Hip Pain FAQs

Hip pain is one of the most common conditions people suffer from. Whether it is hip joint pain or a chronic condition, it is important to seek treatment. At Circle Chiropractic Center, P.C. in Fairfax, VA, we offer hip pain relief. Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, can help you learn more about your body and why you have hip pain. Here are some commonly asked questions about hip pain.


Why Do Some People Have Hip Pain?

Hip pain is common because the hips are one of the largest parts of the body. Your hip endures a lot of stress because it helps hold the torso upright. Joints are also susceptible to injury no matter where they are located. This can lead to a serious injury.

What Are the Most Common Causes of Hip Pain?

Hip pain has many causes. Some people have serious pain due to rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Hip pain can also be caused by health conditions, like hip dysplasia. In other situations, pain is caused by direct physical trauma to the hip, perhaps due to an assault or car accident.

Muscle injuries also cause hip pain, such as tearing or straining of the tendon, often as a result of repetitive use. You may be at higher risk for these issues if you have a condition like disc herniation, infection, or spinal stenosis.

What Symptoms Come with Hip Pain?

Whether you experience pain in one or both hips, you may also struggle to walk. You might notice a popping sound, and the feeling can be a deep ache or a sharp pain.

How Is Hip Pain Diagnosed?

A variety of techniques can be used to diagnose the cause of hip pain. Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will perform a physical exam of the area. We will look at your medical history and symptoms to find the root cause of your pain.

How Can Hip Pain Be Treated?

Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will create a customized treatment plan for you. This can include adjustments to alleviate pressure on the hip joint. We also offer decompression therapy, which will reduce inflammation and promote healing in the joint. Dr. Frey will give you rehabilitation exercises to improve your range of motion and help with your recovery.
