How A Knox County Chiropractic Office Helps Hip Pain Sufferers With Natural OptionsHow A Knox County Chiropractic Office Helps Hip Pain Sufferers With Natural Options

Hip pain is common - it can be caused by arthritis, misalignment of the hips or, worst of all, sciatica. Sciatica causes pain in the hips, buttocks and legs and can be caused by either lower back pain or piriformis syndrome (pinching of the sciatic nerve in the buttock). Sciatica can be incapacitating - it can render a person unable to stand up, walk, or sit for long periods. Hip pain is common in both people who sit for long time and in runners (in whom it can indicate an overuse injury or poor technique).

Chiropractic care can treat all causes of hip pain. If your hips are misaligned from sitting incorrectly, a good chiropractor can fix this - and give you advice on posture and exercises, as well as proper ergonomics to keep it from happening again. According to multiple studies, chiropractic care is a good solution for sciatica - better than medication - with 60% of patients able to avoid surgery.

Sciatica is caused by a nerve being pinched either in the spine or the buttocks, and your chiropractor can adjust things to free up the nerve and relieve the pain - often enough to allow you to return to mobility and your life. They treat the root cause of the problem - be it lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, isthmic spondylolisthesis, lumbar spina stenosis or sacroiliac joint dysfunction - these scary terms are all things that can go wrong in your lower back and result in pressure on the nerve.

Spinal arthritis can also contribute. Regardless of the cause, the chiropractor will work to clear it, and give you advice on how to avoid it from happening again. While they cannot always remedy disc problems, they can relieve the symptoms and help you stay active longer and possibly put off, or even avoid, surgery all together.

It is also effective for relieving pain from hip arthritis, especially in conjunction with stretches - chiropractic care does not end in the office, and you should expect to be given "homework" to ensure continued improvement.

Therapeutic exercise is a common "prescription." As previously mentioned, hip pain can also be caused by incorrect posture, especially when sitting for long periods. Crossing your legs at the office desk is generally a bad idea, as is sitting more on one hip than the other.

Both of these are bad habits which can be broken with work and time. Living pain free is not a quick solution, but doing it without prescription drugs or surgery is worth it. Surgery, in particular, can incapacitate you for an extended period of time, possibly make things worse and leave you with permanently restricted mobility. Talk with your Knox County Chiropractor to see what options are available to help you achieve wellness.

Our Knox County chiropractic office will not just treat you with adjustments, but may also include massage therapy, exercise, stretching, even nutrition. None of these options involve drugs (which can have unpleasant or have dangerous side effects) or surgery.
