Your hips play an important role in supporting your body and giving you a range of motion. They keep you upright, support your weight, and help you sit, squat, walk, hop, and jump. When any part of your hip becomes damaged or injured, it can be debilitating. However, chiropractic care can help. At Circle Chiropractic Center, P.C. in Fairfax, VA, we provide natural treatment options for hip pain. Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will find the right techniques to help your body heal.

What Causes Hip Pain?

There are numerous causes of hip pain. The most common include:

  • Osteoarthritis: This inflammatory disease causes cartilage loss, leading to joint pain and stiffness.
  • Trauma: Sports injuries, impact, auto accidents, falls, and slips may cause injury to the hip’s muscles, tendons, and ligaments, causing pain.
  • Inflammation: If an injury or illness causes accumulation of blood or other fluids in the hip joint, this can cause pain and limited mobility. Also, conditions like bursitis cause inflammation on the outer sac of the hip, causing pain.
  • Muscle overuse: Physical exertion of the hips may cause inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and ligaments around the hip joint. This pain becomes worse progressively if you don’t seek medical intervention.

Sometimes, hip pain could be a result of referred pain. This is pain radiating from other body parts, especially from the lower back. Sometimes, hip pain may result from a hernia, or a weakened or torn abdominal wall.

How Is Hip Pain Diagnosed?

Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will look for the root cause of your pain and any underlying conditions. This includes a physical exam and questions about your medical history, lifestyle, and symptoms. After a diagnosis, we will create a customized treatment plan for you.

How Can I Get Hip Pain Relief?

This can include a combination of different techniques. We may use chiropractic adjustments. Realigning the body will alleviate any unnecessary pressure or tension on the hips.

After your body is aligned, our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, can also use laser therapy. If bursitis, arthritis, or other inflammatory diseases are the cause of your hip pain, laser therapy will provide relief.

Other chiropractic treatments include stretching exercises, which help improve your range of motion.
