Hip Alignment

Pain due to misaligned hips can greatly affect a person’s quality of life, regardless of age. Any kind of pain, acute or chronic, restricts patients from achieving their full potential. For instance, misaligned hips limit your chance of engaging in athletic activities and feeling comfortable with yourself. Besides the discomfort associated with this condition, it also increases the risk of developing further injuries.

Several risk factors can lead to a misaligned hip. Some of these include:

  • Road accidents
  • Sports-related injury
  • Hip fractures
  • Prolonged sitting
  • Bad workout habits
  • Underlying conditions
  • Obesity
  • Old age
  • Genetics

Unfortunate circumstances may lead to vehicular and work accidents, which also heighten the risk for misaligned hips due to slamming into the dashboard. Moreover, people with underlying diseases, such as scoliosis and arthritis, are more prone to experience this musculoskeletal disorder. Since lifestyle and diet choices are integral to every person’s well-being, unhealthy practices and conditions like obesity and sedentary behavior places extreme pressure on your hips, causing pain and discomfort.

You can put an end to enduring the excruciating pain in your hip area with the help of Life Clinic. We specialize in non-invasive chiropractic procedures that help restore, maintain, and optimize daily function. We also offer physical and manual therapy to assist in your rehabilitation.

Before presenting a personalized treatment plan, our specialists will first assess your situation by administering various medical tests. After that, we will provide you with a specialized program that can improve your condition. Book a session with us today and allow us to be your partners towards recovery.

Am I a suitable candidate for a hip alignment procedure?

Since the hips support your body during a standing position or running posture, it’s easy to notice misaligned hips. You can simply look at the mirror and check if your shoulders are uneven. Since scoliosis is one of the causes of hip misalignment, you may ask a friend or family member to observe if you have a curved spine.

Besides the external appearance, uneven hips also affect your walk due to the difference in leg length. We recommend sitting or laying on a bed to check if one leg is longer than the other. You might even experience neck, shoulder, and lower back pains because of this condition.

Other symptoms include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Pain while sitting
  • Difficulty in walking

If you feel any of the symptoms mentioned above, you might have misaligned hips. We advise you to contact a chiropractic clinic immediately to help manage your pain and prevent your condition from worsening.

Recovery

No two recovery processes are the same, so here are factors crucial to an individual’s recovery:

  • Age
  • The severity of the condition
  • How long you’ve had the condition
  • How strict you adhere to the treatment plan
  • Willingness to make lifestyle changes

Most chiropractic patients feel significant improvements even after attending only a few sessions of hip adjustment. During the first few weeks, we’ll require you to undergo chiropractic procedures twice a week for the hip bones to heal faster. After about six to eight weeks, you’ll notice significant improvements since the ligaments and joints are starting to heal.

Also, it’s fine if you can only meet with our chiropractors once a week during this period. We’ll assess if you’re on the right track of the treatment plan during every session. This way, we can make necessary adjustments or decide to continue with the initial plan.

Aside from alleviating pain and discomfort, we also place importance on preventive care, so we try our best to educate our patients about this kind of program. Preventive care in LifeClinic lasts for several months to years, depending on your progress. It also involves lifestyle and diet changes for an overall healthy well-being.
