Do you have hip pain?
If you do, I want you to realize something.
You could end up like this person, and hopefully… you want to do whatever it takes to AVOID this happening to you or someone you care about.
You may just have hip pain right now, but if you don’t take care of it NOW, there’s a good chance that you can end up having to use a walker, a scooter, or a cane.
Your hips serve innumerable functions for your body; 1. they keep you upright, 2. allow you to bear weight, and 3. walk smoothly, run, jump, kick, play.
Since your hips are engaged in nearly every move you make, pain in this area of your body can have debilitating consequences for you (if you have hip pain.) Although hip pain is frequently the result of osteoarthritis or some type of injury, it can also be a sign of other health conditions. If you’ll mention that to me, I’ll examine you and find out if I can help you identify the source of your hip pain and develop a tailored treatment plan just for you.
One of the Most Common Causes of Hip Pain
Inflammation: Hip pain can derive from the structures within the hip joint or from the structures and ligaments surrounding the inflammed joint. Within the joint itself, there is limited space for the femoral head to move in the socket of the acetabulum. If an injury, misalignment, psoas muscle problem, or illness in your joint … can trigger inflammation, and then the joint space can become easily filled with fluid, causing you pain.
Inflammation of the sac outside of the hip, the bursitis, can also be the source of pain. Bursitis is often the result of minor trauma or overuse. If you want to get checked, call the office today. We’re here to help.
