Hip Pain - Chiropractic Care May Help

Our hips are big, important joints and they play an essential role in our body’s normal movement and stability.

There are many common causes of hip pain, including:

  • Arthritis

  • Injuries or trauma

  • Inflammation

  • Stress due to wear and tear

  • Compensating for other misaligned body structures

  • Pain which originates elsewhere, but it felt in the hip area

When normal movement is restricted, other parts of the body need to work harder to compensate. Just like all parts of our bodies, if our hips are misaligned, it can have effects in other areas.

How do our hips become misaligned?

  • Poor posture

  • Sitting or standing too long

  • Trauma or injury

  • Compensating for other misaligned body structures

  • Unusual or incorrect sleeping position

Chiropractors will seek to learn the cause and the source of hip pain (along with a thorough patient history) and may create a personalized treatment plan.  A chiropractor may recommend natural treatment options, such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments

  • Stretching

  • Exercises to build supporting muscles

  • Massage

  • Cold Laser Therapy

  • Postural advice

Taking care of your hip health is important for everyone, including children! Consider their growth as well as their activity levels: all which impact proper hip functioning. Our hips and our entire body benefit from regular chiropractic care!
