Pensacola Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

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


Since Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center treats a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, new research was quite thought-provoking! It reported the recommendation 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 – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to the correct intensity and frequency. (1) Improved knee pain, function and quality of life stemmed from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.


Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip pain issues may arise in combination with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more reliable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center ensures our patients get the care they need!


Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently because of 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’s 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 notable? Developing an exercise program to increase hip muscle function is valuable. (5) Surgeons are even noting 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Pensacola back pain patients!
