Main Content

Everyone seems to have a different definition of what the hip is and where the hip is located anatomically. 

Medically, the hip refers to the articulation of the head of the femur with the pelvis, the most proximal part of the leg. Usually, when a medical professional is referring to the hip, this is the joint they are eluding to. Pain in this region is typically due to myofasciitis, bursitis, or arthritis. At CAM Clinic, we will always do a thorough exam to rule out any riskier causes. Younger children should always have X-rays taken with pain in the hips due to the risk of osteonecrosis.

Laymen use of the word "hip," setting aside cool youngsters braving odd hats and sun glasses, typically refers to the boney prominences in the low back on either side of the sacrum (the posterior superior iliac spines). These joints that patient's refer to as their hips are actually called Sacro-Iliac Joints, or SI joints for short. Pain in this region is extremely common and may come and go on a days notice. However, prolonged pain in the SI joint may occur with arthritis, muscle spasms, subluxation, or trauma. Pain in the SI joint is one of the most common complaints treated by Chiropractors, and can usually be successfully managed in a short period of time. Once again, you need to be examined by a CAM Clinic doctor to rule out any other causes.
