Hip pain is one of the most common symptoms we see as chiropractors. The hips carry a lot of weight and are very mobile joints, a combination that often leads to joint dysfunction and muscle imbalances. These two problems can commonly cause pain and other symptoms. However, not all symptoms that feel like they are coming from the hip, actually stem from hip-related issues. Being able to identify where your pain is coming from is an important step in understanding the underlying cause and ultimately correcting the problem.
