Chiropractic Care for Hip Pain

You might not think about visiting a chiropractor when you’re living with pain in the hip, but chiropractic care can be very beneficial for any musculoskeletal pain. Learn more in the guide below from Dr. Rector and Dr. Ferrante at Monterey Chiropractic Group in Monterey, CA.

Common Causes of Pain in the Hip

There are many potential causes of hip pain, including those below.

Overuse Injuries

Daily life can put a strain on the hip joint. However, activities such as playing sports, exercise, and dancing can increase this strain and lead to overuse of the ligaments, muscles, and tendons.


The body’s joints often become inflamed due to issues like arthritis and osteoarthritis. However, bursitis is a common inflammatory issue. This occurs when the bursa – a small sac of fluid outside the hip joint – becomes inflamed due to overuse.


Sometimes, pain in the hip is due to a dislocation. A dislocation can occur due to contact sports, falls, and other accidents.


Sciatica is a common source of hip pain. However, unlike most other causes, sciatica doesn’t begin in the hip. Instead, it occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed in the lower back. This causes pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hip as well as the lower back, legs, and feet.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

The first step in relieving pain in the hip is to determine what’s causing it. For example, it does no good to treat the hip itself if the cause is a compressed nerve in the back. Therefore, finding the source of the pain is integral to relief.

Once that source has been located, a customized treatment plan will be developed. Some techniques used include the following.

  • Adjustments: Adjustments are typically performed to restore alignment, which can both address dislocations and sciatica.
  • Decompression therapy: When a compressed nerve is the cause of your hip pain, decompression therapy is utilized. This technique stretches the spine gently, which removes pressure from the nerve.
  • Soft tissue techniques: Various soft tissue therapies can be performed to relieve tension, reduce inflammation, stimulate tissue repair, and more.
  • Therapeutic and mobility exercises: Chiropractors recommend targeted stretching and strengthening exercises to help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, build weakened muscles, restore mobility and range of motion, and improve circulation.
