Hip Pain Treatment in Sydney

The hip is the centre of our movement, so it’s no wonder that hip pain is one of the most common complaints we see at our clinic.

If you suffer from hip pain, a doctor of chiropractic can help you identify the source of your pain and develop a customised treatment plan to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.

Common Causes of Hip Pain

Inflammation

If the hip joint is the source of the hip pain, then it is the structure of the hip joint itself or the surrounding structures that are causing the problem. The hip joint contains limited space to move, so if an injury or illness causes inflammation, the space can fill up with fluid or blood causing the pain.  Bursitis is often the result of minor trauma or overuse.

Osteoarthritis and Inflammatory Diseases

Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of hip pain among older adults. This degenerative disease has no real “cure”, but there are ways to slow its progression and prevent symptoms from getting worse. Other inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, or inflammation of the spine (ankylosing spondylitis) can also cause hip pain.

Overuse Injuries

When your cartilage becomes inflamed, there is inflammation in the joints. If you regularly put weight on your hips or are doing any type of physical activity that places stress on your hip joints, you could be developing an arthritic condition.

How Chiropractic Can Help Hip Pain

After performing a detailed physical examination, your chiropractor can work to determine the source of your hip pain. Then they’ll create a personalized treatment plan that will focus on relieving any inflammation, relaxing any existing muscle spasms, strengthening your weakened muscles and improving the mobility of your hip.

Whether your hip pain is due to arthritis, bursitis, bony abnormalities such as Femoral Acetabular Impingement (FAI), or other causes, chiropractic adjustments can help.

Chiropractic adjustments can effectively relieve sciatica. A study compared the efficacy of chiropractic to surgery for sciatica and found that over 60% of chiropractic patients with severe sciatica avoided surgery.

Many cases studies have shown that chiropractic can alleviate pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction and Piriformis syndrome, which often results in hip pain.

For some patients with hip osteoarthritis (HOA), chiropractic care can be beneficial. In one study, 83% of these patients improved within nine visits to a chiropractor.
