Hip Pain

As a Chiro Clinic in Kingston, patients often come to see us with Hip Pain.

Hip pain can commonly refer to problems originating in the groin, buttock, pelvis and lower back, and can often cause pain in the thigh region or even knee. [1,2]

Hip pain affects a very large number of Australians, with higher rate in the 50+ age group. A study looking at patients 65 yr and older, found over 19% were suffering with hip pain. [3]
