Amongst the many conditions we often see is hip pain. Hip pain can have different conditions, all causing an issue in the muscles or joints in the hip and pelvic region. Often, hip pain is associated with having lower back pain. It usually occurs in only one hip but can affect both sides of the body.

The Signs That You Need Help

Man with hip painYou may be wondering if your hip pain is going to go away on its own. There are some symptoms that arise that indicate you may need assistance, such as a “snapping hip.” This condition is caused by a snap of the iliopsoas tendon, the iliotibial band or a hip labral tear. You might hear a noise when you move your hip joint. Long-term irritation can result in inflammation and pain in your hip.

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is another condition associated with hip pain. Though uncommon, it is caused by previous joint trauma. It may be experienced by those who have been in a car accident and results in a sacroiliac joint that doesn’t move as it should or is immobile.

You’ll likely find that your hip pain worsens if you rotate or twist. Running or walking for long periods of time can result in overuse, increasing your pain levels. You should have your chiropractor check your footwear, as incorrect shoes are a contributing factor. Bad posture can also make your hip pain worse, particularly when sustained for longer periods.

How Chiropractic May Help You

Your chiropractor will focus on any fixated joints that surround your problematic hip. Alleviating this fixation may speed your body’s healing process. They may also utilise soft tissue therapy to further improve your condition. Your adjustments correct your body’s overall biomechanics, which may prevent further injury from occurring while reducing your symptoms.
