Q & A

What is hip pain?

Hip pain tends to occur on one side of the body, often because of an injury or a degenerative condition. Hip pain can also stem from a spinal imbalance of some sort. 

 

Fortunately, there are plenty of treatment options for hip pain that aim to relieve discomfort, increase your range of motion, and restore function to a painful hip. 

 

Whether your hip pain is mild or severe, your chiropractor can uncover the underlying cause and create an individualized care plan for pain management. 

 

When you arrive at Spinal Correction Centers experiencing hip pain, the team uses precise measurements and state-of-the-art diagnostic tests to find the source of your hip pain and develop a suitable chiropractic treatment plan. 

What causes hip pain?

A range of conditions and injuries can cause pain in one or both of your hips. Hip pain can stem from any of the structures within the hip joint, including the bones, cartilage, and tendons, or it can be referred pain from elsewhere. 

 

You might experience hip pain from:

 

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Traumatic injuries (e.g., fractures, dislocations)
  • Overuse injuries
  • Complications in the lumbar spine (low back)
  • Auto accidents

 

Once your provider at Spinal Correction Centers makes a diagnosis, they examine your body mechanics and choose treatments that reduce inflammation in and around the hips. 

How do chiropractors treat hip pain?

Spinal Correction Centers offers several strategies to improve hip pain and any resulting mobility issues. One such option is structural correction, which aligns your spine to increase your overall range of motion and relieve any inflammation causing pain in the hips. 

 

Your chiropractor starts by locating the cause of your hip pain, then creates a strategy to deliver corrective chiropractic adjustments. Once corrected we will educate you on the importance of maintenance  care to ensure you experience long-term relief from your hip pain.

 

Another option is massage therapy, which uses manual tissue manipulation to increase circulation and improve your healing capabilities. It also reduces muscle tension, which can contribute to musculoskeletal discomfort like hip pain.
