In general, the answer is, "No," however, since your hip is already hurting, and we are going to have to make some changes in order to help you, it can be tender. Every chiropractor uses different procedures to help their patients, and some are more physical than others. I always tell my patients that the treatment should not be really painful, but if it is to tell me so I can
lighten up, stop, or do something different. Even if they just don't like the specific treatment, I want them to tell me because there are many ways to help people to get better. As far as your age goes, I treat people from newborns to those in their nineties. Treatment is modified for the age and condition of the patient. It is really good that you are going in to get help.
