Chiropractor hip adjustment at Fit & Healthy Chiropractic
The hip joint is the largest joint in the human body, with a very large range of motion. Moreover, correct mobility is important for everyday activities like walking, climbing and even sitting, so you will likely notice quickly if something isn’t right. Hip pain can range from mild irritation to excruciating pain and could be a result of many problems. If you are experiencing chiropractic hip pain, it is advisable to get it checked by a doctor or chiropractor to avoid lasting damage. Fit and Healthy Chiropractic can assess your problem and potentially perform a chiropractor hip adjustment to relieve pain and realign your joint.
What hip conditions can Chiropractors treat?
Before recommending treatments or exercises or performing a hip adjustment a chiropractor will perform a full examination. Often he takes a set of x-rays. Often the problem felt in your hips can be a result of misalignment in the spine, so expect your chiropractor to assess and x-ray your whole back rather than just your hip area.
The most common conditions that can be resolved with chiropractor hip adjustment and treatment:
- Irritable Hip Syndrome
- Trochanteric Bursitis
- Sprain or Strain in the Hip
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Sciatic or Piriformis Syndrome
- Hip Bursitis
- Anterior Pelvic Tilt
- Tight Hip Flexor
If you don’t know what condition is causing your hip pain, your chiropractor can diagnose the problem.
What conditions can’t be resolved by chiropractic hip treatments?
Certain causes of hip pain may not be suitable for chiropractic care. People with severe osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and cancer-related hip pain tend not to be good candidates for this treatment.
If you have other complications, such as a chronic disease, a herniated or slipped disc, or genetic abnormalities of the spine, you’ll need to discuss these with a chiropractor before treatment. They may advise you if a chiropractor can help with your hip pain or what alternative form of care you should seek.
How can a chiropractor help with hip pain?
Most of your chiropractic care for hip pain will probably be manual manipulation from your chiropractor like hip adjustment; however, other treatments and exercises are often part of your personal treatment plan. You may receive a massage or electrical muscle stimulation or even modern chiropractic developments such as deep ultrasound, infrared sauna, and laser pain therapies.
After your appointment, you may be given “homework” of specific stretches that support your treatment plan. You should always let your chiropractor know if these are painful or if you experience negative effects after your appointment.
