Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain can be the result of acute trauma to the hip due to a fall or an auto accident. You can also experience a progressive worsening in hip pain due to underlying health issues or degenerative changes in the hip joint.

Some of the most common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Sprains
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Joint inflammation
  • Compressed nerve

You may also develop chronic hip pain due to osteoporosis, a condition where you lose density in your bones. Osteoporosis puts you at increased risk for fractures and breaks as it causes your bones to weaken and become brittle. 

Sciatica, a condition where the large nerve in your lower back is pinched or compressed, can also cause chronic hip pain. The sciatic nerve travels from your lower back down through your hips and legs, and when under pressure, this nerve pain can radiate into your hips. 

When should I seek chiropractic care for hip pain?

Chiropractic care can work well with your other treatments for hip pain. In many cases, realigning your hips and spine can reduce the severity of pain and your dependence on medications.

While you can schedule a consultation for hip issues at the first sign of pain, you should also consider your options for chiropractic care if your current therapy isn’t working. 

The chiropractic team at Back to Health, LLC, takes the time to understand the root cause of your pain. They can work with you through routine visits to keep your hips properly aligned and reduce your risks for a worsening of your pain, injury, or underlying health condition. 

Back to Health, LLC also offers on-site massage therapy and acupuncture sessions that focus on boosting blood circulation in the hips and relieving tension in the muscles that support your hip joint.

How does chiropractic care treat hip pain?

The care plan for chiropractic care in treating hip pain focuses on easing existing pain and improving flexibility and range of motion in your hip. 

When your hip pain is a side effect of a compressed nerve due to spinal misalignment or disc degeneration, your Back to Health, LLC provider can use specific manual manipulation techniques to realign your spine and take the pressure off the surrounding nerves. 

The Back to Health, LLC chiropractic team, also uses innovative techniques to realign your hips and improve your range of motion. Based on the root cause of your hip pain, your Back to Health, LLC provider can suggest at-home exercises that open the hip to increase blood flow and boost your flexibility.
