The hip joint is an extremely strong joint that supports both your body weight and provides mobility. Hip joint dysfunction commonly occurs when the pelvis and spine become misaligned or if the hip flexors become abnormal.
Chiropractic management may involve spinal and pelvis adjustments along side massage of gluteal and hip flexors. In severe muscle and ligament dysfunction dry needling may be advised.
