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!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
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 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
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!
BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN
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? It suggests that development of
exercise programs to improve hip muscle function in back pain
patients is vital. (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!
