Hip & buttock pain may begin in any of the structures in and around the hip & buttock. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the cushioning disks of the low back. Hip & buttock pain may also come from regions near the lower back, the pelvis, upper back and knee or leg & foot. Swiss DolorClast® method treatment may provide relief where other therapies have failed and should be considered as a viable non-surgical solution.
Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled sac near a joint) at the outside (lateral) point of the hip known as the greater trochanter. When this bursa becomes irritated or inflamed, it causes pain in the hip. This is a common cause of hip pain as well as perpetuating chronic back pain.
Hamstring tendonitis is the name given to describe the inflammation, swelling and irritation of the hamstring tendon. The hamstring muscle runs down the back of the upper thigh and is connected to the knee joint by a large tendon. Overuse, injury and stress can causes this tendon to become inflamed and hamstring tendonitis will develop. Repeated strains often occur in sprinters and runners and may result in tendonitis if untreated.
Tightness and shortening of these muscles will produce difficulty performing hip extension, usually caused by overuse injury generally excessive kicking motions (football, and muay thai kicking) as well as incorrectly performed sit-up exercises. May also result in the inability to flex, abduct and externally rotate the hip.
The piriformis is a muscle that lies deep within the buttocks, covered by the gluteal muscles. Trauma and or overuse syndromes of these muscles result in irritation and spasms. The piriformis and gluteal muscles can either irritate or compress the proximal sciatic nerve due to spasm and/or contracture, and this problem can mimic a discogenic sciatica.
Iliotibial band syndrome is a common injury to the thigh, generally associated with running, cycling, hiking or weight-lifting (especially squats). It may cause local hip pain and result in lower back aches as well. There is usually difficulty lying on the affected side and turning over during sleep results in waking due to pain.
Trigger points are isolated focal points located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. When touched, these trigger point produce pain that may be felt in a location far from the actual point. Trigger point pain often accompanies chronic musculoskeletal disorders or mimic more serious conditions for example trigger points in the mid or low back or thigh muscles like may mimic a hip problem because the hip falls within the referred pain pattern erector spinae, quadratus lumborum or tensor fascia lata.
Often hip problems may originate from the back and thus require treatment for spondylosis, spondylolisthesis, stenosis or disc problems. After a careful examination you may be treated with a combination of chiropractic treatment and DTS spinal decompresssion.
We had a fantastic experience with Dr Lily Leong at Back2Life clinic! She's patient, genuinely great with kids [and] my son's asthma has improved under her care. Highly recommend this clinic!
Dr Stakes cares more about your health and well-being than about making money. I knew he was a really trustworthy chiropractor because of what happened during my first few treatments with him.
I was suffering from shoulder pain for more than half a year and felt extremely frustrated and helpless. Dr Neil Stakes' treatment and advice helped me to heal the pain and gave me confidence that I could work towards living a pain-free lifestyle.
I was referred to Dr Stakes by a trusted friend. I shared with Dr Stakes why I finally came to see him and expressed my commitment to get well. And it was comforting and assuring when I hear him expressed his commitment to help me get well.
Dr Neil Stakes is amazing! Only a few sessions with him, my girl’s motor Tics reduced and after a few more sessions, her Tics is completely gone and she’s able to lead a happy typical life again. He’s really good with kids too, my 6 years old girl loves to visit him ????
I have been a patient of Back II Life since 2006 when I was pregnant with my last child. Dr Leong has been very crucial in helping my body deal with a challenging pregnancy, and then post labour, during and after cancer. Many underlying issues have resolved over time. I have less and less need for remedies as my health has slowly built up over the years with the help of Dr Leong, with only some basic maintenance needed. Back II LIfe truly helps people to get back their life!
