Knee pain and Hip pain
Knee pain and hip pain seem to creep up on people gradually, they begin with occasional discomfort that comes and goes, so you tolerate and ignore it until it gets progressively worse and aggravates other parts of the body as you compensate for the pain and change how you walk. The exception to this is an injury of some description, a fall or tackle – some trauma. If ignored, osteoarthritis can develop.
Depending on where the pain is and whether the knee or hip has full constant range of movement it can indicate what’s going on. Believe it or not knee pain and hip pain can be due to your back or your feet not moving correctly. If the back and pelvis are out of alignment your weight is not distributed evenly. That puts more pressure through different parts of the knee joint, hip joint and the surrounding structures causing them to become painful – easily resolved. Flat feet can also put pressure through the knees to for a similar reason. Poorly functioning feet can also cause back, hip, neck and shoulder pain.
If this is ignored then more long-term damage inside the joint is likely (and common in the hip), this is called osteoarthritis. If you don’t want it don’t ignore it!Call now for a FREE no obligation chat
