It's Hip to be Pain-Free

By Donna Stark

I think I can safely bet that you have used your hips today in some way or another. Whether you have been sitting, walking, running, or just climbing out of bed, they have been used. And that’s because our hips and our movements are deeply intertwined. Even when you think you aren’t using them, think again, because if you are upright, they are still bearing the weight of your upper body.

It used to be that hip problems were only associated with aging, but in recent years, that perception has changed. More and more people are experiencing hip pain caused by stress, overuse, trauma, arthritis, and many other health conditions than ever before. Does this sound like you? Are you struggling to function every day? If so, it may be time to see your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic for help!

Causes of Hip Pain

Over the course of a lifetime, your hips will experience a lot of wear and tear and can be the result of many different conditions. Let’s take a look at a few of them here.

  • Arthritis - Arthritis occurs when there is progressive cartilage loss and joint degeneration. Common chiropractic techniques can help to alleviate this type of pain.
  • Injury - A traumatic injury to the hip can happen to anyone, but elderly patients are often more susceptible to these as their balance and coordination typically decline through the aging process. Chiropractic adjustments help to improve this type of decline and can reduce the risk of further injury.
  • Sciatica - Sciatica pain is generally the direct result of a compression to the sciatica nerve, so by placing the spine in its proper position, chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce the irritation, stress, and pain experienced by the patient.
  • Inflammation - If an injury or illness triggers inflammation, the space in your hip joint can easily become filled with fluid or blood, causing pain. Your chiropractor can reduce this inflammation and pain while still helping to restore function in your hip.
