Toronto Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all need to exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Toronto 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 Toronto back pain with good reason.  It is good!

SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS

Since Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 recommendation and use of exercise for several 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 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 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 appear similar to lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre makes sure our patients receive 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 are less able to extend their hip flexors and abductor muscles. (4) Researchers further explained that low back pain affected 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 of value? It suggests that development of exercise programs to improve 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when feasible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Toronto back pain patients!
