Vancouver Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

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

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Vancouver Disc Centers cares for a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, new research was quite interesting! It reported the suggestion 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 – explained 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) Vancouver Disc Centers 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 arise in combination 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 appear similar to lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Vancouver Disc Centers 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. Vancouver Disc Centers ensures our patients get the care they need!

BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN

Patients with non-specific mechanical low back pain are different in their pelvic, hip and knee movements while walking. 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 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) Vancouver Disc Centers 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!
