You Don't Have to Live With Hip and Pelvic Pain

Pelvic girdle pain can often be confusing and hard to localize. It can include pain in your thighs, groin, hips, and low back. There can be many different causes of this type of pain.

One of the most common misconceptions is that pain caused by “Osteoarthritis”, “Joint Degeneration”, or “Disc Degeneration” is just part of getting old, or something that a person “just has to live with”. This is often NOT true! In fact, much of the pain associated with arthritis may be caused by tight or weak musculature, or by a different type of injury altogether. Your Kamloops Chiropractor will perform an in-depth examination to determine the exact source of your pain. Even if you think your pain is just caused by sore muscles, we can still help!! Talk to your chiropractor at Kamloops Active Health for further advice and information.

  • Knee Pain (ex: Runners’ Knee, Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, Patellar Tendonitis, IT Band Syndrome, Chondromalacia Patellae)
  • Hip Pain (ex: Bursitis, hip flexor strain)
  • Back Pain (Sacroiliac Joint Irritation, Muscle Strain)
