End Hip Pain With Chiropractic

The hip joint is located between the pelvis and the upper end of the femur (also known as the thigh bone).  Although this ball-and-socket joint is extremely stable, anchored to the pelvis by tough ligaments, conditions can arise that generate mild to debilitating hip pain.

Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life starts by identifying the source of hip pain.  This is accomplished by reviewing patients’ medical histories and conducting complete physical examinations to determine if the discomfort is actually referred pain — meaning that its source is elsewhere in the body, such as the spine — or if it is, indeed, emanating from the hip joint itself.

From there, your chiropractor develops a comprehensive care plan.  A number of conditions can spark hip pain:

  • Vertebral subluxation
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Short leg
  • Strains and sprains
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Steroid use
  • Fracture
  • Other conditions such as congenital disorders and fibromyalgia

If you think hip pain is just for aging baby boomers and their parents, think again!  Even young people can experience hip pain.  Researchers find that the pain is more likely to be caused by congenital hip dysplasia, athletic injuries and trauma — such as a car accident.

Fortunately, your doctor at Chiropractic for Life knows how to get patients’ spines back on track!Dr. Barbara Smith
