treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related
Baton Rouge back pain with good reason.
It is good!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation cares for 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
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 as
well as the correct intensity and frequency. (1)
Improved knee pain, function and quality of life stemmed from
isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
invites patients with knee, back and hip pain to our
HIP PAIN…OR BACK PAIN?
Hip pain issues occur alone. 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 appear similar to lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation ensures our
patients get the care they require!
BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN
Patients who have non-specific mechanical low
back pain walk differently due to unique
pelvic, hip and knee movements. 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 is a big deal for back pain
sufferers. Changes 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 finding
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…with no adverse side effects. (6)
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation has treatment programs of exercise blended
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert
back surgery when feasible and56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Baton Rouge back pain patients!
