Avoid expensive hip replacement surgery with Chiropractic treatment.
People who are experiencing hip pain all too often resort to dangerous and expensive surgery before attempting other more holistic and less evasive methods of treating the pain. In many instances, a series of chiropractic adjustments and resting are all that is needed to alleviate the pain and get you leading a normal life again as soon as possible. Whether you suffer from the common causes of hip pain ie, running, tennis, Osteoarthritis or sciatica, your hip pain can generally be effectively relieved through chiropractic treatment.
There are a number of reasons why you might be experiencing hip pain and it is important to analyze your lifestyle. The first and most obvious as if you participate in repetitive motion sports such as running or tennis. Such activities can cause wear and tear on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments and other connective and protective tissues that surround the hip joint. If you continue to run while experiencing hip pain you may be causing bone-on-bone contact and actually wearing down the hip joint. The same goes for any repetitive motion sports related joint pain in the knee or ankle. If you’re an athlete playing repetitive motion Sports and you experience hip knee or ankle pain stop and immediately and seek a full Chiropractic joint examination. Continuing to run or play through hip pain can cause permanent joint damage and you could be forced to undergo expensive and painful surgery. Instead, listen to your body and stop playing at the first sign of joint pain.
Sometimes hip pain can be relieved by treating the lower back at the point where the pain may be emanating. In the absence of an athletic lifestyle, most hip pain will come from compression of the nerves in the lower back and can be treated effectively with chiropractic. A Chiropractic hip pain examination will first x-ray the hip area in order to tell whether or not you have torn cartilage tendons or ligaments or muscles surrounding the hip. Most simple tears, while painful, do not require surgery. Rest and chiropractic treatments may be all that is necessary.
