The Bad Old Hip (and What to Do about it)

There aren’t too many daily activities that don’t require the use of your hips. The hip is a ball and socket joint that connects your legs to your pelvis. If you have been suffering from hip pain, even walking around the house can be difficult. However, is that bad old hip a result of age or joint imbalance?

Chronic hip pain has historically been treated with injections or even hip replacements. These invasive treatments have been performed tens of thousands of times per year, with mixed results. Thankfully, new research has begun to show that proper maintenance of your hips may be able to save you from the scalpel.  When your low back, hips, and pelvis are balanced and have a full range of motion, your hips will have equal wear and tear, and they’re designed to last a lifetime! Researchers have found that adjustments to the low back and hips can improve hip pain by over 60% and provide a statistically significant improvement in range of motion.

  • Low impact exercise and adjustments can improve range of motion and reduce your pain.
  • Research has shown improvement in hip pain by over 60% after chiropractic adjustments.
  • Adjustments have been shown to be over 30% more effective than exercise for easing the pain of hip osteoarthritis.

If you know someone who has a “hitch in their giddy-up,” invite them to our upcoming workshop where we will provide actionable health tips on how they can improve their quality of life without dangerous medications and risky surgery.

Testimonials

 Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!
