Have you heard? Exercise is good. Hollstrom & Associates Inc bets you
have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get
our blood flowing! Largo chiropractic patients are encouraged
to do some type of exercise as part of their overall
treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related
Largo back pain with good reason.
It is good!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Hollstrom & Associates Inc treats a lot of
musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain,
new research was quite interesting! It
documented the suggestion and benefit
of exercise for several 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 stemmed from
isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc
welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
Hip pain issues happen singularly. Hip
pain issues may arise along 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 Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc makes sure our
patients get the help they require!
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 described
how 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? 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…without adverse side effects. (6)
Hollstrom & Associates Inc offers treatment programs of exercise blended
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert
back surgery when possible and56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Largo back pain patients!
