West Palm Beach Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Chiropractic Care bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all need to exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach back pain with good reason.  It’s beneficial!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Chiropractic Care treats 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 reported the suggestion and value 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) Patients with knee osteoarthritis found relief with isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises with improvement of their knee pain, function and quality of life. (2) Chiropractic Care welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.

HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?

Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip pain issues may arise in combination with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more reliable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may appear similar to lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Chiropractic Care carefully checks for are non-spine related issues like avascular necrosis of the hip and hip fractures so that those may be managed with other healthcare practitioners as well. Chiropractic Care makes sure our patients receive the help they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain are unique in their pelvic, hip and knee movements while walking. They also are less able to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further explained that low back pain affected muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is 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 notable? Developing an exercise program to improve hip muscle function is valuable. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who choose back surgery do “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it helped improve range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…without adverse side effects. (6) Chiropractic Care offers treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate West Palm Beach back pain patients!
