The hip is one of the central weight-bearing joints in the human body, so pain here can throw your whole body off kilter. Discomfort may be caused by physical trauma, like a fall, or by an underlying medical condition. Chiropractic (meaning “to be done by hand”) is a treatment that uses manual adjustment techniques on the spine to help with both, says Robert A. Hayden, D.C., Ph.D., F.I.C.C., proprietor of Iris City Chiropractic Center in Griffin, GA, and spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association. Nearly half of Hayden’s patients who are over 60 have hip complaints. Here, he explains how chiropractic can get the ball (and socket) rolling again.
