Richmond Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Johnson Chiropractic bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Richmond chiropractic patients are encouraged to do some type of exercise as part of their general treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related Richmond back pain with good reason.  It’s good!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Johnson Chiropractic 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 recommendation and use of exercise for several specific conditions. A list of exercises for assorted 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 stemmed from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Johnson Chiropractic invites 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 come about along with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more dependable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Johnson Chiropractic carefully checks for are non-spine related issues like avascular necrosis of the hip and hip fractures so that those may be co-managed as well. Johnson Chiropractic makes sure our patients receive the help they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients with non-specific mechanical low back pain are different 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 described how low back pain influenced muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is important for back pain sufferers. Alterations in hip muscles may stem from alterations in the cross-sectional area and volume of muscle. Why is this important? Developing an exercise program to improve hip muscle function is vital. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who decide to have back surgery do “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it improved range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…with no adverse side effects. (6) Johnson Chiropractic offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Richmond back pain patients!
