keep-your-hip-healthy-and-pain-free-gold-coast-chiropractorThe early signs are subtle. They could be soreness, a twinge, or an ache. But if these signs appear in your hip and go untreated they can lead to degeneration, reduced performance, and even surgery.

The good news is that at Hinterland Chiropractic we are committed to partnering with you to immediately diagnose and treat hip pain so that it cannot become a bigger problem.

Causes of Hip Pain

Hip pain can come from within the hip joint or from the structures around it and can be traumatic (caused by injury) or non-traumatic (not related to injury).

The possible causes of hip pan include sciatica and other nerve inflammations or damage, contusions, overuse, bursitis, fractures, or arthritis. It can also be caused by other diseases including Lyme Disease, fibromyalgia, and arthritis of all different types.

The varied causes of hip pain mean that the treatments of it are also varied. At Hinterland Chiropractic our highly trained staff can help diagnose the cause of hip pain and appropriate treatments.

Symptoms of Hip Pain

Hip pain often begins small with stiffness and occasional pain. Sometimes there is reduced mobility or muscle weakness. Sufferers might limp or have their feet turn outwards. These symptoms can be worse in cold weather or after heavy activity. Simple activities such as putting on socks or kneeling down can become difficult or painful.

Hip damage can also cause symptoms in the thigh and knee and is easy to diagnose incorrectly. In some cases simple rest will decrease pain temporarily, but if the problem is serious the pain will recur.

Early treatment of hip pain increases the chance that treatment can help and surgery can be avoided.

Possible Treatments

As causes of hip pain vary, so do treatments:

  • Diet and exercise
  • Painkillers
  • Therapy such as acupuncture, massage, heat, and supplements
  • Steroid injection
  • Physical Therapy
  • Surgery

At Hinterland Chiropractic our goal is to help you avoid invasive or expensive non-holistic treatments.

The Role of Chiropractic

Studies have repeatedly shown that chiropractic treatment can be effective in treating hip pain. One study showed that chiropractic treatment helped 60% of patients treated for sciatica to avoid surgery. Another demonstrated that 83% of patients with osteoarthritis of the hip benefitted from chiropractic treatment.
