Our San Diego chiropractor is a hip pain treatment specialist who can successfully help you get relief and resume an active lifestyle.
Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain and Injury Relief
Before treatment, you need a full diagnosis of the reasons behind your hip pain or injury. Once our chiropractor knows why you hurt, he can recommend a plan for immediate relief and long-term healing. Often, a combination of chiropractic care, therapeutic exercise, spinal decompression, massage and/or laser therapy can get you comfortably walking, swinging, bending and lifting again. Some of the most common causes of hip pain include:
- Herniated or bulging discs in the spine – Injured discs can pinch nerves affecting the sensation and movement of the hip joint. A combination of chiropractic care and spinal decompression on our DRX9000 table can be extremely effective at providing pain relief and healing for this type of hip pain.
- Joint inflammation and deterioration – Osteoarthritis from years of stress on the ball joint of the hip is another common cause of pain. In addition to correcting posture and alignment through chiropractic care to relieve stress from the hip joint, chiropractor Dr. Herfindahl’s patients have experienced great arthritis pain relief from a series of cold laser therapy treatments to the affected area. Cold laser therapy regenerates healthy joint tissues and relieves pain at the cellular level.
- Posture and gait problems – Poor posture and incorrect work out or lifting ergonomics can cause repeated stress and imbalance on the body. These imbalances can start in the spine and stretch all the way down to the hips – and even into the knees and ankles. Dr. Herfindahl can use manual or instrument chiropractic adjusting to correct alignment.
- Injuries like sprains and strains – Active people can also sustain hip injury pain from sprains and strains. A combination of chiropractic care for realignment, massage therapy and cold laser therapy can be very effective for healing and relief.
