Have you heard? Exercise is good. Minster Chiropractic Center bets you

our blood flowing! Minster chiropractic patients are recommended
to do some type of exercise as part of their general
treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related
Minster back pain with good reason.
It is beneficial!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Minster Chiropractic Center 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 value
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) Minster Chiropractic Center
invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
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 dependable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Minster Chiropractic Center 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. Minster Chiropractic Center ensures our
patients receive the care they require!
BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN
Patients with non-specific mechanical low
back pain walk differently due to unique
pelvic, hip and knee movements. They also have less ability
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 stem 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 improved
range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and
walking capacity…without adverse side effects. (6)
Minster Chiropractic Center offers treatment programs of exercise combined
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert
back surgery when feasible as well as56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Minster back pain patients!
