Since Shoreline Medical Services/ 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) Patients with knee osteoarthritis benefitted from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises with improvement of their knee pain, function and quality of life. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.


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 Shoreline Medical Services/ 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. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office makes sure our patients receive the care they need!


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? It suggests that development of exercise programs to enhance hip muscle function in back pain patients is essential. (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) Shoreline Medical Services/ 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!
