Hip Pain Q&A

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain may begin if you fall or suffer a sports injury, damaging the joint or spraining the ligaments. Oddly enough, you can have hip pain even if there’s nothing wrong with the joint. For example, a lower spine condition may cause referred pain you feel in your hip. 

Hip pain frequently arises because of the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Labral tears
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Overuse injuries
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Hamstring tendon tears

The hamstring tendons attach to your pelvis, causing hip pain after a tendon injury.

What symptoms accompany hip pain? 

The conditions responsible for hip pain cause various symptoms. You may experience any of the following problems:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Limited hip movement
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Hip weakness
  • Lower back pain
  • Difficulty moving your leg
  • Difficulty putting weight on the hip
  • Joint grinding or clicking sensations

You may also notice the pain worsens if you lay on the affected side or when you’re active.

How is hip pain treated?

Your Repair Recover Restore chiropractor determines the exact cause of your pain with a complete physical exam. They may need to order X-rays to rule out serious problems requiring medical attention.

For example, your chiropractor refers you for medical care if they discover a fracture, full-thickness ligament tear, or osteonecrosis (cartilage and bone death due to lack of blood) because these conditions require surgical repair.

However, the Repair Recover Restore team specializes in postoperative rehabilitation so you can continue your chiropractic care after hip surgery.

Most hip conditions improve with chiropractic care that reduces inflammation, promotes healing, strengthens the supporting muscles, and improves mobility.

Your Repair Recover Restore provider creates a personalized treatment plan drawing from many therapies, including:

  • Hip adjustments
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Physical therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Electrical stimulation

You compensate for hip pain by changing your movement to avoid placing pressure on the joint. As a result, your back, legs, knees, and neck take on more stress than usual, causing strain and pain beyond your hip.

Chiropractic care is especially beneficial for hip pain because your provider takes a whole-body approach, providing the therapy needed to restore balance and protect the rest of your body.

Don’t wait to seek help for hip pain. Continuing to use the joint causes further tissue damage. Call Repair Recover Restore or request an appointment online today.
