McHenry Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Spengel Chiropractic bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all need to exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! McHenry chiropractic patients are encouraged to do some sort of exercise as part of their whole treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related McHenry back pain with good reason.  It is beneficial!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Spengel Chiropractic cares for a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, a new paper was quite interesting! It documented 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 in addition to the correct 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) Spengel 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 occur 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 appear similar to lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Spengel Chiropractic carefully examines 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. Spengel Chiropractic ensures our patients get the care they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently due to unique 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 affected muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is important for back pain sufferers. Changes in hip muscles may come from alterations in the cross-sectional area and volume of muscle. Why is this important? It suggests that development of exercise programs to improve hip muscle function in back pain patients is essential. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who decide to have 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) Spengel Chiropractic offers 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 McHenry back pain patients!
