The hip is composed of a ‘ball-and-socket’ joint that connects the thighbone to the hipbone. It is an integral part of everyday activity, facilitating even the simplest of tasks, such as walking and bending. When pain presents in the hip, it can lower quality of life and cause chronic discomfort. Sometimes, hip pain is caused by an injury or a spinal subluxation. Other times, it can be the result of cartilage deterioration – a condition known as arthritis.
Chiropractic Treatment for Hip Pain
Although hip pain is not always cured with treatment, many patients do experience significant relief with regular visits to a chiropractor. At our office, we treat patients based on the cause of their pain rather than their symptoms.
Our treatments can:
- Reduce inflammation
- Relax painful spasms
- Strengthen weak muscles
- Mobilize stiff joints
For example, a patient with hip pain caused by a compressed disc in the back could experience relief using spinal decompression and chiropractic adjustments. For those who are experiencing immobility caused by joint stiffness and arthritis, we can help manage symptoms using physiotherapy and special exercises designed to improve joint health and motion range
For more information about how chiropractic can alleviate hip pain, contact us today. We’ll schedule a time to meet with you to discuss your symptoms and the ways our treatments could benefit you.
