Chiropractic Help for Hip Pain

By Sara Butler

As you get older, you may notice your hips begin to be a source of discomfort and pain. Hip pain is caused by a myriad of things. Part of dealing with your hip pain is understanding it -- and that’s where the chiropractors at The Joint come in handy. Here’s what you need to know about hip pain, its causes, and how the chiropractors at The Joint may be able to help you find relief.


Joint pain is one of the indications that you may have osteoarthritis. This condition is caused by the wear and tear your body goes through over a period of years. If you aren’t at an ideal body weight, then you may have a higher chance of experiencing osteoarthritis due to the pressure the extra weight puts on your joints.

Strains, Sprains, and Fractures

Hip pain can also be caused by fractures in the bones of the upper leg or hips, sprains to the ligaments that support the hips joints, and added strain to the muscles of the lower back. Any sprains or strains to the lower back, knees, and ankles can also cause hip pain.

Legs are Uneven

Most people can experience legs of uneven lengths due to joint restrictions and dysfunctions. It’s not that their legs are physically uneven, but they function as if they are. This problem can lead to hip pain but can be identified and treated by the chiropractors at The Joint.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

The sacroiliac joint joins together your sacrum and pelvis at the base of your spine. If this joint is experiencing dysfunction or restriction, then intense back and hip pain can be the result.

How Chiropractors Can Help

One of the best things about chiropractic care is that chiropractors don’t try to simply treat your pain but find the root cause of it and work to correct it -- eliminating pain through treatment of the main problem. If you’re experiencing hip pain, come into The Joint today for an assessment. The chiropractor may determine that hands-on adjustments, stretching, exercise, and hot/cold therapy can benefit you and help you live life pain-free again.

One thing that’s for sure about hip pain – almost every single cause can be treated effectively by the chiropractors at The Joint! So don't just live with it. Come into The Joint today for an assessment and begin to live pain-free again.
