Common Causes of Hip Pain

The hip is a very complicated joint and is highly involved with both the pelvis and the low back. The hip itself is a ball and socket joint surrounded by a cartilage labrum, a layer of ligaments, and a large number of muscles. An issue in any of the layers within the hip or surrounding area can lead to hip pain. Some of the most common conditions that we see causing hip pain at Harris Chiropractic in both our Boise and Middleton locations are:

  • Bursitis

  • Hamstring tendinitis/tendinopathy

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)

  • Labrum tear

  • Lower back pain/sciatica

  • SI joint dysfunction

  • Groin/adductor tendinitis

  • Hip flexor strain

  • Hernia

  • Gluteal tendinopathy

How Do Sports Chiropractors Treat Hip Pain?

Due to the complexity of the hip joint and it’s proximity to other major support structures within the body, the initial diagnosis is essential to getting proper treatment and alleviation of pain. Once the root cause of your pain is identified, one or more of our many treatment options will be utilized to provide relief, as well as a long-term resolution to your issue. Typically, we find that a limited number of treatments combined with at home stretching and corrective exercises is effective in the resolution of your symptoms. However, if our sports chiropractic physician thinks that your pain is not related to a condition that is best treated in our office, you will be referred out for imaging and/or an assessment by another sports medicine provider from our extensive network of local doctors and healthcare professionals.

If you are dealing with hip pain and would like to make an appointment at our Boise or Middleton Chiropractic locations, or to discuss your condition a our sports chiropractor, please contact us or call our scheduling line at 208-424-5100.
