Do you struggle with hip pain?

Hip pain can be a debilitating condition that affects our ability to move freely and enjoy daily activities.

While there are various causes of hip pain, specific structural corrective chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive approach to relieving discomfort and restoring mobility.

Hip mobility is essential for everyday activities like walking, climbing stairs, and even sitting down comfortably. When something isn’t right in your hips, you’ll probably notice it quickly.

Common conditions contributing to hip pain include, osteoarthritis, bursitis, muscle strains, tendonitis and hip joint displacement. These issues can result from new and old injuries, sports related incidents and the natural aging process.

How Does a Specific Structural Correction Chiropractor Treat Hip Pain?

Structural chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine, joints, discs, nerves and nervous system recognizing that displacements in the spine and pelvic structures impact various areas of the body including the hips.

  1. Accurate diagnosis: A comprehensive structural correction chiropractic examination will identify the root cause of your hip pain. During this examination we will assess your condition with orthopedic and neurological testing as well as your posture, range of motion and spinal alignment. In some cases, additional diagnostic tests such as X-rays or MRI scans may be ordered to gather more information.
  2. Spinal Corrections: During the initial phase of care, spinal corrections including hip and extremity adjustments are used to correct displacements of the spine and pelvis. These corrections relieve pressure on the nerves, hip joints and spinal discs thus improving overall joint function which reduces hip pain.
  3. Lifestyle Recommendations: In addition to hands-on spinal corrections, specific structural corrective chiropractic provides lifestyle recommendations to support the initial phase of care and to prevent future hip problems. These may include in-office spinal remodeling exercises or a home stretching and strengthen program for the hip and spinal muscles.

Certain forms of hip pain may not be treatable with Structural Chiropractic care. Some causes of hip pain may need further evaluation by an orthopedist or physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor.

If you’re tired of never-ending hip pain, consider seeing Dr. Gessert for relief through specific structural chiropractic care!

What’s the Difference Between Structural Chiropractic Care and Conventional Chiropractic Care?

Most Chiropractors you’ll find on your typical Google search are conventional chiropractors. They focus on reducing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and increasing range of motion in joints.

They manage these health concerns with the use of general manipulations of the neck and spine. This is what most chiropractors offer in the way of care, and we believe that most of them do a great job at it.

As a Specific Structural Corrective Chiropractor, Dr. Gessert is dedicated to diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause of your condition. Through a comprehensive examination, problem areas called Segmental Displacements are found and corrected as the cause of your secondary condition (symptoms).

Through this examination process Dr. Gessert creates an individualized plan to correct these displacements of the spine which cause a myriad of secondary conditions (symptoms). It is very common to find the cause of neck pain, back pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling and even headaches as a structural problem in the spine.
