Re: Hip pain after adjustment
I prefer, as many do here, physical therapy to chiro. Not that I haven't tried chiro, but the adjustments only put the vertabrae back in, if there is a disc involved, it can be helped thru PT. The chiro does nothing to teach you how to help yourself at home, all they do is keep you coming back.
At PT they not only relieve your pain, but teach you what exercises to do to strengthen your back & also PT can repair a herniated disc. I'm living proof of it. Had pt for a herniated disc 5 years ago & it is all better.
I had pain over my hip area from the herniated disc. You would do better in PT than the chiro. The exercises I learned in PT are priceless!
Wanted to add, I was always sore after chiro adjustment. At PT they told me I should NEVER be sore after any treatment from them & if I am, to report it to them immediately & they would adjust the exercises.
