Your hips enable you to walk, run, stand upright, bear weight, and plenty more. So pain in your hip area can have debilitating life side effects. Thankfully, chiropractic care can help this pain. A chiropractor at Lincoln Chiropractic Center in Nebraska can perform an adjustment at the source of the pain to improve all of your symptoms.
The hips are prone to developing any number of musculoskeletal problems that can create chronic pain. Here are a few of the benefits of seeking chiropractic hip adjustments:
- Improves Pelvic Alignment: When the pelvis is out of alignment, the body becomes unstable; this can result in hip pain and other problems. Your chiropractor can determine if your pelvis is misaligned by having you stand with your knees a foot apart, bending them, them placing either a pillow or foam block between them. You will be required to squeeze the object with your knees, and if you feel a “click” sensation, your hips are out of alignment.
- Targets Root Of The Pain: A chiropractic adjustment can also be used to help with sciatica, osteoarthritis, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and other disorders that can cause “referred” hip pain. The adjustment will seek to align the part of the body that is causing nerve irritation that can then be felt in the hip and other areas of the body.
- Relieves Low Back Pain & Neck Pain: Chiropractic hips adjustments are not just for your back. They have been shown to provide faster results for chronic back pain than general practitioner care, physiotherapy, and manual therapy. On average, chiropractic care patients see improvements in just one month, and they tend to have higher satisfaction reports.
