Here at Mossuto Chiropractic in San Diego, our center gets many calls from patients around the area with hip complaints. Your hip has a few joints, including the sacroiliac joint or SI joint on both sides of the tailbone. The SI joint is formed where the sacrum and ilium meet, underneath the gluteal muscles. One of the functions of the SI joints is shock absorption of the spine. These SI joints support all the weight from the spine and transfers that weight to both legs of the individual.
t is important a doctor of chiropractic do a thorough and comprehensive exam in order to find the true underlying issue with the patient’s hip pain. If you have experienced low back, pelvic, sacroiliac, or gluteal pains, call our Chiropractic office today to schedule your consultation and exam with Dr. Mossuto to see if chiropractic is a good fit for you.
