Treating Hip Pain
Have you been living with chronic hip pain with no relief in sight? Have you tried everything you can think of to no avail? It is time to consider chiropractic care for your hip pain treatment. Read below to learn more about how solutions like those offered at Armeli Chiropractic in Mendota Heights can help.
Causes of Hip Pain
Your hips go through a good bit of work every day, so hip pain is not an uncommon condition. However, the causes of hip pain vary according to the patient. Some common causes include:
- Spinal misalignment
- Sprains or strains
- Tense hip flexors
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Hip dysplasia
- Pelvic tilt
Symptoms of Hip Pain
Hip pain is more than simply pain. Issues in the hip can lead to other symptoms, as well, including:
- Pain in the buttocks, thighs, and groin
- Clicking sounds when you move
- Weakness or difficulty moving
- Tenderness in and around the hip joint
- Sudden, intense, shooting pain
Am I At Risk of Hip Pain?
Anyone can experience hip pain, but some people are at a higher risk than others. Some of the risk factors include:
- Current or previous hip injuries
- Living a sedentary lifestyle which can weaken the muscles and joints
- Playing a sport that makes you more vulnerable to injury
- Carrying excess weight that puts more pressure on your joints than they are designed to hold
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
Chiropractic adjustments are an incredible way to address hip pain. Such adjustments can help ensure that your hips and gait are even, so there isn’t uneven wear and tear on your hip muscles and joints. They also help ensure that your sciatic nerve isn’t compressed, which can resolve a great deal of pain and weakness in the hip area.
Physical therapy is another effective method for treating hip pain. Through targeted exercises, your hip muscles are stretched and strengthened. This helps relieve tension, address muscle weakness, and support your hip joint. Nutritional guidance can also be utilized when weight issues are contributing to your hip pain.
