Hip Pain Treatment is Provided at Kosak Chiropractic
Do you have chronic or acute hip pain? Hip pain can be caused by a variety of reasons from bursitis and arthritis to a pinched nerve. Our chiropractor in Omaha can diagnose the causes of your hip pain and recommend a treatment program to help reduce your symptoms and heal your hip injury.
Causes of Hip Pain
The hip joint is one of the most complex and flexible joints in the human body. It is comprised of the femoral head, which is rounded, the acetabulum, which is the socket where the femoral head fits to create the joint, and numerous ligaments and tendons. This joint bears the weight of the body and allows us to walk, run, jump and climb. It receives just as much use as the back, ankles, and knees. As a result, it’s just as prone to injury. Common injuries that can cause hip pain include sciatica, dislocation of the joint, tendinitis, a sprain or strain, bursitis, arthritis in the hips and pinched nerves. If you have pain in your hips, it is important to seek treatment in order to determine the causes and receive a treatment program to help alleviate the pain so that you can resume your daily activities.
Symptoms of a Hip Injury or Condition
If you have a hip injury, you may experience a variety of symptoms, depending on your activity levels and the type of injury. Common symptoms include:
- Inability to put weight on the hip
- Increased pain when walking or moving the hip
- Limping or trouble walking

- Lower back and/or buttock pain

Chiropractic Treatments for Hip Injuries
Chiropractic treatment for hip injuries and conditions, including arthritis, sciatica, tendinitis, bursitis, a sprain or strain, frozen hip and a pinched nerve, can help reduce your pain, increase range of motion and help heal your injury. Our chiropractor in Omaha utilizes numerous non-invasive treatment options to help with pain in the hips, including chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy, injury rehabilitation, and acupuncture. Each treatment program is customized according to the injury, the individual and the individual's short and long term health and wellness goals.
Chiropractic adjustments help ensure the hip is properly aligned in its socket. This helps reduce inflammation, promotes proper movement of the joint and helps reduce joint pain. It can help with sciatica, a pinched nerve, arthritis pain, and bursitis.
Physiotherapy can involve multiple treatment modalities, including corrective exercises and stretches, electrical muscle stimulation, lifestyle advice, and manual therapy. This treatment option helps heal soft tissue injuries, like sprains, strains, frozen hip, sciatica, and pinched nerves.
Injury rehabilitation helps individuals regain the use of injured body parts through targeted exercises, movements, and stretches that are designed to improve the flexibility of an injured joint and muscle endurance. This treatment can also be part of a physiotherapy program.
