Move Chiropractic: Addressing Hip Impingement with Tailored Care



Hello and welcome to the Move Chiropractic blog! In today's post, we will discuss a common condition we treat at our clinic - hip impingement - and explore how our approach can help manage and potentially alleviate this painful issue.


What is Hip Impingement?

Hip impingement, also known as Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), is a condition where there is abnormal and wearing contact between the ball and socket of the hip joint. The result is increased friction during hip movements that can damage the joint. The common symptoms include stiffness in the thigh, hip, or groin, difficulty walking or limping after prolonged sitting or walking, and sharp, intense pain in the hip area.


How Move Chiropractic Can Help

Here at Move Chiropractic, we believe in a multifaceted approach to healthcare, using an array of techniques to address the root cause of issues like hip impingement. We view the body as an interconnected system, and therefore, we don't just treat the symptoms or the specific region of discomfort – we aim to restore your overall health and mobility.


1. Detailed Assessment

Our journey to addressing your hip impingement starts with a detailed assessment. Our team will conduct a thorough evaluation of your hip's condition, considering your medical history, lifestyle, and physical activities. By understanding the complete picture, we can tailor a treatment plan that will best serve your individual needs.


2. Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is at the heart of what we do. In the case of hip impingement, we use specific adjustments and manipulations to improve joint mobility and decrease pain and inflammation. This is coupled with soft tissue therapies to enhance muscle function and promote healing.


3. Exercise Rehabilitation

At Move Chiropractic, we strongly believe in the power of movement for recovery and long-term health. We provide personalized rehabilitation exercises designed to strengthen the muscles surrounding the hip joint, improve flexibility, and promote a balanced and stable gait.


4. Education and Lifestyle Modifications

Knowledge is power when it comes to managing conditions like hip impingement. We educate our patients about their condition and provide insights into lifestyle modifications and posture corrections. These changes can help minimize further hip damage and improve overall quality of life.

Hip impingement is a painful and restrictive condition, but with the right care and management, you can regain mobility and return to a life less hindered by pain. At Move Chiropractic, our mission is to help you live an active and healthy life.
