Our hips are big, important joints and they play an essential role in our body’s normal movement and stability.
There are many common causes of hip pain, including:
- Injuries or trauma
- Stress due to wear and tear
- Compensating for other misaligned body structures
- Pain which originates elsewhere, but it felt in the hip area
When normal movement is restricted, other parts of the body need to work harder to compensate. Just like all parts of our bodies, if our hips are misaligned, it can have effects in other areas.
How do our hips become misaligned?
- Poor posture
- Sitting or standing too long
- Trauma or injury
- Compensating for other misaligned body structures
- Unusual or incorrect sleeping position
Chiropractors will seek to learn the cause and the source of hip pain (along with a thorough patient history) and may create a personalized treatment plan. A chiropractor may recommend natural treatment options, such as:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Exercises to build supporting muscles
- Cold Laser Therapy
- Postural advice
Taking care of your hip health is important for everyone, including children! Consider their growth as well as their activity levels: all which impact proper hip functioning. Our hips and our entire body benefit from regular chiropractic care!

Our goal at Huron Church Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre is to get and keep people of all ages healthy and active. As we age, many of us experience a decrease in mobility and thereby a reduction in activity. Maintaining a physically active lifestyle is the key to a long and happy life.
A study from the University of Iowa has concluded that regular chiropractic care can help older people stay active.
Along with other factors, the study focused on older patients’ activity levels for those who utilized regular chiropractic care versus those who did not.
Comparing the two groups, the researches concluded the following:
Those who utilized chiropractic care:
- Had fewer mobility limitations
- Fewer doctor visits and need for hospitalization
- Experienced less difficulty with daily activities, such as walking and lifting objects
This study provides evidence of a protective effect of chiropractic care against 1-year declines in functional and self-rated health among Medicare beneficiaries with spine conditions, and indications that chiropractic users have higher satisfaction with follow-up care and information provided about what is wrong with them.
If you’re experiencing a change in your mobility, we’d be happy to meet with you to discuss how you may benefit from chiropractic care. Please reach out to us to schedule your visit or for more information: 519-258-8544
