SPECIFIC EXERCISES FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS
Since The Novelli Wellness Center 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
documented the recommendation and use
of exercise for many specific conditions. A list of exercises for
assorted diseases – musculoskeletal system diseases
like low back pain, hip fracture, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis –
explained the preventive and rehabilitative effects for each in addition to the correct 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) The Novelli Wellness Center
welcomes 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. Hips xrays alone are not reliable. MRIs are more reliable
for confirming diagnosis. Hip pain may mimic lumbar
spinal stenosis. (3) What The Novelli Wellness Center carefully examines 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. The Novelli Wellness Center makes sure our
patients get the care they need!
BACK PAIN RELATED HIP PAIN
Patients with non-specific mechanical low
back pain are unique in their pelvic, hip
and knee movements while walking. 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’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 notable? 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…with no adverse side effects. (6)
The Novelli Wellness Center has treatment programs of exercise blended
with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent
back surgery when feasible as well as56 pre-habilitate
and rehabilitate Buffalo, NY back pain patients!
