Hip pain can develop for a variety of reasons. The hip joint is made up of the large bone of the upper leg, called the “femur,” and the pelvic bone, or “ilium.” The most common causes of hip pain include joint and muscle stiffness and imbalance, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), bursitis, arthritis, and nerve irritation. At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of South Florida a thorough examination including orthopedic and neurologic testing as well as X-rays or MRI studies will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. Possible treatment options may include joint manipulation, physiotherapeutic procedures such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation therapy, and therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate the affected muscles. If your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a referral will be made to the proper specialist.
Chiropractic and hip pain
The cornerstone of chiropractic health treatment is spinal adjustments, also know as an “adjustment”. It may involve either gentle pressure, or a quick thrust to restore normal motion to joints that have become restricted. Hip joints much like the vertebra of the spine may become misaligned needing chiropractic treatment. Although most patients receive traditional manual (“hands-on”) adjustments, we also offer “low force” adjustments, performed with a highly advanced instrument. Some patients are familiar with these instrument adjustment techniques, which are the “activator”, “pro-adjustor”, or “impulse adjusting”. Although these low-force adjustments are gentle and precise. Experience has shown that instrument adjusting can be effective when used in combination with manual adjusting. In addition, instrument adjusting is an alternative to manual adjusting.
Hence with all of our treatment options, the doctor will be happy to discuss with you which adjusting techniques would be best for your condition. Modalities such as ultrasound, EMS, and cryotherapy are another way of treating hip pain after an accident. We offer alternative approaches to diagnosis and treatment that are often welcome solutions. Not only will they save on recovery time, but also on expense and trauma to the body. Our goal is to help our patients achieve a sense of physical and emotional well being.
