Most of the time Chiropractic can help with Hip Pain due to:
Overuse - physically active people experience hip pain as a result of overuse.
Sciatica- The sciatic nerve runs from your pelvic region down the back of your thigh all the way to your feet. Inflammation or irritation of the sciatic nerve results in Sciatica.
Trauma- While overuse injuries occur gradually, traumatic injuries aren’t so subtle. If you fracture or dislocate your hip, the pain can be immediate and severe. Even if you don’t break any bones, your ligaments and muscles may be strained, sprained, or bruised as a result of slipping and falling.
Arthritis-Osteoarthritis (OA) is an inflammatory joint disease and the most common cause of hip pain among older adults. It causes stiffness, swelling, joint degeneration, and progressive cartilage loss. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is another inflammatory disease that causes joint pain. Rather than being caused by wear and tear, RA is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks healthy tissues as if they were foreign invaders.There’s no cure for arthritis, but in a study conducted in 2010, more than four out of five patients with hip arthritis noticed improved symptoms after nine or fewer chiropractic treatments.
Inflammation- Arthritis isn’t the only type of inflammation that can cause hip pain. Swelling can occur within the joint itself as a result of an injury or illness. Space is limited here, and if the joint fills with fluid or blood, you’ll experience pain.Since one aim of chiropractic care is to reduce inflammation, Chiropractic care can certainly address hip pain caused by swelling.
