Hip & Pelvic problems

Hip pain is pain arising from the anatomical region of the hip. It can be a result of arthritis, strains of the muscles around the hip, joint movement or referred pain from the spine and is commonly confused with pelvic pain. Such pain may refer into the groin or into the thigh and knee. Chiropractors address joint pain using a package of care that may include manual therapies, acupuncture, massage, cryotherapy, exercise prescription and onward referral when indicated.

Pelvic pain may be caused by lifting and carrying incorrectly, poor posture or compression of the sciatic nerve and can lead to pain in the low back, buttocks, hips, lower abdomen, groin and thighs. Due to the fact that back problems can sometimes refer the spine will always be examined and assessed.

Leg pain can be caused by referred pain from the low back or pelvic structures. Leg pain may also be affected by the muscles around or the hip, knee or ankle joints themselves.
