Have you heard? Exercise is good. Apple Country Chiropractic bets you

our blood flowing! Williamson chiropractic patients are encouraged
to do some sort of exercise as part of their general
treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related
Williamson back pain with good reason.
It is beneficial!
SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since Apple Country Chiropractic cares for a lot of
musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain,
new research was quite thought-provoking! It
reported the recommendation and use
of exercise for many 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 in addition to 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) Apple Country Chiropractic
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 in combination with
low back issues like spinal stenosis. Hip
xrays are not reliable on their own. MRIs are more reliable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may appear similar to lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What Apple Country Chiropractic 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. Apple Country Chiropractic makes sure our
patients receive 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 explained that low back pain influenced muscles of the
lumbopelvic area. It’s 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 improve hip muscle function in back pain
patients is essential. (5) Surgeons are even finding
value in having patients who decide to have 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)
Apple Country 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 Williamson back pain patients!
