What Can Cause Hip Pain?
Hip pain stems from many different issues and requires different treatment solutions to properly address the condition. Arthritis and bursitis are typically secondary conditions that often do not generate the pain.
Most of the time hip pain comes from a combination of one or more conditions that are not necessarily part of the hip.
Dr. Manteris has the advance training to screen what conditions can be treated within our office. If a professional referral is necessary for those that may not be appropriate for chiropractic care, he will coordinate on behalf of the patient.
These conditions include:
All of these can cause muscular dysfunction or imbalances at the hip joint itself that can add to the symptoms and cause problems in other parts of the body above or below the hip.
How is Hip Pain Diagnosed?
Orthopedic examination and imaging are essential for the diagnosis of hip pain. Allopathic doctors often prescribe cortisone injections for people with hip pain without a proper diagnosis. Therefore, the treatment doesn’t work. Also, it is expensive, and it is an increased risk for infection and other complications any time you are breaking the skin. Injections are a surgical procedure.
Also, undiagnosed or improperly diagnosed hip pain often lead to unnecessary hip replacement surgery.
We offer hip pain treatment based on a traditional, biomechanical approach to chiropractic care. We begin with a free consultation to obtain a medical history and discuss your symptoms and concerns. If Dr. Manteris determines chiropractic care can address your pain, he will then perform testing, a thorough examination and take x-rays (if necessary). Dr. Manteris then determines a diagnosis and creates a customized treatment plan designed to remedy the core issue.
Pain relief is important, but we don’t simply want to mask the pain, we want to implement long term solutions for better overall health. That requires proper diagnosis.
How is Hip Pain Treated with Chiropractic Care?
We use chiropractic adjustments in combination with stretching and restorative therapeutic exercises. This treatment protocol aims to strengthen the area, reduce inflammation and improve mobility, all with the goal of pain elimination.
We frequently receive referrals from medical doctors as chiropractic care provides pain management solutions that don’t include prescription drugs. With the growing opioid epidemic, patients need a non-invasive, non-habit forming pain solution to address the core issue.
Chiropractic care offers proven hip pain treatment to help you regain function and improve your quality of life. Dr. Manteris’s positive referrals, in combination with his training and experience, support the effectiveness of his chiropractic care.
