The hip joint is one of the most complex joints in the body.  It is estimated that over 30% of the population suffers from hip pain.  Swelling and stiffness can range from mildly irritating to complete disability.  Inflammation is the cause of these symptoms, limiting mobility in the joint.  Aging can be a factor as well, flexible tissues in the body lose their elasticity with age.  Left untreated inflammation around tendons and cartilage will heal with scar tissue and cause joint deterioration.

What are my Treatment Options?

Laser therapy combined with gentle chiropractic care has been proven to help repair deterioration and restore mobility.

Bioflex Laser therapy is effective therapy in reducing pain caused  by inflammation.  Laser therapy uses red light to relieve pain, increase blood flow and allowing the body to reduce inflammation.   The infrared light is used to accelerate the healing process, stimulating on a cellular level.  When the light source is placed against the skin, the photons penetrate several centimeters and get absorbed by the mitochondria, the energy producing part of the cell.  This energy fuels many positive physiological responses resulting in the restoration of normal cell function.

Some benefits to laser therapy:

  • Reduction of Pain
  • Substantial Increase in Mobility and Range of Motion
  • Enabling Patient to Resume Normal Physical Activities


“Since childhood horses have been my passion.  For 6 years my pain has prevented me from riding horses.  Over the years my shoulder had began giving me problems.  My farrier recommended that I come to Cruz Life Center.  Almost immediately my pain got better.  Last weekend we had a huge horse chow in Yadkenville, NC.  I was able to ride my horse without pain in my hip or shoulder.  For the first time in 6 years I enjoyed my ride!  It is definitely worth trying.  You will see the difference.”  …JR, Marshall, NC
