How to relieve hip joint pain? Chiropractic care is an effective way to relieve hip joint pain. Whether it is caused by spinal misalignment, a degenerative joint issue or an acute injury, chiropractic adjustments can restore balance to your musculoskeletal system and provide lasting pain relief. When you make an appointment at our clinic, we will assess your situation and come up with a customized treatment plan that may include chiropractic care, massage therapy, spinal decompression and physical therapy.
Hip Joint Pain Relief
If you suffer from chronic hip pain and looking for alternative treatments to hip replacement surgery, our doctor provides safe and effective non-surgical, drug-free options to combat pain and help you avoid complicated surgical procedures and the lengthy downtime that goes along with them.
We will zero in on the root cause of the pain in your hips and work with you to determine the most suitable approach for all-natural relief of your symptoms.
After a thorough assessment of your unique condition, gentle chiropractic adjustments are recommended to aid your body to recover its natural alignment. As your vertebrae are joints are re-aligned, inflammation will subside and you can expect pain relief in your hips.
Hip Pain Treatment
Chiropractic care consists of spinal adjustments, stretching, rehabilitation, and physical therapeutic applications such as icing and heating and muscle stimulation administered by a chiropractor.
The fact that your central nervous system is part of your spinal column means even small misalignments can create hip pain that makes it difficult to walk or even sit for long periods. With chiropractic treatment, the doctor will relieve pressure on your joints, tissue and bones using high-velocity manual thrusts to release carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen from your joints. This release of gas is responsible for the audible crack you hear during chiropractic adjustments.
We also offer acupuncture, spinal decompression, physical therapy, and massage therapy as part of an overall treatment program to make your hips feel better and restore your quality of life.
