treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related
Groton back pain with good reason.
It is beneficial!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Hutter Chiropractic Office treats a lot of
musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain,
a new paper was quite thought-provoking! It
reported the suggestion 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 –
explained the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each as
well as the proper intensity and frequency. (1)
Improved knee pain, function and quality of life resulted from
isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Hutter Chiropractic Office
invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip
pain issues may arise along with
low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more dependable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Hutter Chiropractic Office 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. Hutter Chiropractic Office makes sure our
patients receive the care they need!
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 described
how low back pain affected muscles of the
lumbopelvic area. It’s 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? Developing an exercise program to improve hip
muscle function is vital. (5) Surgeons are even noting
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)
Hutter Chiropractic Office has treatment programs of exercise blended
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent
back surgery when feasible and56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Groton back pain patients!
