Easley Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

October 22, 2019

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Young Chiropractic bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Easley chiropractic patients are recommended to do some sort of exercise as part of their overall treatment plan for hip pain in addition to any related Easley back pain with good reason.  It is good!


Since Young 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 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 – described the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to the proper intensity and frequency. (1) Improved knee pain, function and quality of life stemmed from isolated hip and leg strengthening exercises. (2) Young Chiropractic welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.


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 Young 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. Young Chiropractic makes sure our patients receive the care they need!


Patients who have 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 described how 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? Developing an exercise program to improve hip muscle function is valuable. (5) Surgeons are even noting value in having patients who decide to have back surgery do “prehabilitation” exercises before back surgery as it helped improve range of motion, leg pain intensity, lumbar spine extensor muscle endurance and walking capacity…with no adverse side effects. (6) Young Chiropractic offers treatment programs of exercise blended with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when possible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Easley back pain patients!
