Chiropractic is not just for back pain. The specific chiropractic adjustment is suitable for any joint in the human body. Chiropractic adjustments realign joints to restore proper nervous system function, since dysfunctional joints and resultant inflammation can cause nerve interference. There are many nerves in and around the hip joint, nerves to the structures around the hip and nerves traveling through the hip region to the leg and foot.
Dr. Johnson always performs a full-body analysis of every patient on every visit, a thorough procedure that is a hallmark of Activator Methods doctors. There are many ways that Dr. Johnson can test the hip and leg to find the cause of the problem. X-rays can also provide valuable evidence of malposition, degeneration, or disease.
A correct diagnosis is essential before embarking on care, since hip pain can sometimes be caused by problems in the knee or low back, referring pain or biomechanical problems to the hip. Whether the pain is caused by hip problems or elsewhere, Dr. Johnson can guide you to the correct diagnosis and path to recovery. A combination of gentle Activator adjustments, exercise, and other therapies may be just what you need.
