Sandy Springs Back Pain with Hip Pain Helped with Exercise

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


Since Cross Chiropractic Center treats a lot of musculoskeletal pain like back pain and neck pain and related arm and leg pain, new research was quite thought-provoking! It documented the suggestion and value 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 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) Cross Chiropractic Center welcomes patients with knee, back and hip pain to our chiropractic practice.


Hip pain issues occur alone. Hip pain issues may come about 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 Cross Chiropractic 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. Cross Chiropractic Center makes sure our patients receive the care they require!


Patients who have non-specific mechanical low back pain walk differently because of different 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 affected muscles of the lumbopelvic area. It’s 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 of value? Developing an exercise program to improve hip muscle function is vital. (5) Surgeons are even finding value in having patients who decide to have back surgery perform “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) Cross Chiropractic Center has treatment programs of exercise combined with evidence based spinal manipulation and nutrition to prevent back surgery when feasible and56 pre-habilitate and rehabilitate Sandy Springs back pain patients!
