Tarrytown back pain with good reason.
It is good!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Tarrytown Chiropractic 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
documented the suggestion and benefit
of exercise for several specific conditions. A list of exercises for
assorted diseases – musculoskeletal system diseases
like low back pain, hip fracture, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis –
explained the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to 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) Tarrytown Chiropractic
welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip
pain issues may occur along with
low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more dependable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Tarrytown Chiropractic 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. Tarrytown Chiropractic ensures our
patients receive 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 explained that low back pain influenced muscles of the
lumbopelvic area. It’s important for back pain
sufferers. Changes 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 improve hip muscle function in back pain
patients is essential. (5) Surgeons are even noting
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)
Tarrytown Chiropractic offers treatment programs of exercise blended
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent
back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Tarrytown back pain patients!
