Colorado Springs Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all need to exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Colorado Springs chiropractic patients are recommended to do some sort of exercise as part of their overall treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related Colorado Springs back pain with good reason.  It’s good!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR treats a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, new research was quite interesting! It documented the recommendation and use of exercise for many specific conditions. A list of exercises for various diseases – musculoskeletal system diseases like low back pain, hip fracture, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each as well as the proper 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 in combination with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hip xrays are not reliable on their own. MRIs are more dependable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR ensures our patients get the help they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently due to different pelvic, hip and knee movements. They also are less able to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further explained that low back pain influenced muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is a big deal 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 increase hip muscle function is vital. (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…with no adverse side effects. (6) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when feasible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Colorado Springs back pain patients!
