Hip/SI Joint Pain

Are you tired of waking up in the morning and feeling that dull, nagging hip pain when you first step out of bed? Do you feel like your legs can’t support the weight of your body anymore? These are common issues we help our patients overcome. We can help you too. 

What Commonly Causes Hip/SI Joint Pain?

Joint Inflammation

Problems in the hip and sacroiliac joint are caused by an increase in inflammation and swelling in the joints. This inflammation is often caused by a problem known as degenerative joint disease. As we age, our joints begin to break down and become less mobile, leading to unwanted hip pain and stiffness.

Sudden Movement or Falls

Acute injuries from a slip and fall, or quick bending or twisting, can cause stress reactions, leading to pain in the hip or sacroiliac region. Falling can often cause compression and misalignment in the sacroiliac and hip regions. Without proper assessment and treatment, these injuries often lead to chronic problems.

Leg Length

Believe it or not, most people have one leg that is longer than the other. Usually this problem goes unnoticed or unchecked for years. The differences in leg length has a great effect on how you walk, stand, and the balance of the pelvis. Over time, this can cause issues in your hip and sacroiliac joints.

How Hip/SI Joint Pain Impacts Your Life

Painful Mornings and Fall Risks

Many of our patients with hip pain and sacroiliac joint problems say they have trouble standing up straight when they first wake up in the morning. Some have to take a long, hot shower to be able to move around normally.

For elderly people, this can make every morning a fall risk, not to mention that it’s unpleasant. It’s important to know that if you’re experiencing symptoms like this, they usually don’t get better over time, but worse. The sooner you seek treatment, the more likely it is that we can help prevent long-term effects on your body.

Pain or Discomfort Walking

Walking for more than 5-10 minutes at a time should not be a strain. It may seem normal, or maybe just a “sign of aging,” but hip pain or sacroiliac region discomfort is a signal that something is wrong in your body, and it should be addressed to prevent further issues.

We help patients who suffer from sacroiliac or hip joint problems find relief from their symptoms. We can help you too. 

Missing Out on Activities You Love

Hip pain prevents you from doing the things they love most. Missing out on the joys of life and not being able to have active hobbies can diminish your health and happiness. When you can no longer walk your dogs, enjoy shopping with your children, go for a bike ride, or hike out in nature, it’s time for help. Our team at 417 Spine is here for you. Give us a call and get started.
