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?2019-01-02T00:50:44-04:00

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?2019-01-02T00:51:09-04:00

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?2019-01-03T23:22:24-04:00

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?2019-01-02T00:52:53-04:00

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.
