When people think of chiropractic care they tend to think of treatment for the lower back, neck, or headaches. What they may not be aware of is that chiropractors treat the whole musculoskeletal system, and this includes the hip.
Hip pain will affect both men and women of all ages, it will also present in many ways, either sudden in onset or slowly develop over weeks, months, or years.
The symptoms of hip pain will also vary considerably, it can include dull, sharp, or stiff feelings and sometimes there may be a locking, grinding, or clicking sensation felt. The pain can be felt locally in the hip, nearby in the buttocks, lower back, thigh, groin and even the knees. There may even be tingling, pins and needles or weakness of the surrounding muscles of the hip.
Common types of hip pain we see
Hip OA (Osteoarthritis)
Contributing factors to hip pain
- Older age
- Decrease in exercise and/or fitness levels
- Overuse (Certain jobs, repetitive strain)
At Cleveland Chiropractic we take a functional approach to care because there can be many factors involved in treating low back pain. First, we need to establish what is causing your pain and dysfunction. Orthopaedic, neurological, and functional movement examinations are performed to establish an accurate diagnosis.
Once we have an idea of what is going wrong, we will discuss and explain these findings with you. We want to create a treatment plan to get you moving well again ASAP and an environment where we can work together for the best possible outcome. Each treatment plan is tailored to the patient’s individual needs and will include not only your care at Cleveland chiropractic, but home rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle modifications needed to get you back on track.
Getting out of pain is great. But how do we keep it away? The final step is building a strong and healthy body, lowering your injury risk and building confidence within our patients to get back to moving well and achieving their goals.
