Pain-Free Hips for Spring
By Donna Stark
There are so many reasons to love the spring season but none like the feeling you get when you head outdoors for some exercise. So, it's understandable how devastated you may feel if your hip pain is keeping you on the couch or at your doctor's office. But it's even more devastating if the words "hip replacement" have been mentioned to you. Before you decide on any type of invasive treatment, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. They may be able to keep you from going under the knife.
Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can make it difficult for you to stand, walk, sleep, and sit. It can affect every part of your day and every movement you need to make. For many, hip replacement is the final destination but conservative treatments should always be considered first, especially if one of the conditions below is causing the pain. Check out these common hip issues that the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can treat successfully.

Safety of Chiropractic Care
Unlike surgeries which always come with their own set of risks, chiropractic care is an approach that encourages the body to heal itself naturally. With gentle, effective, and precise adjustments, your chiropractor will correct any alignment issues you may have in the spine. This will help provide optimal support to your body and alleviate excess strain and pressure on your hips. Correct alignment of the spine will also improve joint mobilization, reduce stiffness, decrease inflammation, and alleviate pain.
By targeting and correcting these issues, your body will have a greater chance of healing itself naturally. But it won't be instantaneous. It's important to keep in mind that even though you may feel some relief after your first adjustment (many people do!), it is vital that you continue with the course of treatment your chiropractor recommends.
Adjustments and More
In addition to the adjustments included in your treatment plan, your chiropractor will also be able to offer plenty of ideas on what stretches and exercises you can do on your own to help your body heal as quickly as it can. Improving your body's flexibility and strength will help take the pressure off your hips and increase your comfort with each passing day.
So, what do you say? Are you interested in learning more about chiropractic care and how it can help you avoid the need for a hip replacement? Come on in to The Joint Chiropractic today and see for yourself why so many people have chosen this conservative route.
