If your hips get out of line, then walking, sitting, and sleeping can be uncomfortable. In order to rectify the pain, visit a chiropractor who can perform these three services for your hips.
Rolling Table Stretch
One of the most relaxing ways to get rid of hip tension and pain is by laying on a rolling table to stretching out your back. The table will also roll under your hips, which will help them adjust, allowing you to sit normally again.
To start, you will lay on the rolling table on your back. The chiropractor can then turn on the table so that the roller moves underneath your body. Relax your body completely to allow the roller to alleviate tension in your back muscles.
As the roller passes under your hips, do not lift your body or try to press your hips down harder. The machine will do all of the work for you.
Lifting Table Adjustment
Using a lifting table is especially effective if your hips are out of line. A lifting table specifically targets your hips and bottom, but the rest of your body is not affected.
To start, you will lay on the lift table on your stomach with your hips positioned above the section of the table that lifts up. The chiropractor will then lift the adjustable section of the table right under your hips, and then he or she will thrust your hips down quickly on the table so that the table goes flat again.
He or she may repeat this 5 or 6 times to help your hips fully adjust and line up again. This treatment is usually not uncomfortable because the tables are padded, so you do not need to worry about being a lot of pain. In fact, you should feel much better after this treatment because your hips will not be sending pain to your spine anymore.
Lastly, you can receive ultrasound therapy to help relieve hip pain and tension that is muscle-related. An ultrasound wand is used along with gel on your lower back. The ultrasound waves will penetrate deep into your muscles, and the waves can heal and help the pain to go away.
This therapy will help if you have been injured or if you have chronic pain, and the chiropractor can do this therapy at each session if necessary.
Using these three treatments, you can find relief from hip pain and tension, so visit your chiropractor today to get over your hip pain.
