Are you suffering from hip pain? Have you visited your primary care doctor, but he hasn't offered any helpful solutions? Were you just given pills to take for pain, but you want a more natural way to get relief? Or do you just have to live with the pain? At Reimer Wellness Center in Los Altos, CA, we take a holistic view of healing your hip pain to get you to a better place with a better quality of life.
Your First Visit
Various conditions could cause hip pain. Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, dysplasia, trochanteric bursitis, tight hip flexor, sciatic nerve inflammation, or osteoarthritis can all cause hip pain. Our chiropractor will talk to you about your hip pain on your first visit.
We must know what level of pain you are experiencing and where it is, but we also dig deeper into your overall health. If you are dealing with other health conditions, such as arthritis or sciatica, it is necessary to consider that when developing your treatment plan.
We also ask about your job and lifestyle. If you sit at a desk all day, that can aggravate your hip pain. If you drive a delivery van all day, getting in and out of the van can worsen your hip pain. Poor posture might make your hip pain worse. Maybe you play tennis on the weekend or bowl in a bowling league and that can exasperate the pain. We may do a CT scan or get x-rays to help us determine what is causing the hip pain. Even something like your spine being out of alignment may cause your hip pain.
Hip Pain Treatment
After determining what is causing your hip pain, our chiropractor develops a personalized treatment plan to help alleviate your pain. This plan includes techniques that are gentle and drug-free. This plan may include a spinal adjustment, which could relieve pressure on your hip. We may look at your posture and make adjustment suggestions. We can teach you stretching techniques and exercises that you can do at home. Massage therapy can help loosen your hip flexor.
