Hip pain treatment
There are many different conditions within the hip joint that could eventually lead to hip pain treatment. There is also a variety of ways for hip pain to develop. 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 & Rehabilitation of Miami Lakes our Chiropractor will perform an evaluating of the hip before treatment. A thorough examination with test that include Range of motion, orthopedic, and neurological.Diagnostic testing is another useful tool in diagnosing hip injuries such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI studies.
Possible treatment options may include a combination of the following: joint manipulation, physiotherapy (such as ultrasound or electrical muscle stimulation therapy), and therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate the affected muscles. We also offer Massage therapy and therapeutic stretches that will treat the surround muscle and tissues. In certain circumstances your hip injury may be co-managed with other medical professionals. If your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a referral will be made to the proper specialist.
The cornerstone of chiropractic hip pain 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.
