Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain may occur because of: 

  • Broken bones: femoral neck and intertrochanteric fractures
  • Osteoarthritis: cartilage breakdown at the ends of bones
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: destruction of the joint lining
  • Labral tear: damage in the ring of cartilage around the hip socket
  • Bursitis: inflammation in the small sacs between joints
  • Osteonecrosis: lack of blood supply to the hip bone
  • Infections: bone or joint infections 
  • Iliotibial band syndrome: tendon inflammation
  • Hip impingement syndrome: the top of the thigh bone and hip socket don’t fit properly
  • Muscle pulls: groin strain

You’re more vulnerable to hip pain if you’re older, struggling with your weight, female, have family members with osteoarthritis, or had a prior hip injury. 

When do I need medical care for hip pain? 

Hip pain, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, climbing stairs, or standing are all treatable issues and all good reasons to seek medical care. If you’re experiencing these types of problems frequently, they’re probably preventing you from living life the way you’d like, so it’s best to contact the office as soon as possible.

Many people with hip pain dread being told they need invasive treatments like hip injections or joint replacement. You need not worry at Dabbs Rehab Center of MD: they take the natural approach. They have a whole group of leading pain management experts from across multiple medical disciplines to guide your drug- and surgery-free recovery. 

How is hip pain treated?

Hip pain treatment depends on the injury or medical condition causing the pain, but generally, you’ll have both chiropractic care and physical therapy. 

Physical therapy

Physical therapy uses innovative natural techniques such as electrical stimulation, dry needling, and massage for immediate pain relief. Strengthening and flexibility exercises improve your hip joint range of motion and reduce the chance of future pain. 

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care generally includes hands-on joint manipulations along with spinal rebalancing. The office also offers specialized soft tissue mobilization techniques to correct problems within muscles and other tissues.

Additionally, Dabbs Rehab Center of MD offers naturopathic and functional medicine. Both approaches consider your whole-body needs and help hone and maintain optimal health using natural techniques like a healthy diet and supplements.
