Since Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville cares for a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, new research was quite interesting! It reported the recommendation and benefit 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 – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to the correct intensity and frequency. (1) Patients with knee osteoarthritis benefitted from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises with improvement of their knee pain, function and quality of life.

Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip pain issues may come about 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 appear similar to lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville 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. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville ensures our patients get the help they need!


Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently because of unique pelvic, hip and knee movements. They also have less ability to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further explained that low back pain influenced muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is important for back pain sufferers. Alterations in hip muscles may come 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 vital. (5) Surgeons are even noting value in having patients who decide to have back surgery perform “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it improved range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…without adverse side effects. (6) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate St. Francisville back pain patients!
