SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 reported the suggestion 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 correct intensity and frequency. (1) Improved knee pain, function and quality of life stemmed from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 occur 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 Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic ensures our patients receive 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 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 is important for back pain sufferers. Changes in hip muscles may come from alterations in the cross-sectional area and volume of muscle. Why is this notable? 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when feasible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Augusta back pain patients!
