How Chiropractic Helps to Overcome Hip Pain El Paso, TX.

Share

Although hip pain is most often associated with older individuals, in reality, it can affect people from all age groups. The hips are complex joints, which means there are many things that can go wrong in the hips—complications that can lead to pain and discomfort in the hip area. Whatever your age, when hip pain strikes you naturally want to know if there is a way to make it better or eliminate it altogether. Fortunately, chiropractic offers effective methods for addressing hip pain.

Causes of Hip Pain?

There are a surprising number of ways that hip pain can develop. It may show up at one or both sides of your hips, or on the front of your hip. It can also show up on the back of one or both hips. Where the pain develops can serve as an indicator of what is actually causing the pain. Your chiropractor will look closely at your condition to determine the cause, which may be attributed to the following:

Osteoarthritis

The cartilage that surrounds your joints can begin to wear down over time. The degeneration of cartilage around joints is known as osteoarthritis. Many times, osteoarthritis can develop due to normal wear and tear, which is why the condition is so often associated with aging. However, it is possible for younger individuals to develop osteoarthritis as well.

Transient Osteoarthritis

Both middle-aged men and pregnant women can suffer from transient osteoarthritis. It is a painful condition, but fortunately, it is reversible with proper treatment.

Bursitis

Bursa are sacs filled with fluid found in your joints, including the hips. The bursa are supposed to provide cushioning to your joints and lessen the friction created as your joints move. However, the bursa can become inflamed, which can lead to pain each time the joint is used.

Muscle Strain

There are a multitude of muscles that support the hips and make it possible for them to function. If one or more of those muscles is strained, it can lead to pain. Muscle strain is common in active individuals.

Overuse

Any joint and the soft tissues that support it can be overused. Overuse is common in individuals who perform repetitive motions, such as having to do the same motion hundreds of times a day for particular job activity.

Chiropractic Can Help

Studies have shown that chiropractic can increase mobility and lessen the pain when patients are experiencing hip pain. Treatment can be quite effective for many hip conditions, including all of those listed above. Since chiropractic steers clear of unnecessary medications and surgery, it is non-invasive and can be used regularly with minimal risk of side effects. Even if the condition you suffer from is not completely eliminated by treatment, it can make your symptoms much more tolerable by reducing pain and improving mobility.

Some common treatments for hip pain in chiropractic include:

Adjustments

By realigning your spine, adjustments can reduce or eliminate strain that may be placed on your hips. Regular adjustments can help ensure that your body maintains alignment and minimizes the amount of unnecessary strain might be impacting your hip area.

Exercises

Sometimes the best long-term solution to hip pain is to strengthen the muscles surrounding the hips. Your chiropractor can give you personalized exercises based on your body’s needs to help you get stronger so that your body supports your hips day in and day out.

Stretches

Hip pain can lead to loss of mobility. Appropriate stretches can help you regain some of that mobility.

Labrum Tear Hip Treatment El Paso, TX Chiropractor

Andrew Hutchinson turned into chiropractic care and Crossfit rehab after suffering a high ankle sprain and a hip labrum tear for which he moved through with surgery to repair it. After being bedridden for weeks so as to correctly recuperate, Andrew Hutchinson transitioned to chiropractic care and Crossfit rehab to regain his strength, freedom, and flexibility before returning to perform. Although he has suffered other sports accidents, Andrew Hutchinson continues to trust in chiropractic care and Crossfit rehab to keep his spine properly aligned and maintain overall health and wellbeing.

Labrum rips in athletes may occur from a single event or recurring trauma. Running may lead to labrum tears as a result of labrum being used more for weight-bearing and taking excessive forces while at the end-range motion of the leg. Sporting activities are likely causes, especially the ones that require frequent hip rotation or pivoting to some wealthy femur as in ballet or hockey. Continuous hip rotation places increased pressure on the capsular tissue and injury to the iliofemoral ligament. This then causes hip instability placing increased stress on the labrum and resulting in a cool labrum tear.


Hip Weakness

Muscle imbalances in the hip, such as tight hip flexors, can cause low back pain – or at least contribute to it. When the hip flexor muscles are too tight, it causes what is known as an anterior pelvic tilt. Hip flexors can become too tight if the person sits for extended periods of time or engages in activities like cycling and jogging. A chiropractor can guide you through exercises that will help release the tight muscles and stop the micro spams that occur as a result.

Treating your hip is successful when the focus is on restoring the balance and function of the entire body. This starts from the ground up with the feet along with a chiropractic examination that determines the root cause, which in turn helps in making an informed decision on a treatment plan. This instead of merely reducing the pain and inflammation in the irritated areas.
