that those may be co-managed as well. Spinal Care Clinic ensures our patients receive the care they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently because of unique pelvic, hip and knee movements. They also are less able to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further described how low back pain influenced muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It’s a big deal for back pain sufferers. Changes in hip muscles may stem from alterations in the cross-sectional area and volume of muscle. Why is this important? It suggests that development of exercise programs to improve hip muscle function in back pain patients is essential. (5) Surgeons are even noting value in having patients who choose back surgery perform “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it helped improve range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…with no adverse side effects. (6) Spinal Care Clinic has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients!
