Your hip is the largest single joint in your body. Comprised of bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and muscles, it’s a miracle of motion that carries us through our lives.
This complexity however, means there are also a wide variety of things that can, and do, go wrong. From injuries of over-use through to degenerative conditions related to ageing, hips can become painful in a way that is hard to ignore.
Being located at the very center of our bodies, the hip can also be where we feel pain that is being generated elsewhere in the body. This is called Referred Pain and can be indicative of issues in the back, legs or nerves.
There is good news though. Chiropractic provides effective treatments for many of these conditions that are drug-free, surgery-free, and will soon have you on the road to recovery.
