Depending on the cause of the hip pain, there is chiropractic therapy that can help.
Chiropractic adjustments can help with hip pain due to a variety of causes. They can help with sciatic pain in the hip and even for arthritis. Many people are able to avoid surgery by getting chiropractic adjustments to their hip. The whole idea is to get to the root problem of what is causing the hip pain. Making sure that the joint is aligned and that the soft tissue support is working correctly can go a long way in relieving excess stress.
If the pain in your hip is caused by pressure on the nerve where it emerges from the spine, spinal decompression can be of help. If the disc has herniated or bulged, the stretching of the spine that spinal decompression offers can help the disc go back into its original position. When it is not outside the bony structure, it isn't pressing on the nerve.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that uses tiny needles to clear up any blocks that exist in the invisible meridians that carry energy through the body. When energy is not able to flow freely, the body suffers. Today, acupuncture can be done with lasers, magnets, or electric pulses for those bothered by needles. Strategically placed pressure can help to relieve hip pain by getting energy flowing freely.
Massage therapy is something that can really help with hip pain. By getting the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the hip area to relax, it allows the chiropractic treatments to be more effective and recovery to be quicker.
Exercise therapy provides targeted exercises for you to perform at home. This helps to restore strength and flexion. Not every exercise has the same therapeutic results, so it is vital that you have the correct instructions about performing the exercise.
