“Is Your Hip Causing Your Knee Or Back Pain? ” Effective Hip & Knee Pain Relief
Do you find yourself getting up in the morning stiff and having to move slowly? Do you also find yourself having to stop and rest after standing awhile or walking a distance due to back or knee pain? Whether you feel pain occurring in your back, buttocks, thighs or knees your hip joints could be the culprit. The hip is an incredible joint in your body that has to rotate while absorbing shock with every step. The hip joint is made up of your femur bone, which has a ball on the top and the socket of your pelvis. It is held in place by thick ligaments, which wrap around the joint, giving it stability, yet allowing it to move through a large range of motion. It’s What You Don’t Do… If you sit frequently at a computer, watching TV or just being less active, your hip ligaments will tighten up over time. However, even if you are an active person, but don’t stretch, this can also tighten the hip ligaments. Ultimately, your hips have to be flexible on a daily basis for your body to function normally.
