While our hip joints are able to withstand high levels of stress, they are meant to only move in certain planes of motion. Unfortunately, we commonly move our bodies in other directions that can put too much strain on our hip joints and other joints. The result is usually pain and soft tissue injuries that do not heal for months. In other cases, hip pain may be caused by irritation to nerves in the lower back. When the hip joint is out of alignment, it can cause pain throughout the body. Sometimes, when a person experiences leg pain or back pain, the problem is really with the hip. Hip pain is sometimes caused by a spine that is out of alignment, or by inflammation of the sciatic nerve. Many people have been surprised to discover how much chiropractic care can help with hip and joint pain.
