A Chiropractor uses manual adjustments to treat pain and improve function in the musculoskeletal system. If your hip pain is due to a problem with your spine, a Chiropractor may be a good choice.

An Osteopath takes a more holistic approach and considers the relationship between the body’s structure and function. Osteopath’s use manual techniques to improve circulation, reduce swelling, and balance the body. If your hip pain is caused by posture or musculoskeletal alignment, an osteopath may be a good choice.
