How do sports chiropractors treat hip pain?
Due to the complexity of the hip joint and it’s proximity to other major support structures within the body, the initial diagnosis is essential to proper treatment and alleviation of pain. Once the root cause of your pain is identified, one or more of our many treatment options will be utilized to provide relief, as well as a long-term resolution to your issue. Typically, we find that a limited number of treatments at either our Eden Prairie or Egan location combined with at home stretching and corrective exercises is effective in the resolution of your symptoms. However, if our sports chiropractic physician thinks that your pain is not related to a condition that is best treated in our office, you will be referred out for imaging and/or an assessment by another sports medicine provider from our extensive network of local healthcare professionals.
If you are dealing with hip pain and would like to make an appointment at our Eden Prairie or Eagan clinic locations, or to discuss your condition with one of our sports chiropractors, please contact us or call our scheduling line at 952-479-0043.
