Hip/Pelvic

Hip Pain Symptoms

Hip pain can strike when you least expect it, even while sitting or lying down. If you experience hip pain while performing regular light or strenuous exercise, it may be due to increased stress on the hip joint, stabilizer, or flexor muscles. Hip pain can impede movement, cause muscle spasms, or cause tenderness.

Hip pain is frequently experienced in conjunction with lower back and lumbar discomfort, as the symptoms tend to travel throughout the lower body, pelvic area, and upper thighs.

    Chronic Back Pain and Acute Back Pain Symptoms

    Back pain symptoms can range in intensity from mild to severe and the symptoms can vary from central to radiating pain. It is common to have, decreased range of motion in the back, muscle spasm, impaired functional and athletic activities and postural changes. One of the main causes of back pain, whether acute or chronic, is low back strain. Sciatica and disc heriation can also cause pain in the lower back and the legs.Whether your back pain appears suddenly or has been an ongoing, most back conditions can be conservatively treated with favorable results.

    Sciatic Pain Symptoms

    Sciatica, or sciatic nerve pain, is a term used to describe general pain symptoms that begin in the lower back and travel throughout the lower body. While sciatica is not a specific diagnosis, it’s most often caused by one of many soft tissue and disc disorders. Often, sciatic pain presents itself inconsistently and with no easily identifiable underlying cause.Sciatic pain is defined as a consistent burning or tingling sensation in the areas surrounding the lower back. Frequently the pain will emanate down the back of the legs as it makes its way down the path of the sciatic nerve. This pain is often associated with weak muscles and muscle spasms.
    While general wear and tear on the spine is most often the cause of sciatica, there are specific conditions that present as sciatic nerve pain:
    • Spinal misalignment
    • Nerve damage
    • Pregnancy
    • Lumbar spinal stenosis
    • Pinched nerves
    • Pelvic misalignment
    • Degenerative disc disease (spondylolisthesis)
    • Herniated, bulging, or slipped disc
    • Neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy
    • Piriformis syndrome

    Treating Sciatica and Sciatica Nerve Pain:

  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Ultrasound
  • Electric stimulation (ESTM/TENS)
  • Neural stretching.
  • Spinal mobilization
  • Active Release Technique® (ART)
  • Stretching
  • Heat Therapy
  • Manual traction therapy
  • Postural reeducation and strengthening therapy.
