As chiropractors, we can help alleviate hip pain through a variety of techniques. They will start by conducting a thorough assessment of the hip and overall spinal health to determine the root cause of the pain. This may include physical examinations, X-rays, and other diagnostic tests. Once the source of the pain is identified, your chiropractor will develop a personalised treatment plan, which may include spinal adjustments, joint mobilisation, soft tissue therapy, and stretching exercises. These techniques can help improve the alignment and function of the hip joint, reduce inflammation, and alleviate muscle tension. By addressing the underlying issues contributing to the hip pain, chiropractic care can provide effective and long-lasting relief for patients.
Here at Head2Toe, our chiropractors hold extensive knowledge of human anatomy and biomechanics and can provide effective adjustments to address hip pain, improve range of motion, and promote overall hip health. By carefully assessing the individual’s condition and using tailored techniques, our chiropractors can help patients find relief from hip discomfort and prevent future issues.
Some of the adjustments that may be carried out can include high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) adjustment, where the chiropractor applies a quick, precise force to the hip joint to restore proper alignment and function. Another technique is the low-velocity, variable-amplitude (LVVA) adjustment, which involves a slower, gentler force to move the hip joint back into place gradually. The chiropractor may also use manual stretching and soft tissue massage to help loosen tight muscles and improve hip mobility. Additionally, they may recommend specific exercises or stretches to help strengthen the muscles around the hip and maintain its proper alignment.
