Having dealt with debilitating hip pain at one point in my life, I know what it’s like.
I also know how to put an end to the vicious cycle of seemingly never-ending pain and symptoms, which is the topic of today’s post.
Symptoms of the hip include labral tears, FAI, bursitis, joint degeneration, arthritis, popping, and instability.
What is the true cause of hip pain?
Is it age? Genetics? Wear and tear?
If it was these things, then wouldn’t both hips be worn down?
Check out the following picture of Function Freddie. Notice how his body is erect and even on both sides. This is how we’re supposed to look!
When this straight alignment gets lost, we end up with pain.
But how do we get to be misaligned?
Is this how you spend most of your day?
This is what we were designed to do:
How can you eliminate the pain?
Common treatments include rest, ice, drugs, injections, physical therapy, and even surgery.
Here’s a better question:
What’s the cure?
The before and after photos above are of a woman that worked with me over Skype to eliminate her hip pain.
The progress photo on the right was taken twelve days after the first visit. This woman practiced a daily set of exercises to re-balance her body.
The exercises weren’t just any old exercises, and no, we didn’t use weights or stretchy bands or painful lacrosse balls or rolly gadgets or devices of any sort. I put her through a series of movements and positions to stimulate both halves of her body evenly, and to remind the front half of her body how to balance out with the back half of her body.
Her body did the rest.
The end result is she eliminated her pain!
Our body can heal itself if given the opportunity.
Bones do what muscles tell them to do.
