HIP PAIN

Hip pain is caused by repetitive wear and tear. The hips are used every time you walk, run or ride a bike. This constant use over time can lead to injury. Although the hip joint is quite durable, it’s still susceptible to injury. Over time, the cartilage in your hip may wear down and cause pain. In addition, the hip bone itself may fracture. If you’re experiencing constant hip pain that doesn’t improve with rest, we’d recommend you see a doctor to ensure you’re not increasing the damage with simple everyday activities.

  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is designed to promote a patient’s overall health and fitness, prevent injury and maximize quality of life. Physical therapy is a treatment method for improving limited body movement and functionality and is effective for head pain caused by musculoskeletal issues including muscle tension and tightness, disc pathology, lack of neck motion, poor posture, and tightness in the back and shoulder blades.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a thousand year old traditional Chinese treatment for chronic pain. It is very effective treatment for head pain and has been used for head pain since the earliest beginnings of traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is not only effective for migraine headaches, but also is greatly effective in treating tension headaches, cluster headaches, post-traumatic headaches, and disease-related headaches due to sinus problems, hypertension, or sleeping disorders.
