Treatments for Hips & Legs
Chiropractic Health Center Treatments for Hips & Legs
Do you feel “old” or by chance frustrated with questioning the cause of your hip pain. Scared a hip replacement is in your future?
Lets figure out the problem and give you body a chance to heal naturally and prevent further trouble.
What Causes Hip Pain?
Hip pain can be caused by an unleveling of the pelvis, leg length imbalance, low back subluxations, flat feet, excessively arched feet, or improper gait. Congruently untreated hip pain can lead to lower back pain, knee and foot pain, and over long term a break down in the joint tissues in the hip, knees, feet, and low back areas. Hip pain typically leads to improper movement of the hip joint causing destruction of the joint and the probability of impending joint replacement
What is the Treatment for Hip Pain?
Assessment by a Doctor of Chiropractic health center will include a thorough examination of joint movement including orthopedic tests, and x-rays (if needed) to determine the probable cause of hip pain. Upon completion of the exam insightful information will be given on the cause of pain and the recommended treatment. These recommendations will work to restore proper movement of the hip joint preventing further overstress to the knees, feet, and low back. Following the recommendations and receiving treatment results in a relief of pain and will prevent future episodes of pain.
Leg & KNEE Pain
The knee joint takes on a lot of stress every day. It is a stable joint that is continuously being bombarded with micro traumas. Over time the accumulation of these daily micro traumas can lead to knee pain and discomfort.
The knee is a joint that is located in the middle of the lower extremity so knee pain can be caused by improper foot support or low back and pelvic dysfunction. That is why our team will evaluate the entire lower extremity as well as the pelvis and low back. A knee problem can also affect the joints in other areas of the body and it is important to address these changes as well.
When should I get chiropractic or acupuncture treatment?
It’s best to schedule an appointment before pain occurs. If pain is limiting your day-to-day or sporting activities.
You have been given painkillers or taken anti-inflammatories and been told to rest with no long-term improvement.
You have been told you have arthritis and there is nothing that can be done.
