SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
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. (2) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
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!
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 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!
