The Best Hip Pain Chiropractor San Diego Clinic

Sacroiliac pain can mimic other conditions, such as a herniated disc or hip problem.

Hip Pain Can Be Treated With Chiropractic

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.


Since childhood is a very physical time full of falls, accidents, cuts, scrapes, and occasional serious injuries, children should have their spines checked regularly. This includes checking their hips, their leg lengths and their SI or sacroiliac joints by a doctor of chiropractic to ensure they are free of subluxations. Chiropractors and body workers have often observed that a stressful birth can damage a child’s spine and structural system and can cause problems in adult life if not corrected. *link to Children & Chiropractic

Adjustments given to children are gentle and safe. Dr. Mark accommodates differences in size, shape, and strength from the surrounding tissue. The far-reaching effects of a healthy nervous system are essential for proper development and continued health. Most children can receive a Chiropractic adjustment and sleep through the whole process. In fact, most children enjoy their chiropractic adjustments and can’t wait to get on the table to have their nervous systems checked.



Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as degenerative joint disease, is an inflammatory joint disease and the most common cause of hip pain among older adults. In many people there are no symptoms, others may feel pain and some can be incapacitated by it. It causes stiffness, swelling, joint degeneration, and progressive cartilage loss. OA often results from an unbalanced spine and structural system that creates stress on the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is another inflammatory disease that causes joint pain. Rather than being caused by wear and tear, RA is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks healthy tissues as if they were foreign invaders.

Medicine offers no cure for arthritis, just symptom treatment including a lifetime of drugs for pain and inflammation. Arthritic patients have benefited from chiropractic care, and chiropractic care has even reversed osteoarthritis. Chiropractic helps to slow the disease and minimize your symptoms. In one study conducted in 2010, more than four out of five patients with hip arthritis noticed improved symptoms after nine or fewer chiropractic treatments.

Other Types of Inflammation

Typical symptoms include lower back pain near the buttocks and pain radiating or traveling into the buttocks or thigh. Sciatica has a wide variety of causes including an unhealthy spine with a protruded or ruptured disc, accidents, injuries after childbirth, advanced diabetes, arthritis, constipation, tumors, vitamin deficiencies, sports activities, sitting, and lifting objects. If you do have sciatica, from whatever cause, a chiropractic adjustment at our office is needed to remove pressure from your nerves, rebalance your spine, take stress off your discs, and allow your body’s muscles, glands, and tissues to function at an optimal level.

Athletes and other physically active people experience hip pain as a result of overuse. The joint and surrounding muscles, tendons, and ligaments become inflamed and irritated, making it difficult to maintain an active lifestyle. This is why many professional athletes see a chiropractor regularly and professional sports teams have chiropractors on staff. Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign your spine and the structures near it.

To prevent excessive joint wear and tear from developing into arthritis, we encourage active individuals to visit a chiropractor regularly. Our treatment can help reduce inflammation and improve mobility to help your hips stay healthy and strong. Exercise workouts are much more effective when the spine is balanced.


While overuse injuries occur gradually, traumatic injuries aren’t so subtle. If you fracture or dislocate your hip, the pain can be immediate and severe. Even if you don’t break any bones, your ligaments and muscles may be strained, sprained, or bruised as a result of slipping and falling. The pain from these injuries may keep you bedridden for weeks.

Fortunately, chiropractic care can help you heal faster. By helping to relax muscle spasms and strengthen weak joints, you can recover from your traumatic injury and get back on your feet faster than if you skip chiropractic treatments.
