A chiropractor can help someone who is suffering from pain in their hips. Hip pain can make it difficult to do normal daily activities like walk, run, bend down to pick something up and sit in a chair comfortably. Unfortunately, this tends to be a relatively common problem for people, especially as they age. Fortunately, our all natural chiropractic treatments can help.
WHY PATIENTS VISIT A CHIROPRACTOR
There are many doctors who can treat hip pain so the question comes down to why would a patient visit our office as opposed to visiting another physician. Primarily, the patients that visit us do so because they are looking for an all natural solution.
Chiropractic care involves aligning the body to promote natural healing. We do not prescribe medication or make recommendations for invasive procedures or surgeries. This is hugely advantageous for anyone who does not want to put anything foreign in their body or to take on the risks associated with invasive procedures.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN AUGMENT OTHER TREATMENTS AS WELL
Even if some patients visit our office exclusively, we also help patients who are working with a general physician or dermatologist, for example. Upon a patient’s request, we can even speak with their general physician or obtain medical records so that we can view their health history.
HIP PROBLEMS WE CAN TREAT
The three most common hip problems we treat are:
1. Trauma due to an accident
Patients who are in a car accident or have suffered an injury at work or home often visit us for help. While here, we can treat any injury to the back, neck, shoulders, arms and hips that is related to the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractic care often helps to promote healing and speed up recovery after this type of trauma.
2. Hip pain caused by the sciatic nerve
The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back through the buttocks and down to the leg. If it becomes pinched or has pressure on it, it is likely that a patient will suffer from significant pain. This can be a dull and consistent pain or a shooting stabbing one. Very often people find it difficult to sleep due to this pain. During the day it can also make it difficult to sit, stand or walk about. We can relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and reduce sciatica pain accordingly.
3. Arthritis and osteoarthritis
As a chiropractor, we can help to improve the mobility of our patients by reducing swelling and inflammation. This is especially beneficial for anyone who is suffering from arthritis.
RESULTS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Patients who received treatment from a chiropractor typically find that their pain and discomfort is significantly reduced. Mobility is simultaneously increased. Some patients only need to visit us once or twice while others require weekly chiropractic appointments. We can make a recommendation regarding the frequency and duration of the treatment after conducting an initial examination.
We invite anyone who is suffering from hip pain to call our office and schedule an appointment for help today.
