Vancouver Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

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

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Vancouver Spine Care Centre treats a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, a new paper was quite interesting! It documented 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 – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.

HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?

Hip pain issues happen singularly. Hip pain issues may come about along with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hip xrays are not reliable on their own. MRIs are more reliable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Vancouver Spine Care Centre 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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre ensures our patients get the help they require!

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 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’s important for back pain sufferers. Alterations in hip muscles may stem from alterations in the cross-sectional area and volume of muscle. Why is this important? Developing an exercise program to increase hip muscle function is vital. (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…with no adverse side effects. (6) Vancouver Spine Care Centre has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Vancouver back pain patients!
