Hip Pain Treatment
You might be surprised to learn that many people in the United States suffer with hip pain, and it can be difficult to live with. However, because it is somewhat common, it is important to not dismiss hip pain and great treatments that are available to treat the pain and get you back to living a full life. The hips are a major joint in the body and hip problems can make simple tasks like walking, running, or sitting very painful.

That's why we offer help from a chiropractor in Greenville, SC, who can help find the root cause of your hip pain and initiate treatment. Our chiropractic & Class IV laser treatments from a chiropractor on our team is aimed toward helping you feel better, live your life the way it was before pain, and ensuring the hip pain does not return.
What Causes Hip Pain?
The hips are one of the largest muscle groups and joints in the body. The hip sits on either side of the torso right above the leg, and this is a very active area for people that walk, run, play sports, and more. That's why the hip is also prone to wear and tear, such as due to osteoarthritis.
Hip pain can also be caused by pulled muscles in the area, which can occur due to a sports injury, personal injury, or even an auto accident.
In addition, hip pain can also be caused by radiating pain coming from the heel of the foot, such as in plantar fasciitis, or from lower back pain. Indeed, the hip is almost midway down the body, so issues with both the upper and lower body can cause radiating pain that is difficult to pinpoint without help from a professional.
What Can a Chiropractor Do For Hip Pain?
Hip pain can be treated by chiropractic adjustments, which can help realign the spine and take pressure off the hip and the surrounding muscles, nerves, and skeletal area.
In addition, a chiropractor on our team can utilize our state of the art Class IV robotic laser therapy to target the pain and inflammation associated with many hip conditions.
Finally, a chiropractor on our team can conduct treatment for your hip pain, which can include corrective exercises to help restore mobility and strengthen the muscles around the hips. Stretches, massages, and therapeutic treatments like trigger point therapy can also help specific sore and painful areas and encourage their healing.
