Hip pain is a common problem, and can come from a variety of sources. In this article, we take a look at the causes and effects of hip pain, as well as some ways to help alleviate or even fix it.
The first step to curing your hip pain is identifying its cause. It could be because of the presence of arthritis in hips or a sports injury. Once you have identified the reason, you can then move to finding a solution that is best suited for your condition.
Hip pain is often caused by arthritis, injury, or problems with connective tissues surrounding the associated joints.
There are three main types of hip pain: Acute (sudden) pain, Chronic (long-term) Pain and pain with activity. Acute pain generally comes on over a short period of time and usually gets better after a little while. Chronic Pain can last for more than three months without getting any better, but it does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with your hip joints.
Pain with activity means that you feel discomfort in your hips when you try to do certain things like walking or climbing stairs.

If you’re suffering from hip pain, you’re not alone. Approximately one in four adults report having pain in the lower back, buttocks or hip area.
- The first step is to distinguish if the pain is coming from your hip or your spine. If it seems like the pain is coming from your hip and not your back, start with pain free range of motion exercises for the hip joint.
- It’s also important to stay as active as possible to keep up muscle strength and keep good circulation going through the area. Walking, Yoga, and Tai Chi can be a great option for this!
- When it comes to prevention tips for back pain, hip pain, and sciatica, try avoiding sitting for extended periods of time and making sure that any chair you do sit on isn’t too deep as this will put pressure on those lower back joints, muscles and nerves.
Most doctors agree that pain lasting more than three months should get professional evaluation. Blood tests, xrays, and MRI’s may show arthritis and that can be important. But functional alignment balance and coordination can help some hip pain patients stay off the operating table.
No doctor can guarantee the outcome of any treatment and I never do. But if you already tried pain management and could not find the lasting hip pain relief that you need, here are a few things that might help.
Functional Medicine can help reduce inflammation and the risk of overmedication.
Because certified functional medicine practitioners help their patients with diet, supplements, exercise and stress reduction therapies.
Telemedicine now, more than ever has become a popular choice for those who choose virtual doctor’s visits. With wearable 24/7 vitals and dietary tracking in most smart watches, most of the heavy lifting is automatic. But patient specific recommendations still require communication with a functional medicine expert.
Several years of post graduate certification allow some chiropractors to effectively treat their patients without ever twisting or cracking anyone’s spine. Instead, these doctors spend several extra years learning unique alignment, balance, and coordination treatments, exclusively available at certified upper cervical chiropractors.
