Understanding Hip Pain
It can become difficult to run, dance, walk, or even stand without a fully functional hip joint. It is time to see a specialist for your hip pain if your daily activities become more troublesome and at-home remedies such as pain relievers, heat/ice packs, and resting do not work. Our professional staff at Sofos Chiropractic in White Plains offers hip pain relief through our natural treatment methods. We will work with you over several treatment sessions to reduce muscle pain and prevent it from reoccurring in the future.
Common Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by a variety of different factors such as:
- Arthritis- This is one of the most common causes of hip pain. It can be due to trauma, age, or other factors. Arthritis in the hip begins when the cushions in your joints begin to break down, resulting in the bones rubbing together, causing stiffness, pain, and loss of mobility.
- Hip bursitis- This condition results in inflammation of the bursa, a fluid-filled sac that decreases friction between the tendons, muscles, and bones.
- Tendonitis of the hip- This condition can be a result of overuse of the tendons or an injury. When tendons in the hips become swollen, inflamed, or irritated, the pain can become intolerable.
Other causes of hip pain include:
- Snapping hip syndrome
- Osteonecrosis of the hip
- Hip labral tear
- Hip fracture
- Hip dislocation
- Hip muscle tear
Symptoms of Hip Pain
Symptoms can vary depending on the condition causing your hip pain. Patients who experience hip pain often experience accompanied pain in the thigh, groin, lower back, buttocks, or other parts of the body. Sometimes you may notice that lower back pain begins to radiate into your hip joint. This is because hip pain can be a symptom of an underlying issue occurring somewhere else in the body. You may also notice pain that gradually worsens with activity especially hip pain caused by arthritis.
Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain
Our chiropractor uses various techniques to manage hip pain. This may include manual adjustments, vibration therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises, and more. Spinal manipulation is the most common technique performed for hip pain because it helps restore joint mobility. In addition, the hip joint can be adjusted using a painless drop-table technique. Our chiropractor will assess your hip pain and medical history during your first consultation to determine what combination of treatments are needed to improve your condition.
