Hip pain can make it difficult to function. It can hurt to do daily activities like walking and sitting. The conservative care we offer is a great first option for patients to consider when suffering from hip problems. Many benefits can come from seeking chiropractic treatment first.
Many causes of hip pain are biomechanical. New Life Medical Centers is trained in the manual medicine approach that looks at the following assessments to better diagnose your hip pain:
- Manual therapies such as mobilization, manipulation and therapeutic exercises
- Orthopedic tests
- Ergonomic training
In many cases, hip pain can be caused by osteoarthritis or as a result from an injury. For the first time in history, the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has recommended that manual therapy, if added to exercise or rehabilitation, may further benefit hip or knee osteoarthritis.
We offer this type of specialized treatment plan and can prevent or delay surgery while benefiting hip or knee pain related to osteoarthritis.
