Do you struggle with hip pain?

Are you tired of dealing with intense pain every time you walk, or even when you’re just sitting?

Hip mobility is essential for everyday activities like walking, climbing stairs, and even sitting down comfortably. When something isn’t right in your hips, you’ll probably notice it quickly. 

Common causes of hip pain include:

  1. Inflammation
  2. Osteoarthritis and inflammatory diseases
  3. Overuse injuries
  4. Trauma

Many studies have found that chiropractic adjustments are effective in relieving sciatica, a common cause of hip pain. Manipulative therapy to the spine, knee, ankle, or foot when appropriate have been proven to help patients experiencing hip pain.

How Does a Specific Structural Correction Chiropractor Treat Hip Pain?

Structural chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine, joints, discs, nerves and nervous system recognizing that displacements in the spine and pelvic structures impact various areas of the body including the hips.  

1. Accurate diagnosis: A comprehensive structural correction chiropractic examination will identify the root cause of your hip pain. During this examination we will assess your condition with orthopedic and neurological testing as well as your posture, range of motion and spinal alignment. In some cases, additional diagnostic tests such as X-rays or MRI scans may be ordered to gather more information. 

2. Spinal Corrections: During the initial phase of care, spinal corrections including hip and extremity adjustments are used to correct displacements of the spine and pelvis. These corrections relieve pressure on the nerves, hip joints and spinal discs thus improving overall joint function which reduces hip pain.

3. Lifestyle Recommendations: In addition to hands-on spinal corrections, specific structural corrective chiropractic provides lifestyle recommendations to support the initial phase of care and to prevent future hip problems.  These may include in-office spinal remodeling exercises or a home stretching and strengthen program for the hip and spinal muscles.
