St. Johns County Back & Hip Pain Chiro Rehabilitation Services

Back Pain Relief from St. Augustine’s Spinal Solutions Chiropractic Care Clinic

If you are dealing with both back and hip pain, it can be tough to figure out where the problem is actually originating. Determining the source of the pain is critical for proper rehabilitation. Via an examination at the Spinal Solutions office in St. Johns County, FL, our chiropractor, Dr. Derek Sisak, can quickly identify musculoskeletal problems in patients and employ the right therapeutic and chiropractic treatments.

Is it Your Hip or Your Back?

It is common for someone to mistake their hip pain for back pain, and vice versa. So, how can you tell whether your pain is originating in your hip or your back? While most chiropractors will be able to get a general idea by asking specific questions regarding your pain, you may be curious yourself.

Typically, if you have back pain but are also experiencing even the slightest groin pain in and around your hip joint, this is a sign that your pain may be originating in the hip. If you have pain that starts above the waistline and then travels downward, this is a sign that your pain may originate in your lower back. If you also experience pain in the buttock, thighs, ankles, or feet, these are also signs of lower back problems that require chiropractic care.

Causes of Hip and Back Pain

Some of the most common causes of hip pain include:

  •  Piriformis syndrome
  • Sacroiliac joint pain
  • Osteoarthritis

On the other hand, some of the most common causes of back pain include:

  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis

How a Chiropractor Can Help

By understanding and asking in-depth questions regarding the location, severity, and description of the pain, the team at St. Augustine’s Spinal Solutions clinic in St. Johns County can get a better picture of what might be going on. In some cases, imaging tests are necessary to get a closer look, especially if we suspect arthritis or spinal degeneration. Imaging tests can often provide a trained chiropractor with the correct diagnosis in order to best treat the problem.
