Do you suffer from chronic hip and low back pain? Tired of the chronic pain cycle without lasting relief from traditional forms of therapy? Maybe you're overlooking the bigger issue. Your overall postural imbalances may be at the root cause of the problem.
Hip and low back pain are a dangerous couple. When they strike, they affect your ability to walk, run, dance and accomplish your activities of dailiy living. Symptoms may include but are not limited to:
- Hip joint pain
- Arthritic and/or degenerative hip and spine
- Groin pain and tightness
- Burning in hip and into leg (inner thigh)
- Muscle soreness, strain,
- Limping, Limited ability to walk, sit, stand properly
- Low, Mid or Upper Back Pain
- S-I Joint Pain
- Stiffness, Spasms, or Locked back
- Burning or numbing sensations in the legs
Your body was designed to move and in today's comfort driven society, we move less than ever.
Our culture of convenience has created a motion starved society. Did you know that the average American sits for 9.3 hours/day (which is even more than what we spend each night sleeping)!
Take for example a desk job where the body is forced into one fixed movement pattern for multiple hours/day - sitting. It is well documented that most musculoskeletal and joint pain originate from postural imbalances within the body.
The human body is NOT designed for prolonged periods of sitting. It creates imbalances within our muscular system, and our major load joints, pelvis and spine take the toll. Compensations and dysfunctions occur and "bones do what the muscles tell them to", meaning, they can shift out of their proper position and function if left unattended to.
Dangers of Prologned Sitting
Did you know that as soon as you sit the electrical activity in the leg muscles shuts off, calorie burning drops down to 1 cal/minute, enzymes that help break down fat drops by 90%, and ffter 2 hours, good cholesterol drops 20%?
Yikes! Now think about the damage that can occur after years.
You can see how easy it would be to develop tight, short hip flexors or a rigid and inflexible upper back. Pain can settle into the hips and low back just as easily show up in your knee(s), shoulder(s) or neck.
Treating the site of the symptom WILL NOT fix the pain long term. In order to tackle the issue you must address the body as a unit. This is what set's corrective exercise programming apart.
