Hip Pain Relief Through Chiropractic Care
Most people suffering from hip pain can gain a measure of pain relief from safe, gentle, effective chiropractic care.
Arthritic degeneration can cause some people to have hip pain. The hip joint, which is a ball and socket joint, has experienced wear and tear over the years and now is bone on bone. This can cause the pelvis to be out of alignment and moving improperly. A chiropractic adjustment corrects alignment and movement. A soft-tissue technique where gentle, sustained pressure is applied to the muscles and fascia can aid in the repair of these injured tissues. While these methods can't correct arthritis, they can help reduce inflammation and irritation of the hip joint and help patients to gain a great deal of relief from their hip discomfort.
Some patients have hip pain, but it’s not really pain in the hip joint, but an area of the pelvis called the sacroiliac joint. The sacroiliac joint is located on both sides of the lower back. If it is out of alignment and not moving properly, it responds very well to chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractors are trained to assess and treat hip conditions and chiropractic care offers a drug-free, non-surgical, safe, effective, gentle solution for patients to achieve pain relief.
