A growing portion of the population is suffering from chronic hip and back pain. Shifted hips stem from a variety of underlying issues, including sedentary lifestyles causing anterior pelvic shifts, overuse due to sports or labor, arthritis, osteoporosis, pinched nerves, and more.
Patients with hip pain are often told they need surgery to fix their problems. However, chiropractic is a much more conservative and non-invasive approach to treating pain in these areas. At Ideal Spine, we provide chiropractors with the expertise to treat hip pain using chiropractic adjustments, realignment, and massage.
Chiropractors must use careful, varied techniques when approaching shifted hip and hip pain due to the complex nature of the area. When done properly, these techniques may alleviate the patient’s symptoms without the need for pain medications or surgery.
The problem with shifted hips
When hips fall out of alignment, they have the potential to cause widespread problems in the body. Because they support much of the body’s weight and facilitate extensive movement, the hips must be balanced to allow for proper mobility without compensation from other body parts, including the lower back and legs.
Shifted hips often cause pain in the lower back, hips, and legs by altering the gait and range of motion of these areas. Hip problems may also cause symptoms of sciatica.
The hip joints, pelvic bones, muscles, and ligaments may all contribute to hip shifting and pain.
Chiropractic for hip pain
Persistent hip pain is often met with the recommendation for hip surgery by doctors. But surgery is invasive, expensive, and difficult to recover from. People with shifted hips should seek non-invasive treatment options first to minimize their risks.
Chiropractic is a great first option for people suffering from hip pain and other problems related to misaligned hips. It’s conservative, non-invasive, and gradual.
Through Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) techniques focused on rebalancing the body, chiropractors may help reposition the hips. Manual manipulation and mobilization therapy may improve flexibility, strength, and positioning of the hips to promote balance and realignment.
A combination of adjustments to the hip joints and joints in the spine, as well as massage therapies to loosen tight muscles that may cause tightness and shifted hips, may help bring the body back into balance. Once the hips are realigned and can move freely as intended, the problems of hip pain may be resolved.
Complex remedies for a serious condition
Working on shifted hips is not quite as simple as working on the lumbar spine. There are many joints, muscles, and other tissue structures to consider during hip realignment. The treatment process may be less straightforward and require more time.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, chiropractors should offer their patients ways to improve hip mobility at home. This includes stretches, postures, and exercises that help prevent the hips from shifting out of alignment.
Ideal Spine emphasizes treating pain at its source, which is often rooted in the way biomechanical systems relate to each other. By using chiropractic techniques to realign the spine and hips, the body may be able to move more freely and remain balanced and strong.
