Pain in the hip can come from the hip itself or from the Sacroiliac joint in the pelvis, which is located adjacent to the hip. The pelvis rests on the hips and forms the foundation of the spine. Pain in the hip joints can lead to an altered gait, which then causes pain elsewhere in the body.
A thorough evaluation of the hips and pelvis is necessary to determine the best treatment plan for the client.
Treatments for hip pain consist of specific chiropractic adjustment of the hip and lower back, myofascial release technique, mechanical traction and rehabilitation exercises.
