When it comes to alignment of the spine, often times people only think of the vertebrae that make up this very important aspect of our beings. What about our hips? How does the spine and chiropractic treatments affect our hips? Well, let us explain.
The alignment of our spine is important for keeping our body able and functioning. If our spine is out of alignment, it can cause pain in other parts of our body such as our hips and knees. When the spine is not aligned properly, our hips tend to be uneven. This means that one side can be higher or lower than the other. This misalignment can cause a person to walk with an abnormal gate, have pain in the hips and knees, or be uncomfortable in general.
In order to combat this misalignment, one can choose to see a chiropractor. If so, a chiropractor will adjust a patient over a series of appointments to regain proper alignment. This will align the hips back to their proper place and remove any discomfort the patient was having.
If you or someone you know is having pain in their hips or joint, tell them to come on in to Wellness Plus. We would love to see what we can do to help!
