About Hip Pain:
Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.
Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.

Chiropractic Care For Hip Pain:
Persistent hip pain is often met with the recommendation for hip surgery by doctors. But surgery is invasive, expensive, and difficult to recover from. People with shifted hips should seek non-invasive treatment options first to minimize their risks.
Chiropractic is a great first option for people suffering from hip pain and other problems related to misaligned hips. It’s conservative, non-invasive, and gradual. Manual manipulation and mobilization therapy may improve flexibility, strength, and positioning of the hips to promote balance and realignment.
A combination of adjustments to the hip joints and joints in the spine, as well as massage therapies to loosen tight muscles that may cause tightness and shifted hips, may help bring the body back into balance. Once the hips are realigned and can move freely as intended, the problems of hip pain may be resolved.
