Relieve Your Hip Pain

You can experience pain in the front of your hip, the sides or even the back around your buttocks. The source of the pain often determines how intense the pain is and where you feel it. Here are some of the things that can cause hip pain and some integrative solutions that can help relieve your hip pain and get you back to enjoying life.

The Cause of Hip Pain

Usually, hip pain isn’t the result of a single problem. More often than not, it has several origins, including:

  • Bursitis – A fluid-filled sac called the bursa surrounds your joints. It helps to reduce friction and cushion the joint, but when it becomes inflamed it results in bursitis.
  • Osteoarthritis – This is a degenerative process of the cartilage around your joints, often the result of normal wear and tear.
  • Overuse or muscle strain – If you are physically active or athletic, this is a common problem. Putting your body through the same movements for long periods can cause muscles in the hip to become bruised or torn.
  • Transient osteoporosis – This is a reversible but painful condition that impacts some pregnant women and middle-aged men.

FAQ

What is chiropractic?2019-01-02T00:50:44-05:00

Chiropractic care is the leading noninvasive approach to treating chronic spinal conditions, such as misalignments, injuries, and other musculoskeletal disorders, mainly through their connection to the nervous system.

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, your practitioner uses their hands to manually realign your spine or joints in other parts of your body. Chiropractic care is a drug-free practice which focuses on teaching you therapeutic exercises and stretches so that you can include them in your daily routine.

What conditions can chiropractic care address?2019-01-02T00:51:09-05:00

The Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine team are experts in treating any part of the body, from the most simple joint conditions to highly complex nervous system complications. Some of these conditions include:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Headaches
  • Whiplash
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Osteoarthritis
What happens during a chiropractic appointment?2019-01-03T23:22:24-05:00

During your chiropractic visit at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, your practitioner first identifies where your pain is located and discusses your overall well-being and lifestyle.

Your practitioner then assesses the condition of your spine and guides you through a series of exercises to determine your range of motion and pain level. From there, your practitioner can recommend various chiropractic treatments based on your individual needs.

At Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine, the method of choice is structural chiropractic care, which focuses on targeting the root of the misalignment, not necessarily targeting the misalignment itself.

Your practitioner may also perform the Thompson Drop Table technique, which requires an adjusting table with a pneumatically driven drop system. When your practitioner performs an adjustment, the table quickly lowers the section of the body corresponding to the spinal region being adjusted.

Adjustments are quick, specific movements that position your vertebrae into the correct alignment, releasing tension on your muscles and connective tissue.

The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine work collaboratively to understand the complexities of your spinal system. This means that you’ll speak with multiple team members and get various opinions so you can together make the decision that’s the most relevant to your needs.

What are the benefits of chiropractics?2019-01-02T00:52:53-05:00

Chiropractic care is a safe and drug-free treatment. Generally speaking, you’ll start feeling better almost immediately after the adjustment is made — and you’ll probably want to come back for more.

I started care because I had inside knee pain, and bone to bone on both inside knees. I had experienced these problems for 5 years. At its worse I had limited movement, I did not like even taking walks. I tried Cortizone shots, which lasted 9-10 months then had to do it again and again. The progress that I have made is that I’m now taking up to 2 walks a day. I have a lot less pain, and am not as grumpy. Great staff, they get you in as quick as possible, make your visit as positive as possible.

Jeff Wild

I started care because my shoulder has been hurting and wanted to get better and wanted my hand to get better. I had been experiencing these problems for 2 years. I had a stroke on the left side of my arm. These issues affected my life by having to work around the house with one arm. It put a stop to things I used to do with two arms. I had tried injections on my arm and lower back and physical therapy. I have noticed more strength and ability to move arm and shoulders up more than ever since starting care. The benefits that I have experienced is that I can work around the house more. I like everyone. They work as a team.

Donna Cannady

The reason that we began care is Torticollis and a flat spot on his head. We noticed the issue when he was a couple of weeks old. He developed a flat spot on his head and couldn’t turn his head in both directions. We didn’t try a helmet and wanted to avoid on. We also tried manually turning his head but it didn’t stretch enough. Since starting care, we have noticed that his head has rounded out and can turn head in both ways. He is now a great walker and has improved in general health. We love Dr. Mazique and fully recommend infant chiropractic care.

Jasper Poe (and Mom)

I came in for neck pain and neuropathy issues. I’ve experienced these symptoms for about 40 years. At the worst times, I couldn’t tie my shoes, didn’t want to get out of bed, and would sleep in a recliner if it was bad. Before coming here, I’ve had surgeries and steroid shots. The steroids didn’t last long. I have noticed that my neck pain has eased up since starting care. My right knee has improved. Supartz has helped a lot. The neuropathy in my knees has improved tremendously. I’ve been able to do things like mowing a lot. Much better without pain. The environment and staff have been great. They help me through a lot.

Kenneth Church

I started care for sciatic nerve pain down my left leg that was excruciating. I had trouble walking and sleeping. Before coming here, I had symptoms for about a week or so. At its worst, I was in agony. Very little sleep and I couldn’t function normally. I tried heat, cold packs, and stretching with little results. I now can do most everything since beginning care at the office. Still having trouble going up the stairs. I have noticed that the stretches have tightened my muscles. I feel so much better. Due to my being a Stage 4 metastatic cancer patience, the office staff has made every effort to be careful with the movements and chiropractic care.

Ina Stevens

I began care because I was experiencing a lot of body pains. I have had these problems since middle school. At its worst, it was terrible. I couldn’t sleep or move sometimes. I did try working out, but it only helped with some pains. The progress that I have made since beginning treatment at the office was that I noticed a lot more comfort at night. I can sleep better at night. Workouts are easier. The whole crew here is AMAZING! Anissa, Saune, Ben, Dave, and Kim are some of the most welcoming people – always have smiles and make each visit feel like home.
