SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Moriarty Chiropractic 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 reported 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 – explained the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each as well as 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) Moriarty Chiropractic welcomes 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 occur in combination with low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hip xrays are not reliable on their own. MRIs are more dependable for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Moriarty 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. Moriarty Chiropractic ensures our patients receive the care 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 is a big deal 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 vital. (5) Surgeons are even noting value in having patients who choose 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) Moriarty Chiropractic offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when possible as well as56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Nashua back pain patients!
