West Des Moines Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

West Des Moines chiropractic patients are encouraged to do some type of exercise as part of their whole treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related West Des Moines back pain with good reason.  It’s good!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Executive Chiropractic of Iowa cares for 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 recommendation and value 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 correct 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa invites 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 occur 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 mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Executive Chiropractic of Iowa 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. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa ensures our patients receive the care 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 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 important for back pain sufferers. Alterations 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 valuable. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who decide to have back surgery perform “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it helped improve range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…without adverse side effects. (6) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when feasible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate West Des Moines back pain patients!
