Hip Problems

woman with hip painHip problems are common and a painful debilitating issue for many people. At the Adjusted For Life clinic, we see a variety of hip concerns ranging from strain and sprain injury to degenerative changes. The first step in treatment is proper evaluation and diagnosis to determine the specific tissue involved and whether the problem is inflammatory or degenerative in nature.

This includes a postural assessment, movement pattern evaluation, and specific orthopedic tests of the hip.

Once the source of the pain has been determined, treatment may include chiropractic adjustments to correct joint misalignment, laser treatment for inflammation, shockwave therapy for degenerative tendinopathy, and soft tissue release or stretching and strengthening exercises as needed.

Exercise plans are tailored to the specific needs of the patient to address underlying weakness or tightness impacting hip function.

At our clinic, we believe in a personalized approach to treatment and work with our patients to develop a plan that is specifically tailored to their needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chiropractic care can help improve the function of the hip joint and pelvis reducing stress on the surrounding tissues. Improved range of motion reduces inflammation, leading to reduced pain and improved function.

During a visit for hip problems, we will perform a thorough evaluation including a physical examination and may also use diagnostic imaging such as x-rays or refer for a diagnostic ultrasound to determine the root cause of the issue. Treatment may include spinal adjustments, manual manipulations of the hip, and other techniques to improve the function of the hip joint and surrounding tissues.
