Your hip is made up of two bones: the pelvis and the femur. As the largest ball and socket joint in your body, it is designed to withstand repeated motions and wear and tear. However, despite its durability, the hip joint is a part of the body that is prone to having problems, whether it’s from injury or simply the result of aging. With all the repeated motions we make, your hip’s cartilage can wear down over time, or become damaged from tendons or muscles being overused.

- Pain originating in other parts of the body, but felt in the hip (“referred pain”)
How Chiropractic Treatment can Help
The most important element of hip pain is identifying where the source of pain is originating from. Fortunately, Dr. Bagley has years of experience treating those suffering from hip pain! She will work with you to do a careful examination, and then prescribe a personalized treatment plan for you. This may include chiropractic adjustments, exercise therapy, posture advice, stretching, or massage.
One of the most common causes of hip pain is sciatica, which affects the hip and lower back. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments have been shown to relieve these symptoms, which is why we are such firm believers in providing natural treatment. Because hip pain can also spread to other locations, as well as prevent mobility, it is important to reach out to us as soon as you can so we can get you on the road to recovery.
