Many patients that we treat come to us seeking relief from hip pain. It can be caused by a number of issues, ranging from injuries to arthritis. Did you know that hip pain can even be caused by your feet? Foot Levelers custom-made stabilizing orthotics might be able to help!

All About Hip Pain

The largest ball-and-socket joint in the body is the hip joint, which allows for fluid movement during walking, running, and so much more. As the hip bones moves in its socket, a cushion of cartilage works to prevent friction.

With age and use, that cartilage can wear down or become damaged along with the bones, tendons, and muscles in and around the hip. Hip pain is typically a symptom of an underlying condition like arthritis, certain cancers, tendinitis, fractures, or muscle or tendon strain. Your healthcare team will work together to determine the source of your pain.

Foot Levelers custom-made stabilizing orthotics can help ease your hip pain by stabilizing your body's foundation - the feet - and restoring alignment to your hips.

Hip Pain Symptoms

Depending on the condition that’s causing your hip pain, you might feel the discomfort in these places:

  • Thigh
  • Groin
  • Buttocks
  • Inside the hip joint
  • Outside of the hip joint

We occasionally see patients who feel pain from other areas of the body, like the back and groin, in the hip. In most cases, hip pain relief is likely to be found when the focus is put on restoring optimal function to the entire body, starting from the ground up! Instead of treating only the symptoms you are experiencing, we strive to fix the root of the problem.

Treatment

Through chiropractic treatment, we can help treat your hip pain. Our techniques often include chiropractic adjustments, icing and heating, and a variety of stretching and strengthening exercises to improve the function of your hips and reduce pain.

We also suggest the use of Foot Levelers custom orthotics, which are on sale starting Friday, July 6th. Call us at (770) 252-3661 to schedule your Custom FootLeveler Orthotic scans, and take advantage of our BOGO offer. You can also choose to take $40 off one single pair!
