Common Types & Causes of Hip Pain

Overcome Hip Pain After Car Accident

The hip joints and muscles are a vital part of how we move and function on a daily basis. Moving from sitting to standing, changing directions, lifting, walking and running all of these activities use your hip joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. When your hip joints are strained or injured, not only can there be significant pain, but your whole daily routine and quality of life is affected.

While there can be many reasons for hip pain here are the most common reasons we see:

  • Arthritis causes inflammation or stiffness in the hip joints.
  • Tendinitis associated with inflamed tendons due to overuse.
  • A hip fracture usually high on the femur near the hip joint.
  • Pinched nerves and slipped discs.
  • Injuries of hip muscles including sprains, strains or tears.
  • Dislocation of the hip joint.

When your pain occurs on the inside of the hip or near the groin area, the pain is often from the hip joint itself. However, if your pain occurs on the outside of your hip, or on the top of your thigh or near the far lower back and outer buttock region, normally the cause is related to a problem in your connective tissue surrounding the hip joint.

Hip pain may occur as secondary pain after a car accident. Because you may have injured your knee or your back you may not notice hip pain right away. Overall any abrupt movement can cause misalignment of your whole body including your hips.

If you are experiencing more than one type of pain recognize that oftentimes the pain can be related. Hip pain should be treated as soon as possible so that you can have the best recovery, with the least amount of risk for chronic pain or disease.

How Can Hip Pain Affect Your Life? 

Short Term Impact of Hip Pain

Because our back, hips, and legs are used in so many daily activities having a hip injury or pain can greatly reduce your productivity and quality of life. Hip pain can particularly make it uncomfortable to walk or participate in any physical activity, including lifting, turning and walking. Also, any sudden hip pain is a sign that you need immediate help.

Long Term Impact of back Pain

Despite the hip joint being one of the most durable joints in your body, over time it can wear down, and with any injury or pain, it can be a sign that there is something else happening that needs to be addressed.

Long term hip pain can lead to further injury or disease if left untreated. If you experience hip pain for extended periods of time and you notice any redness, swelling, or heat around your hip we encourage you to come in for an evaluation as soon as possible.

Our goal at Axcess Accident Center is to reduce the risk of chronic hip pain so that you can do all the activities you need and want to after an auto accident. 

Lasting Relief From Pain or Discomfort

How Chiropractic Care Focused on Your Needs Benefits You?

At any Axcess Accident Center location in Utah, our chiropractors have been specially trained to manually adjust and realign your hip joints and spinal column to reduce pressure on your surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tendons.

With the help of X-rays and MRIs, a chiropractor can pinpoint the direct cause of your pain and alleviate it by adjusting the bones and joints that are causing the hip pain. Appropriate adjustments will also reduce the tension in your affected connective tissues, increase blood circulation to the area and promote healing, flexibility, and range of motion.

With severe hip injuries, chiropractic care may not be enough, and we will always be sure to refer you to a certified and trustworthy specialist who can help you make a full recovery.
