Hip Pain


Hip pain can have very negative consequences for your daily life as quick movement, walking and even weight-bearing can become difficult. These problems, if not addressed have the potential to become chronic in nature. In addition to this, you may begin to experience pain elsewhere, as the body compensates for the hip problems, such as in the lower back.


Hip pain is common among many people who are very physically active, either in sport or in their working lives.

Causes of hip pain:

  • Sporting injuries
  • Poor posture
  • Poor running technique
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Trauma
  • Fractures
  • Underlying disease or pathology (rare)

What are the most common causes of hip pain?

Once the chiropractor has ruled out fracture or pathology, the most common causes of hip pain are mechanical in nature. Examples of this are poor alignment and compensation for problems elsewhere in the body such as the lower back and legs. Over a period of time hip pain can lead to osteoarthritis.
