Carrolltown Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

Have you heard? Exercise is good. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation bets you have! Whether we like it or not, we all must exercise, move, and get our blood flowing! Carrolltown chiropractic patients are encouraged to do some type of exercise as part of their whole treatment plan for hip pain as well as any related Carrolltown back pain with good reason.  It is beneficial!


Since Gormish Chiropractic & 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 recommendation and benefit of exercise for many 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) 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.


Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip pain issues may occur 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 mimic lumbar spinal stenosis. (3) What Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation carefully checks 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation ensures our patients receive the help they require!


Patients who have 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 described how 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 enhance hip muscle function in back pain patients is essential. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who choose 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…without adverse side effects. (6) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to avert back surgery when possible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Carrolltown back pain patients!
