Watertown Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Watertown Wellness Center bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all need to exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Watertown chiropractic patients are recommended to do some type of exercise as part of their overall treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related Watertown back pain with good reason.  It’s beneficial!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Watertown Wellness Center 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 reported the suggestion and use of exercise for many specific conditions. A list of exercises for various diseases – musculoskeletal system diseases like low back pain, hip fracture, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each as well as the proper 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) Watertown Wellness Center welcomes 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 arise 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 Watertown Wellness Center carefully examines for are non-spine related issues like avascular necrosis of the hip and hip fractures so that those may be co-managed as well. Watertown Wellness Center ensures our patients get the help they require!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients with non-specific mechanical low back pain are unique in their pelvic, hip and knee movements while walking. They also have less ability to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further explained that low back pain influenced muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It is a big deal for back pain sufferers. Changes in hip muscles may stem 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 finding value in having patients who choose back surgery do “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it improved range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…without adverse side effects. (6) Watertown Wellness Center has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Watertown back pain patients!
