Have you heard? Exercise is good. Malverne Health & Wellness bets you
have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get
our blood flowing! Malverne chiropractic patients are encouraged
to do some type of exercise as part of their whole
treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related
Malverne back pain with good reason.
It is good!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Malverne Health & Wellness 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
documented 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 in addition to the proper intensity and frequency. (1)
Improved knee pain, function and quality of life resulted from
isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness
invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip
pain issues may arise in combination with
low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more reliable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Malverne Health & Wellness carefully checks 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. Malverne Health & Wellness ensures our
patients receive the help they need!
BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN
Patients with non-specific mechanical low
back pain walk differently because of different
pelvic, hip and knee movements. They also have less ability
to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further described
how 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 decide to have 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)
Malverne Health & Wellness has treatment programs of exercise combined
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent
back surgery when feasible and56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Malverne back pain patients!
