Lateral Hip Pain

Lateral hip pain is a very common condition amongst runners, cyclist and any participant in an activity that repetitively bends the knee. Diagnosing lateral hip pain can be quite complex as there are several causes. Here at your San Jose chiropractor we will take a stepwise approach to diagnosing your condition, including inspection, palpation, range of motion, stability and strength in all planes.
In addition we will perform multiple orthopedic tests to differentiate between several potential issues such as trochanteric bursitis, ITB syndrome and several other potential issues. If there is any doubt about the diagnosis an MRI can be ordered to provide more specific Information.
