Your symptoms.

Chiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat and can help with:

Hip pain.

The hip is a strong ball-and-socket joint set into the pelvis. It is contained by a capsule and lubricated by synovial fluid - your body's version of WD-40. It is held in place by ligaments and the muscles of your glutes, hamstrings, thigh and lower back. These muscles are supplied by nerves from your lower back and attach to your pelvis.

Common causes of hip pain include:

During a chiropractic assessment we will watch how you walk and move as well as testing the hip joint, sacroiliac joints and joints of your spine and the surrounding muscle groups to help us find the cause of your pain.

Hip Osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of hip pain in adults. Symptoms may include:

  • Pain in the hip, groin and/ or thigh
  • Difficulty lying and sleeping on the hip
  • Feeling like you can't stride out when walking
  • Pain when walking / limping
  • Pain in the hip if you stub your toe
  • Lower back pain - for many people lower back pain can be the first sign.

As Chiropractors we are able to assess your hip joint and alongside your pain and history discuss with you the level of arthritis that might be present. Sometimes it is appropriate for us to suggest and refer you to your GP for an x-ray. Whilst we can't turn back the clock on arthritis we can help you reduce and manage the pain, maintain as much mobility as possible, give you helpful exercises and take care of the surrounding muscles, joints and nerves that may be affected from compensating.

Groin Pain.

Groin pain is often a key sign of hip osteoarthritis however it can also be caused by:

  • An Inguinal Hernia - you may be able to feel a small lump in your groin
  • Kidney problems - the tubes from your kidney run deep in your groin
  • Groin strain - often from over stretching, this can be painful when walking, particularly upstairs.
