Hip Pain

The hip joint is a ball and socket type joint that allows the hip to move in many different directions. The hip joint is made up of the femur bone and socket in the pelvis bones. There are many muscles and tendons that move the hip joint and many ligaments that hold the bones together. Finally, there is a cartilage cap around the ball and socket that cushion the bones and allow smooth motion with little friction.

Symptoms of hip pain include pain in the joint, thigh, groin, and buttocks. Hip pain can be caused by injury and inflammation of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, hip arthritis, dislocation, fracture, nerve entrapment, and bursitis. Causes of hip problems include accident or trauma, overuse injury, sports injury, wear and tear on the cartilage, and congenital problems.

Labrum Tears

The labrum is the cartilage that attached to the socket of the hip joint. It helps to stabilize the joint and allow fluid motion with little friction. A tear of the labrum can occur from an injury, overuse or a congenital hip problem. Symptoms of a labrum tear include localized pain in the hip joint, pain in the buttocks or upper leg, feeling catching or clicking of the leg with hip range of motion or the feeling of the joint locking up.

Hip pain and swelling can persist long after the, initial injuries have healed. Chiropractic care and physical therapy for labrum tears can alleviate these chronic symptoms by manipulation of the joint, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, and range of motion exercises. Acupuncture also works to alleviate the pain associated with labrum tears.

Piriformis Syndrome

The piriformis is a muscle behind the hip joint that helps to rotate the hip. It is very close to, and crosses the sciatic nerve. Piriformis syndrome is inflammation of the piriformis that causes pressure on the sciatic nerve. Symptoms of piriformis syndrome include numbness and tingling in the leg and foot, pain in the hip joint, pain in the buttocks, weakness of the leg, limp and difficulty walking and sitting.

Hip pain and swelling can persist long after the, initial injuries have healed. Chiropractic care and physical therapy for piriformis syndrome can alleviate these chronic symptoms by manipulation of the joint, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, and range of motion exercises. Acupuncture also works to alleviate the pain associated with piriformis syndrome.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

The sacroiliac joint, often called the SI joint, connects the pelvis to the spine on both sides. This joint has a very small range of motion; however, it has an important function to connect your spine to your legs and hips. Sacroiliac pain can be caused by injury, overuse, wear and tear over time, heavy lifting, pregnancy, and abnormal posture. Symptoms of sacroiliac joint pain include localized pain in the lower back and buttocks, pain in the upper leg, pain in the groin and belly, difficulty in walking or standing and abnormal gait.

Chiropractic care and physical therapy for sacroiliac joint dysfunction can alleviate these chronic symptoms by manipulation of the joint, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, and range of motion exercises. Acupuncture also works to alleviate the pain associated with sacroiliac joint dysfunction.
