There is a close interaction between the functions of the pelvis and features of the hip joints. Crooked or stiff pelvis can lead to reduced mobility of the hip joints and visa versa. So it’s important to examine for both areas to find the true source of the complaint. A crooked or stiff pelvis is far more common than most people think, and is mainly due to overloading or minor trauma and accidents. When the pelvis is not functioning normally, this can cause pain in the back, buttocks, groin, hips and radiate into the legs.
Reduced mobility in the hip joints is often linked with inflammation in the surrounding muscles and tendons. This causes usually pain locally around the hip joint and on the inside or outside of the thigh. Our chiropractors can help with correcting both pelvic and hip joints by where we seek to restore normal function and mobility.
Examination of a chiropractor for your hip pain
Our chiropractors will initially examine you to rule out serious causes of pain. First, by having an in-depth conversation with the patient then with a physical examination. If needed, the chiropractor will refer you to have an MRI and/or X-ray examination. When surveys are done the chiropractor will identify the location and cause of the pain, then put a correct diagnosis.
