Bottom Line:

There aren’t too many daily activities that don’t require the use of your hips. The hip is a ball and socket joint that connects your legs to your pelvis. If you have been suffering from hip pain, even walking around the house can be difficult. However, is that bad old hip a result of age or joint imbalance?  A top Chiropractor in Wayland MI may be able to help.

Why it Matters in Wayland MI:

Chronic hip pain has historically been treated with injections or even hip replacements. These invasive treatments have been performed tens of thousands of times per year, with mixed results. Thankfully, new research has begun to show that proper maintenance of your hips may be able to save you from the scalpel. When your low back, hips, and pelvis are balanced and have a full range of motion, your hips will have equal wear and tear, and they’re designed to last a lifetime! Researchers have found that adjustments to the low back and hips can improve hip pain by over 60% and provide a statistically significant improvement in range of motion.

  • Low-impact exercise and adjustments can improve your range of motion and reduce your pain.
  • Research has shown improvement in hip pain by over 60% after chiropractic adjustments.
  • Adjustments in Wayland have been shown to be over 30% more effective than exercise for easing the pain of hip osteoarthritis.
