Pain In the Hip Can Stop You In Your Tracks
By Tom Herrin
Have you ever had hip pain? I mean the kind of pain that seems to start and never let up. It can be a pain that seems to radiate down through your leg. No matter what you do, there is no stopping it. It doesn’t matter whether you are standing up, sitting down, or flat on your back, there doesn’t seem to be any position in which you can obtain any relief. This is usually sciatic pain, and it can be miserable. It can be intense enough that you are unable to function in any of your normal activities. If this sounds like you, the next visit you make should probably be to a chiropractor such as those at The Joint Chiropractic.
Flare-Ups Can Stop You In Your Tracks
Sciatic pain, or sciatica, affects a large number of people. When the sciatic nerve becomes irritated, the pain can be excruciating. Absolutely no relief can be had without the care of a trained chiropractor. There have been many nights when I was hit by this pain. The best relief I would have would be to walk the floor. That wasn’t much relief, but I couldn’t be still without unbearable pain. Chiropractic treatment was the only thing that could provide relief for me. Many people have this same unpleasant experience.
Relief Can Be Available
Most experts agree that chiropractic is the best available care for sciatic pain. Treatment may be a combination of several things. Many times ice may be applied, helping to reduce inflammation. A chiropractor may use electrical stimulation that seems to relax the muscles, allowing pressure on the nerve to ease. The most common method is the chiropractic adjustment. This helps the joint to return to its normal position. Joint restrictions are the most frequent root of much of this problem.
A Regular Plan Of Care May Be Best
Sciatic pain may have a habit of returning at unexpected times. Regular visits to a chiropractor can help to keep this problem at bay.
