Hip Pain

What are the common causes of hip pain?

Your hips are vulnerable to a variety of degenerative conditions, injuries, and alignment issues. Some of the common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures
  • Labral tears

You might also have hip pain from spinal issues like herniated discs that cause sciatica symptoms. 

Depending on the location of your hip condition and its severity, you might have pain in your buttocks, thighs, groin, or inside the joint itself. It can reduce your range of motion and make walking or transitioning between sitting and standing extremely uncomfortable. 

When should I talk to a chiropractor about hip pain?

The team at Medical Wellness Group helps many patients living with hip pain. You should call them if you have pain that persists for more than a couple of days. Mild injuries usually go away after a couple of days of rest, and if your pain doesn’t subside, it could be a sign of a more severe issue. 

How is hip pain treated?

Your provider at Medical Wellness Group begins with a comprehensive exam and consultation. They review your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms, and examine your spine, hips, and other joints for signs of alignment problems, inflammation, and deformity. They also use ultrasound to examine the inside of your joint and the surrounding tissue.

Your provider creates a customized treatment plan to relieve your pain and resolve the underlying problem causing it. Depending on your needs, your hip pain treatment program could include:

Chiropractic care

Medical Wellness Group offers chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue manipulation, stretching, and exercise therapy to restore the alignment of your hips, spine, and other nearby joints. These treatments reduce inflammation, improve joint mobility, and relax any related muscle spasms. 

Chiropractic care also includes diet and exercise recommendations to enhance your overall health. Your provider might create a program to help you lose weight and reduce pressure on your hips.

Ultrasound therapy

Your provider might include ultrasound therapy in your treatment plan for hip pain. The high-frequency sound waves boost circulation and stimulate your body’s ability to heal itself. 

Regenerative medicine

The team offers stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to boost and support your body’s natural healing response. Regenerative medicine can accelerate your healing process, reduce your pain, and address the underlying problem causing your hip pain. 

DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System

If your hip pain is a symptom of sciatica, spinal decompression can help repair issues like herniated or bulging discs that compress your sciatic nerve. The treatment also creates space in your spine and corrects alignment throughout your hips and spine.
