Can Chiropractor help with hip pain?

Two years ago, I found out that I have hyperflexible joints. I developed a shoulder impingement resulting in chronic bursitis and tendonitis.

Several months ago, I started having hip pain. I had no apparent triggers for this pain. I suspect it is hip tendonitis. I've been taking anti-inflammatories and icing the hip down.

My question here is: Has anyone found any relief of hip pain by going to a Chiropractor?

Re: Can Chiropractor help with hip pain?

I found massage therapists to be more helpful that chiropractors--particularly those who practice medical massage.

Re: Can Chiropractor help with hip pain?

Thank you. I'll look into seeing a massage therapist. My Chiropractor runs a small wellness center that has a couple massage therapists who specialize in different areas.

Re: Can Chiropractor help with hip pain?

My advice, if money is not an issue, is to seek a Chiropractic office that offers massage as well. The combination of the combined treatments will really help you out. If money is an issue, you may want to opt out on a massage therapist, as that is most likely not going to be covered by insurance. By the way a chiropractor who also does deep tissue muscle work will be able to treat the Brusitis of the shoulder, hip pain, as well as most other joint, bone, or muscle pain you may have. Also, please understand that somtimes hip pain can actually be caused by a missaligned spine, or some other back pain that you may not even notice. Often if you fix the back, the hip will be fixed as well. This may not be true for degenerative (SP?) bone disseases, or a cartalige (SP?) problem, but if you are unaware of the exact hip diagnosis, chiropractic care may really help you out. Just some things to consider, hope this helps.

Re: Can Chiropractor help with hip pain?

Saw my Chiropractor today. Found out that my pelvis is tilted forward, throwing my hip out of alignment. He seems to think a few treatments will help significantly. If they don't he said we would look at other options for treatment. I go to a wellness center that also has massage, PT, laser light, decompression, etc...
