Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain?

You may develop hip pain after a fall, sports injury, or car accident that damages the joint and its supporting muscles and ligaments. Sometimes, a problem in your lower spine causes referred pain in your hip.

Hip pain also occurs due to conditions affecting the joint, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Cartilage tears (labral tears)
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Overuse injuries
  • Bursitis (inflamed sacs between bones and soft tissues)
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (irregularly shaped hip bones)

You may also have hip pain after injuring the hamstring tendons, which connect the hamstring muscles to the pelvis.

What symptoms accompany hip pain?

If you have hip pain, there’s a good chance you will also have one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Limited hip movement
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Hip weakness
  • Lower back pain
  • Difficulty moving your leg
  • Difficulty putting weight on the hip
  • Grinding or clicking sensations in the joint

Hip pain typically worsens when you lay on the affected side.

How is hip pain treated?

The Zen Attitude Acupuncture team specializes in integrative care, drawing from several natural therapies to treat the many conditions causing hip pain. Three essential hip pain therapies include:


Acupuncture is proven to relieve acute and chronic pain. The acupuncture needles stimulate your body to release endorphins (natural painkillers) and anti-inflammatory substances.

Additionally, acupuncture increases blood flow, delivering oxygen and nutrients needed to heal the tissues. Precise needle placement also relaxes the painful, tight muscles, reduces your stress, and supports overall healing.

Naturopathic and homeopathic treatments

Naturopathic medicine uses many natural remedies to relieve hip pain and support the body’s natural healing ability, including herbs, nutrition, lifestyle changes, and hands-on therapies. Homeopathy creates oral or injectable treatments by diluting natural substances with proven healing abilities.

Vitamin injections

Your body depends on vitamins and minerals to reduce inflammation and heal the problem causing your hip pain. A vitamin injection delivers a precise dose that rapidly restores balance.

Zen Attitude Acupuncture offers numerous vitamin injections, including some that ease muscle pain, soothe nerves, reduce inflammation, and help slow the progression of hip arthritis.
