Common Causes of Hip Pain
There are many different ways for hip pain to occur, and in many cases, a Chiropractor can help correct the misaligned joints without the need for surgery. Here are some of the most common causes of hip pain and how Chiropractic Care can help:
Hip pain can come from within the joint or from the ligaments surrounding the joint. If a hip injury or illness occurs, it could trigger inflammation within the joint filling with fluid or blood, which causes pain. Inflammation outside of the hip, bursitis, may also cause pain.
Overuse injuries such as routine daily activities that place too much stress on the hip can cause inflammation of the tendon, ligaments, and muscles surrounding the hip. This type of injury may develop over time gradually.
Being involved in a trauma, such as a car accident or slip and fall can cause fractures, dislocations of the hip or pelvis, broken bones, strained or sprained ligaments or muscles, or bruising. Trauma injuries also cause a significant amount of pain.
One of the most common causes of hip pain among adults is osteoarthritis. This disease causes progressive cartilage loss and degeneration of the joint. Chiropractic care can help slow the progression or worsening of the degeneration.
