Hip pain

Hips the most under appreciated area of the body. They are often the source of a lot of discomfort in the lower limb and lower back.

 

Your Chiropractor will be able to assess your hip and tell you why you're feeling pain. Not only this but because of how important your hip is to the body, your Chiropractor will often assess your lower back, knees, ankle and feet as well. The reason for this is that it is important to fully appreciate how your body is moving and supporting itself.

 

Treatment of the hip is a complicated and timely process, as the muscles here are built for endurance, once they are weak, it takes time to rebuild them.

 

The good news is that once you've had the right treatment for your hip, you often find you feel much better as it will have a knock on effect in helping your lower back, knees and ankles. So it is worth the effort and time you put in during the recovery.

 

Common hip complaints we see in clinic:

  • Muscles strains

  • Ligament sprains and tears

  • Capsular strains and tears

  • Muscle weakness, particularly with the hip rotators, such as Piriformis.

  • Various stages of arthritis

Lower Limb Injuries

Knee pain

Knee pain is a very common issue we see in the clinic.

Did you know that most knee issues actually come about because of an issue at the hip or foot? Getting the whole lower limb assessed by a professional is the key to finding out the underlying cause of your knee pain.

You can waste lots of time trying to solve the problem occurring at the knee, when there is usually a lot more going on in the lower limb as a whole.

Common knee issues we see in clinic:​

  • Ligament sprains

  • Muscle strains

  • Knee surgery rehabilitation

  • Knee weakness

  • Patella tracking issues

  • Chondromalacia patella

Ankle Pain

If an ankle injury has been present for months, the stability of the ankle and foot will be compromised and an injury is likely to reoccur. Ankle injuries may be from falling and/or twisting the ankle. However, another potential cause of ankle pain can also be as a result of a trapped nerve in the lower back referring pain to the ankle. A full examination with your Chiropractor can determine if this is the case.

Common Ankle complaints we see in clinic:​

  • Ankle sprains and strains

  • Calf pain

  • Achillies tendinitis, tendonosis

  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

  • Back injury causing leg pain.

 

Foot pain

The foot's main role is to distribute force throughout the body as it strikes the ground, its a structure that is designed for flexibility and shock absorbance, if the foot is carrying an injury it means this flexibility is compromised and something else will be absorbing this pressure, for example the calf, knee hip or back.

 

Common foot complaints we see in clinic:

  • Symptoms related to over pronation

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Flat feet related problems

  • Over pronation related problems

  • Joint pain

  • lower limb pain and referral
