Why People Have Back and Hip Pain in Vacaville CA

Chiropractic Vacaville CA Hip and Back Pain

Colds and flu are the number reason why Americans take a visit to their doctor. The next in line is lower back pain in Vacaville CA.

In most cases, hip and back pains are often interrelated, wherein they come with several symptoms that could make an accurate diagnose quite difficult to pinpoint. When you feel pain in your groin or thigh area, it can be an indication that hip pain is the problem. The same thing goes with lower back pain since the problem is not always directly related to your back. Often, hip or buttock injuries can tend to cascade from lower back injury or strain. If you have suffered from back pain at some point, you know that it can be an uncomfortable and painful experience. So, just imagine what it's like when paired with hip and joint pain. You'll soon realize why such a combination can seriously jeopardize a person's mobility.

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body since it stretches from the length of your spine all the way down to the feet. When this nerve gets pinched, it will feel like the pain is coming from the hip area. It can be quite painful, and it is sometimes hard to pinpoint where the pain is stemming from. The pinched sciatic nerve can also become so stressed that you will also have lower back pain. You also won't feel any relief from walking, sitting, stretching, or laying down.


Hip Pain in Vacaville CA Can Happen At Any Age

Some people think that hip problems are only limited to the weak and feeble. This is not true because younger individuals have even undergone hip replacement surgery, which is mostly due to repetitive motions when playing sports. Hip pain that is associated with lower back pain is usually a result of injuries that caused the ligaments, muscles, and tendons to become inflamed, even when doing routine daily activities that causes stress on the hip joint. All it takes in one wrong move, without proper protection to the lower back, to cause severe pain in the hip area as well.

Unfortunately, older individuals who have undergone hip replacement surgery never regained their mobility like they used to prior to their hip problems. However, there are still some lucky ones who were able to regain their flexibility due to their participation in hours of rehabilitation and physical therapy. Younger patients have better chances of being able to resume doing their normal activities after getting a hip replacement. The success rate depends on how healthy the muscles, ligaments, and tendons that the individual has.

If you are feeling pain on either your hip or lower back, it is always smart to make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible. The pain will never go away completely unless you get proper diagnosis and treatment. Make sure to also follow proper lifting and bending postures to avoid injuring your hips.
