The hip is one of the largest, strongest joints in the human body. In fact, it’s actually made up of more than one joint: A ball-and-socket that connects the thigh bone to the hip and the sacroiliac joint that connects the lower portion of the spine to the upper pelvis. These joints influence each other so when one is injured, other areas of the pelvic structure can become compromised. General wear and tear is one of the most common causes of hip pain. How can chiropractic treatment help ease discomfort?

Reasons for Hip Pain

We treat many patients with degenerative arthritis, a painful condition where cartilage in the joint starts to wear away. During this deterioration process, exposed bone within the joint can result in chronic pain, stiffness or the need for hip replacement surgery.

The hip is one of the most used joints in the body, which also makes it more susceptible to injury. Aside from degenerative conditions like arthritis, what else can cause hip discomfort?

  • Bursitis: Our joints are cushioned by small sacs of fluid called bursae. When one becomes inflamed, it’s no longer able to reduce friction between the bones, muscles and joints. The result can be sudden, severe pain and immobility.
  • Overuse: When we perform the same movements for long periods, muscles can become bruised, strained or torn. When this occurs in the hip, the joint and surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments become inflamed and irritated.
  • Pregnancy: Carrying a baby puts more pressure on the lumbar and sacral regions, as the pelvis widens for birthing. Proper alignment of the pelvis, hip and spine can ensure a more comfortable pregnancy, safer delivery and easier post-partum recovery.

Chiropractic Treatments

Chiropractors can accurately identify and correct mechanical disturbances in the hip that may cause pain or malfunction. Your hip problem could be the result of sacroiliac misalignment, which we can adjust through gentle manipulation and muscle lengthening exercises. Damage to the sacroiliac joint, located at the base of the spine, can impact range of motion and lead to premature degenerative changes.

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."
