Hip Pain Treatment at Circle Chiropractic Center, PC
Hip pain is a common problem that can occur as a result of injury, aging, or certain medical conditions. Because the hip is such an important, weight-bearing joint, dysfunction can cause a severe impact on daily activities. Chiropractic methods can help to reduce hip pain symptoms. At Circle Chiropractic Center PC in Fairfax, VA, we can help individuals suffering from chronic hip discomfort.
Symptoms of Hip Pain
The symptoms of hip pain can be diverse and affect various parts of the joint and the body. You may experience back pain along with pain in the hip. Pain can affect either the outside of the hip or the inside area of the groin. Stiffness or impairment of mobility can occur. Nerve compression can cause numbness or tingling in the leg on one side of the body. Weakness in the leg on the affected side can occur. Sitting for long periods may aggravate the discomfort, or putting weight on the hip joint when walking may cause pain. Each of these symptoms can offer a clue as to where the dysfunction in the hip is occurring.
Causes of Hip Pain
Individuals may sustain injury to the hip due to car accidents, impact during sports, or repetitive motions during activities. Arthritis can affect the hip joint in individuals over 60. Other medical conditions such as fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis can cause hip pain. Compression of the sciatic nerve in the hip can cause pain, numbness, and poor function. Disc disorders in the spine can also lead to hip dysfunction and pain. These problems can be treated with chiropractic techniques to improve hip function.
Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain
Our chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, will analyze your medical history and current health to determine the best treatment plan for your needs. Manual adjustments are usually provided to re-align the spinal vertebrae, which is contributing to the problem. Stretching and corrective exercise can help to reduce pain and improve joint function. We may use other hands-on adjustments to improve circulation in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the joint to facilitate healing processes. We will work with you to create a customized treatment program unique to your needs for optimal hip pain relief.
