Chiropractors for Hip Pain

on the Sunshine Coast

Are hip problems limiting your mobility and taking a toll on your daily life? Our doctors have helped Sunshine Coast locals break free from discomfort for the last 34 years.

What causes hip pain and how does it affect our health?

Affecting at least 10% of the population and 30 to 40% of sports players, hip pain is more common than you might think.

Its most common cause is osteoarthritis (OA), a degenerative joint disease that erodes the protective cartilage in the hip joint.

It can also be caused by inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), bursitis and tendinitis. Accidents or injuries, including fractures or dislocations, can result in acute hip pain.

Sadly, hip conditions extend beyond physical discomfort, impacting activity levels, cardiovascular health, quality of sleep, weight management and mental well-being. That is why addressing your hip issues early is crucial, not only for pain relief but also to maintain your overall quality of life.

We take a comprehensive approach, treating not only your immediate discomfort but most importantly its underlying causes, so you can achieve sustainable hip health and improved mobility.

Diagnostic

Our doctors will diagnose the cause(s) of your hip pain. During an initial consultation, they will take an in-depth medical history, perform a physical exam and may carry out an imaging diagnosis (such as X-rays or MRIs).

Chiropractic Care

During your appointment, we will use techniques such as spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, low-force techniques, foot and gait analysis, bracing or taping and more to realign your pelvis and aim to relieve your hip pain.

Advice

We will also give you personalised advice to help address your symptoms such as stretching and therapeutic exercises, ergonomic and lifestyle advice and nutritional recommendations. We may also prescribe supplements or complementary medical tests.
