Hip Strengthening Aids in Low Back Pain Rehab.

A review of data from five published studies suggests that incorporating hip strengthening exercises into a low back pain treatment program can lead to greater improvements in both low back pain and disability. This finding is not entirely surprising as past research has shown that hip/pelvic and low back issues often co-occur. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to assess and treat spine/hip conditions, often using manual manipulation, physiotherapy modalities, specific exercises, and nutritional recommendations.
