Common Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by several factors. Chiropractic care focuses on identifying the cause and correcting it to relieve the ache you are experiencing.
Arthritis and Inflammation
Hip pain can occur due to arthritis and inflammatory conditions, such as bursitis. Arthritis can cause chronic pain in your hip and other joints, as well as swelling and stiffness. ;
Injuries can contribute to hip pain. Acute injuries occur suddenly, and can be caused by trauma, falls, or simply moving the wrong way. You may also have an overuse injury, which can trigger pain, inflammation, and tight ligaments or muscles around the hip. This can occur due to sports or other types of physical or daily activities.
Referred Hip Pain
Hip pain can also be referred. You can feel discomfort in the hip, however, it is actually caused by an issue in another region. Problems with the lower back, spine, legs, or abdomen can cause referred hip pain. Sciatica is an example of this type of pain. The sciatic nerve begins in the lower back and travels down each leg. If the sciatic nerve is pinched within the back, you can feel discomfort in your hips and legs.
Chiropractic Treatments for Hip Pain
Chiropractic care offers several effective treatments for hip pain. These include chiropractic adjustments, cold laser therapy, massage therapy, and corrective exercises.
Chiropractic adjustments use gentle thrusts and pressure to correct misalignments. Chiropractic adjustment for the spine is also known as spinal manipulation.
In addition to adjusting your spine, our chiropractors may adjust your hips, legs, and other joints to correct your misalignments.
Corrective exercises can also help relieve hip pain. Our chiropractors will determine which exercises are helpful for you and teach you how to do them in their office. Then, you can continue the exercises at home, which can help maintain alignment, strengthen areas that are weak, and increase flexibility.
We offer many complementary treatments for hip pain. Cold laser therapy can help relieve discomfort, reduce inflammation, and help the body heal naturally. Along with that, massage therapy can relieve muscle tension and reduce stress, which can lead to pain relief and help you maintain proper alignment.
