Does your leg frequently feel out of joint or stuck?

 Does it require a great deal of effort simply walking to the bus stop or grocery store?

Previous or current sports, slips and falls, and sitting or standing excessively without much movement in between can all be causes of hip and leg issues. For some people, you may just wake up one day and feel in pain. It’s possible and more common than you’d think to put yourself out of alignment without even knowing you did it. Hip and leg pain shows more prevalence in men and women beginning in their 50s and 60s but can be experienced by anyone.

Why People Struggle with Hip & Leg Pain

It’s no wonder in our comfort-centric world we are seeing many people struggle with hip and leg issues. We are seeing people often sitting on comfortable chairs instead of ergonomic ones, sitting on our phones and wallets, and sitting cross-legged or just with one foot up; all of these things create extra, and often uneven, pressure and stress on the discs of your spine. 

Excellent posture is key to avoiding experiencing hip and leg pain, as is proper biomechanics from top to bottom and from bottom to top! If you’re a very active individual, you may find the overuse of your bottom half is taking a toll on you. Contrarily, if you find yourself at a desk job where you’re sitting for 8 hours a day, you may find the lack of mobility and the compression on your spine to bother your hips and legs after a while.

How to Heal Hip & Leg Pain

It isn’t always easy, time effective or even possible to heal yourself all on your own. You are likely to find that you need chiropractic care to realign your spine and put your body on the road to recovery; additionally, a Chiropractor will help you rule out other issues behind the symptoms like sciatica, pinched nerve, etc., so you can be certain of what you’re dealing with and treat it appropriately. Your body is not able to properly heal itself when the nervous system isn’t in a position to communicate the way it’s meant to, due to misalignments. It’s like a game of broken telephone.

Failure to address hip and leg problems early on can result in some serious long-term health complications. Having hip and leg pain often forces you to limp to alleviate your pain on your afflicted side; this causes you to place extra pressure and stress on your non-injured side and can lead to further misalignment and injury. At worst, it can lead to severe joint degeneration and in certain cases, a need for a hip replacement.
