13 Oct Hip Pain: How An Expert Can Get To (and Fix) The Source of Your Pesky Problem.
Say goodbye to hip pain and get your groove back! Read on for our first blog post for our “The Usual Suspects” series on some of the most common sources of pain, dysfunction, and imbalances.
Know what isn’t hip? PAIN. And yet, we wake up with a shuffle, wince going up stairs, or feel a twinge or two tying our shoes. It’s common that hip dysfunction can cause pain in other joints or areas too—aren’t bodies fun? When it comes to hip dysfunction though, most of us can or will experience something funky at some point in time. “It’ll go away, I don’t have chronic pain,” or “I’m not that old!” are just a couple excuses we tell ourselves to avoid talking about one of our usual suspects in pain & dysfunction…HIP PAIN!
It’s a Joint Effort.
Your hip is no ordinary joint; it’s a powerhouse responsible for supporting your body weight and performing a ton of work daily. This isn’t a simple stubbed toe…hip dysfunction can really dig into your daily movement. The way we stand, sit, walk, run, bend, squat, even how we sleep, can all be affected by hip dysfunction, or can contribute to that hip pain over time. Hip pain can also find you really easily, and it’s usually the last symptom of a bigger problem. Bad posture? Constricting shoes? Maybe you need some custom orthotics? How can you really truly know without looking at every part of your body’s movements and function?
Another fun thing about pain is that it can bounce around like a wayward tennis ball, with our hips being the court, the net, the players, you name it! That’s where a health professional, like your friendly MYo Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Massage Therapist, or Personal Trainer, comes to the rescue.
