The hip joint is one of the largest weight bearing joints in the human body. It allows us to carry out many of our daily activities. If you have hip pain caused by arthritis in your hip joints, this can make everyday activities, such as getting in and out of a chair, climbing stairs, or even putting on your socks and shoes, difficult if not outright impossible to do. For some sufferers, even just the act of sitting or lying down can cause pain in the hips.
Your hip joint is composed of two parts: the socket (acetabulum) and the head of the thigh bone (which fits into the socket).
A healthy hip joint works like a lubricated machine. That is, there is cartilage covering the head of the thigh bone, which allows the head to move freely without friction. This cartilage also acts as a shock absorber.
However, arthritis destroys the smooth functioning of your hip joint, resulting in severe hip pain. This happens as the cartilage covering the head (of the thigh bone) becomes atrophied (thin). As the cartilage is destroyed, the smooth operation of the hip joint is also destroyed. This is known as osteodegenerative arthritis.
What Really Causes Chronic Pain In The Hips?
When you read the medical literature, the most common causes cited for the development of pain in the hip(s), are; serious hip injury, auto immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, or simply aging. But there is another, even more common cause of pain in the hip, infrequently cited in medical literature. That cause is misalignments within the hip joint. This misalignment destroys the cartilage lining the head of the thigh bone in the same way that a car alignment problem destroys the tires.
The two most common causes of misalignment within the hip joint and resulting hip problems are the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
Both of these inherited, abnormal foot structures can be treated using a non invasive holistic therapy called Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy. The result of this therapy is a correction of the alignment within the hip joint. By correcting the alignment, the compression on the cartilage lining the head of the thigh bone is eliminated, which in turn, allows the cartilage to regenerate.
As the cartilage regenerates, the thigh bone can again move freely and unobstructed within the socket of the pelvis; much like a well lubricated machine. The pain in the hip is dramatically or totally eliminated without requiring hip replacement surgery.
Whether your chronic pain manifests as aching hips, acute hip pain, arthritis in your hip joints or any other hip problem, why struggle with temporary fixes and treatments for pain in the hips, like hip replacements, that only work in the short term?
As you learn more about my innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting muscle and joint pain.
