Cutting-edge Treatments for Hip Pain

Divergent’s Calgary Health Clinic can help you overcome hip pain. We offer a multidimensional approach to hip pain treatment that combines multiple modalities:

Focused Shockwave

Focused Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy provides a drug-free option for relieving hip pain. It utilizes targeted deep sound waves to stimulate blood flow in the injured tissues around your hip joint, promoting tissue repair, reducing inflammation, and easing pain and stiffness. Shockwave therapy can be a valuable component of a comprehensive treatment plan for hip issues.  Divergent is the only clinic in Alberta to offer focal shockwave a very effective tool in resolving chronic injuries.

Radial Shockwave

Radial Shockwave Therapy

Radial shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses high-energy acoustic waves to stimulate healing in injured tissues. These shockwaves help to break down scar tissue, increase blood flow, and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. By targeting the source of pain, radial shockwave therapy can alleviate discomfort and improve mobility.

Robotic Laser Therapy

Robotic Laser Therapy

Laser therapy offers an innovative approach to managing hip pain. Low-level lasers target the source of the discomfort, and laser energy penetrates tissue to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and improve blood flow to the area. This can decrease pain and stiffness, allowing for better mobility in the hip joint.

TECAR Radio-frequency

TECAR Radio-frequency

Deep tissue therapy radio-frequency therapy uses radio waves to deliver heat deep to areas around your joints. This energy improves blood flow, reduces inflammation, and stimulates healing in the surrounding tissues. TECAR therapy can help ease discomfort and improve joint mobility by promoting tissue repair and reducing pain sensitivity.

Medical Management

Medical Management

Addressing hip pain may include various strategies, such as medications to reduce inflammation and alleviate discomfort, lifestyle adjustments like weight management, and ergonomic changes to minimize strain. Our team of experienced doctors and physiotherapists will tailor a personalized approach for you.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy can treat hip pain through a multi-pronged approach. Manual therapy techniques applied by physiotherapists loosen stiff muscles and improve flexibility around the hip joint. Targeted exercises can strengthen the muscles supporting the hip. This improved strength translates to better stability and reduced pain.

Chiropractic Therapy

Chiropractic Therapy

Divergent’s experienced chiropractors can improve joint mobility and alignment in the hips and spine by using manual adjustments to alleviate pressure on nerves. Soft tissue therapies can relax muscles and reduce inflammation around the hip joint, resulting in pain relief and improved hip function.

ARX Alpha Strength Training

ARX Alpha Strength Training

ARX Alpha delivers precise oscillations and vibrations to the hip area, stimulating blood flow and promoting tissue regeneration. Through its gentle yet powerful action, ARX Alpha helps reduce inflammation, relieve muscle tension, and improve joint mobility. This comprehensive approach can provide pain relief while supporting long-term healing and enhanced function in the hip joint.

ARX Omni Rehab Training

ARX Omni Rehab Training

ARX Omni stimulates blood flow and promotes tissue regeneration in the hip area through controlled movements. By gently mobilizing the affected tissue, it helps to reduce inflammation, alleviate muscle tension and improve joint flexibility.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a regenerative treatment that involves injecting a concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors directly into the hip joint. These components can stimulate tissue repair and reduce inflammation, leading to less pain and improved hip function.

Injectable Pain Therapy

Injectable Pain Therapy

Injectable pain therapy directly targets the source of hip discomfort. Medications are injected near inflamed tissues or nerves, reducing inflammation and interrupting pain signals. This targeted approach can provide quick relief and improve mobility in the hip joint, allowing for participation in physical therapy for a more lasting recovery.

EMSCULPT NEO

EMSCULPT NEO

EMSCULPT helps with hip pain by stimulating robust muscle contractions in the core, which can enhance posture and bolster spinal support. By doing so, it can alleviate hip pain associated with bulging discs. Additionally, EMSCULPT can improve local blood circulation, which can help relieve inflammation in the hip area. 

Bracing & Posture Correction

Bracing & Posture Correction

Correcting posture can positively impact hip pain by reducing strain on the hip joints and surrounding muscles. Maintaining proper alignment helps distribute weight evenly, preventing excessive pressure on the hips. Consistent good posture habits can also help prevent further hip issues and improve overall hip health and function.

Kinesiology

Kinesiology

Kinesiology analyzes and improves body movement patterns, which can alleviate stress on joints and muscles. It uses techniques such as muscle testing and corrective exercises to address imbalances and weaknesses that may contribute to pain. By enhancing functional movement and posture, kinesiology can reduce the likelihood of injury and chronic pain.

Rapid Neuro Fasical Reset

Rapid Neuro Fasical Reset

Rapid Neuro Fascial Reset targets and releases tension in the fascia, the connective tissue surrounding muscles. By applying precise and focused pressure, RNFR interrupts the pain cycle and promotes the rehydration and reorganization of the fascial fibers. This process enhances mobility and reduces pain by restoring proper function to the affected areas. Additionally, RNFR can stimulate the nervous system, helping to recalibrate pain perception and further diminish discomfort.

Causes & Symptoms of Hip Pain

Hip pain can arise from various causes, ranging from injuries to chronic conditions. Acute injuries such as fractures, dislocations, or strains often result from traumatic events like falls or accidents. These injuries can cause sudden-onset hip pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty bearing weight. Chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or bursitis can also lead to hip pain. In osteoarthritis, the breakdown of cartilage in the hip joint results in pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.

Hip pain can disrupt sleep and daily activities, impacting overall quality of life. Symptoms often include discomfort in the hip joint, groin, buttocks, or thigh area. This pain may be dull, aching, or sharp and can worsen with movement or weight-bearing activities. Individuals may also experience stiffness, reduced range of motion, or difficulty walking or standing for extended periods. In some cases, hip pain may radiate to the knee or lower back, indicating referred pain from the hip joint. 

Multimodal Strategies for Hip Pain Treatment in Calgary

The traditional unidimensional approach to hip pain treatment focuses on medicines to alleviate pain or prevent bone loss. This approach may not offer relief to patients who are experiencing hip pain due to injury or trauma. Similarly, physiotherapy cannot help a patient alleviate hip pain due to the weakening of bones (osteoarthritis). It is important to identify the cause and then use a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological modalities to relieve pain and restore mobility.

Additionally conservative or traditional physiotherapy utilizes an exercise based approach exclusively. We at Divergent understand that chronic conditions of hip pain or dysfunction when reached a certain stage will not respond with exercise alone and may even be aggravated by certain movements. These stages of hip dysfunction require a treatment based approach first before any prescription of exercise should be implemented.
