Hip pain treatment
Hip pain can develop from a variety of reasons. The hip joint is made up of the large bone of the upper leg, called the “femur,” and the pelvic bone, or “ilium.” The most common causes of hip pain include joint and muscle stiffness and imbalance, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), bursitis, arthritis, and nerve irritation. At Chiropractic and Rehabilitation of Miami Lakes a thorough examination including orthopedic and neurologic testing is performed. If necessary, we will prescribe X-rays or MRI studies to determine your exact diagnosis. We will use this information to create a treatment plan for your specific injury. Possible treatment options may include physiotherapy such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation therapy. Another treatment option are therapeutic stretches and exercise to rehabilitate the affected muscles.
Chiropractic for hip pain
The cornerstone of chiropractic health treatment is spinal adjustments, also know as the “adjustment”. It may involve either gentle pressure, or a quick thrust to restore normal motion to joints that have become restricted. Hip joints much like the vertebra of the spine may become misaligned needing chiropractic treatment. Although most patients receive traditional manual (“hands-on”) adjustments, we also offer “low force” adjustments, performed with a highly advanced instrument. Some patients are familiar with these instrument adjustment techniques, which are the “activator”, “pro-adjustor”, or “impulse adjusting”. These low-force adjustments are gentle but precise. Experience has shown that instrument adjusting can be effective when used in combination with manual adjusting. In addition, instrument adjusting is an alternative to manual adjusting.
Hence with all of our treatment options, the doctor will be happy to discuss with you which adjusting techniques would be best for your condition. Modalities such as ultrasound, EMS, and cryotherapy are another way of treating hip pain after an accident. we want to help our patients achieve a sense of physical and emotional well being.
