Hip Pain Treatment and Chiropractic

by | Feb 28, 2022 | chiropractic, Hip Pain

Hip pain: What can it be? The main function of the pelvis is to keep us upright by supporting the weight of the body.

But it also has the function of making us walk, run, jump, and much more. Therefore, localized pain in this area can have very debilitating consequences for people who suffer from it.

The most common causes of hip pain are osteoarthritis and trauma to the bones or surrounding tissues (muscles, ligaments, etc.).

However, it may be related to other health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory pathologies such as:

Bursitis: inflammation of a liquid cushion between joints.

Piriformis syndrome: dysfunction of the piriformis muscle that inserts into the hip. In this case, it can give symptoms very similar to sciatica.

Cruralgia: pain in a thigh, usually due to nerve involvement (compression, demyelination, virus, etc.), but can also be due to muscle dysfunction (traumatic and joint).

Pubalgia: pain present in the pubic/ingle area, among other pathologies.


Chiropractic has a very significant effect in thetreatment of hip pain, although it must be kept in mind that the speed of the results will depend on the cause of the pain and the damage already produced.

A doctor of chiropractic will look for the source of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms.

Thus, after a thorough diagnosis, the most appropriate course of action will be determined.

The key to treatment is to gently move the hip joint through quick and precise chiropractic adjustments to correct the subluxations present.

In addition, chiropractic adjustments are intended to stretch the soft tissues and spread synovial fluid (the natural lubricant of the hip joint) over the entire joint surface.

At the Centre Chiropràctic de la Columna Vertebral, a team of qualified specialists will evaluate your ailments, proposing a personalized chiropractic treatment, which includes adjustments and advice to improve your daily life. The source of your pain and an effective treatment capable of controlling pain as well as preventing degeneration will be determined.

Chiropractic treatment, natural and painless, does not involve the use of drugs, so there is no room for problems due to possible side effects.
