Hip Pain

The actual hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint where your thigh bone connects to your pelvis. It is quite stable due to the large amount of musculature in the area. This area is less frequently injured in sporting events than other joints, but it is not absent problems. Lack of mobility, pain, and muscular imbalances are common sources of pain.

Adjustments can assist in the restoration of the hip’s range of motion. A therapy may be used to speed healing. Therapeutic exercises or stretches may be prescribed to help restore normal muscular patterns in the hip.

A unique treatment for the hips comes from looking at the entire kinetic chain of your lower extremity. This includes the feet to the ankle, up through the shin bones, into the thigh, and even transmitting forces into the low back. Have you ever been adjusted and gotten relief, only to find that the symptoms return after a brief period of walking around? This may be caused by an issue lower down in the leg.

It is important to realize that while we are made of many smaller parts and joints, the body functions as a unit. It is important to consider the whole body when trying to treat an issue such as hip pain.
