Diagnosis and Treatment of Hip Pain
Are you having trouble moving around because of a hip problem? Are you having difficulty walking up or down stairs? Is it painful to turn your body on the bed? Hip pain is a common complaint that can arise from a myriad of conditions ranging in levels of severity and complexity. The hip is also an area where pain can be felt that is generated from distant sources (referred pain). Hip pain can be very painful and cause a lot of your daily activities to be very challenging. However, the good news with hip pain is that often times these problems are easily treatable.
Common Causes of Hip Pain
There are many reasons that can be causing your hip pain; one of the most common is referred pain coming from the back. In older individuals osteoarthritis of the hip joint is a problem that affects 25% of women and 15% of men over the ages of 60. Osteoarthritis is the most common disease affecting the hip joint. Other factors that can predispose you to osteoarthritic changes are prior incidents of trauma such as fracture or dislocation, family history of this disease, obesity, or other diseases affecting the joint. Muscles and ligaments of the hip joint can become sprained or strained and cause sudden intense pain. The joint itself can become fixated or restricted, which causes a decrease of range of motion and function, which can affect your daily activities and movement patterns.
Treatment of Hip Pain
There are many different avenues to take when it comes to treating hip pain. Traditionally some patients take medications for pain relief, while others will opt for surgery to address the problem. Still, more and more patients are turning to alternative treatments addressing a more natural and holistic approach such as chiropractic and physical therapy. When joints of the spine or extremities are fixated the nerves become irritated sparking an inflammatory response and pain begins to set in. Chiropractic care specializes in restoring proper joint and nerve function through various manipulation techniques. Chiropractic care is much more than just manipulation however, at Mountain View Pain Center we incorporate techniques such as Graston, myofascial release technique, functional movement screening, and various physical therapy modalities and exercises coupled to fit your specific problem. Our team of chiropractors will take you through an extensive evaluation to determine the proper diagnosis of your complaint. Please feel free to contact us at one of our offices and we will be more thank happy to answer any questions you might have.

Chiropractic Care for Migraine Headache Treatment
A randomized controlled trial of 6 months’ duration in February of 2000 was done to look at the benefits of chiropractic care for the treatment of migraines. One hundred twenty-seven volunteers between the ages of 10 and 70 years old were diagnosed with having headaches based on the International Headache Society standard, with a minimum of at least one migraine per month. Participants were asked to complete a headache diary during the entire trial noting the frequency, intensity, duration, disability associated symptoms, and if they used any medication for each migraine episode. The results of the study showed that approximately 90% of participants reported significant improvement in the number of headaches and a decrease in the intensity and duration of each episode due to chiropractic care.
Diagnosis of Migraines
Treatment of theses types of headaches can vary from the two different types of migraines. A migraine without an aura is the most common form of the headache which, accounts for 80% of migraines. The less common but more painful migraine is with an aura. This type of headache will cause patients to see spots of white. Proper diagnosis of the type of migraine is very important in the treatment of this type of headache.
Our Chiropractors specialize in treatment of migraine headaches. We will design a treatment plan that will help you get out of pain and improve your quality of life. If you or someone you know is suffering from headaches and are looking for help, please feel free to give us a call.

Chiropractic Care Question’s and Answers
At Mountain View Pain Center we get asked a lot of questions about Chiropractic care and today we are going to answer some of them.
Can a Chiropractor help me?
Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal issues ranging from low back pain, neck pain, ankle pain, wrist pain, and many other ailments affecting any of the joints in the body or related to the spine. To put it as simply as possible Chiropractors deal with muscles, nerves, and bones. This means that Chiropractors have a vast knowledge of the whole body and can help you with your pain, posture, range of motion, or overall function of the body.
What is the spinal manipulation/adjustment and why would I need one?
Chiropractors use spinal manipulations to remove fixations in the spine and to free the nerve that could be impinged by the bone. This impingement can cause a number of problems such as pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, and radiating pain. This means that when you’re having ankle pain for example the Chiropractor will look at your ankle, knee and low back to make sure there is no fixations in any of the joints.
Is Chiropractic safe and is it going to hurt?
This is one the most popular questions we get asked. Yes, Chiropractic is safe there have been a number of research papers done on Chiropractic, its effectiveness and safety of receiving chiropractic treatment. One of the most recent research article done was in the Spine Journal which stated that Chiropractic spinal manipulation is a safe and effective way to receive alternative treatment for musculoskeletal conditions. Spinal manipulations if perform by a licensed professional do not hurt they actually feel great!!!!
I heard that once you go to a Chiropractor you always have to go why?
This is not true. Chiropractors want to help you get out and stay out of pain. In the beginning of your treatment you may come in more often so your body can begin to heal faster. Once the initial pain levels have gone down your frequency of visits will decrease as you continue to progress through treatment. The next step is to start a course of physical therapy to help correct any muscular imbalances attributing to your condition, with either increase muscle strength or breaking a spasm. The Chiropractor may recommend wellness care for you because the daily stresses in our lives, such as our jobs can lead to further discomfort from poor posture or repetitive activities.
What’s the cost of coming in?
This is the second most common question asked. Cost can vary from person to person and may also vary from insurance company to insurance company. You may have no deductible or co-pay in some cases, or you may have no coverage at all. The best way to know how much your treatment is going to cost is to call our front desk and have them call in your insurance. If you have no insurance you could take advantage of our new patient special. Currently we are offering a new patient exam, consultation and 1 hour massage for only $49.00.
If you have more questions you can look at our FAQ portion of our website.
