The first thing to do if you’ve got Hip Pain
is Search for the Cause!
Most people don’t know where to look. Their doctor doesn’t know where to look either. The advice of the radiologist is useless. All they do is send a note to your doctor telling them what’s happened without giving any advice as to what’s caused what’s happened.
You spend years being rubbed, crunched, heated and vibrated, mostly at the spot where it hurts. You spend years swallowing anti-inflammatory and pain killing tablets like they’re going out of fashion. In all this time no-one will bother to tell you what’s the underlying cause of your pain.
The pain gets worse.
Sooner of later you chuck it in, cut your losses and have a hip replacement.
In all that time no-one bothered to give you a schedule of strength and flexibility exercises designed tot attack the cause of the problem.
Welcome to the Fix Hip Pain ebook in which I’ll provide you with clues as to what’s causing your hip pain.
What I’ve got for you is a set of strength and flexibility exercises that will help you to restore poor function to good.
When the function is good, there’s a good chance you’ll be pain free.
So, what’s the UNDERLYING cause of hip pain?
If you've got hip pain there is a good chance that your pelvis is out of alignment. It could be tilted forward or back. It could have rotated clockwise or anti-clockwise. One side maybe lower than the other.
How does it happen?
- Years of inactivity. It’s called motion starvation.
- It comes with years of spending most of the day sitting down and years without a strength and flexibility program that’s designed to keep the body in good alignment.
- It may come as a result of hand and foot dominance. Every time you kick, throw and hit you rotate your body in the same direction.
- It could come as a result of the way you sit in your car, twisted with one foot on the accelerator.
Most people with hip pain don’t exercise at all. Most people with hip pain are never given a set of exercises and if they are they’ll spend less than five minutes a day doing them. That’s certainly not the rehab regime of a professional sportsperson who would spend just about all day in some sort of rehab program. In one club that I know they run a 24-hours-a-day rehab program.
How long is it going to take to get better?
Most people expect they’re going to get better in a couple of days. If it doesn’t happen they give it away.
I have to tell you, it’s highly likely that the re-aligning process is going to take months, not days.
Most people want someone to do something to them. It doesn’t work that way either.
I’ll be honest with you. If you want to relieve your hip pain you have to be the driver of your own rehab program. You can’t expect to get better by just having someone do something to you, whether it’s rubbing, crunching, heating, vibrating or doping.
You have to do something to yourself. That something is embarking on a regular and systematic strength and flexibility training program. It’s the foundation of good musculo-skeletal, on which all other therapies rest.
So what’s the immediate cause of hip pain?
Once the pelvis is out of alignment it’s impossible for the thigh bone to fit snugly into the hip socket. Ligaments, tendons and muscles around the hip area are stretched beyond their pain threshold. The end of the femur rubs against the hip bone causing first friction and then inflammation of the bones. The result of this friction goes by the name ‘arthritis’, ‘arthro’ being Latin for bone and ‘itis’ being Greek for inflammation.
So, despite what the arthritics charities tell you, arthritis doesn’t come from out of the blue, it’s the nature reaction of a bearing wearing out. Most bearings wear out because they are out of alignment. Just ask any mechanic.
In fact if motor mechanics took the same approach to fixing a wheel alignment problem as doctors take to fixing hip alignment problem they’d be out of business in a few weeks.
How do you know if you’re out of alignment?
You can see the effect of this twisting, tilting and rotating by looking at yourself in the mirror.
You'll be able to test how much you are out of alignment by using our diagnostic instruments. Here are three of them.
The drawings illustrate good form and function. If you've got hip pain there is a high likelihood that when you get into these postures you may find them difficult to do, and/or you may experience pain.
If you want hip pain relief you need to know that there are many muscles involved in the misalignment of your hips - muscles that move the legs together and apart, the muscles on the front of your body that allow you to lift your legs up, the muscles on the back side of your body, your hamstring and buttock muscle, muscles in your lower back ...
In fact there are muscles all around your hips and legs that only have to be a bit too tight or a bit too weak and the hip joints will be compromised.
Added to that, if you've got hip pain there's a good chance your feet and ankles won't be and square when you're standing or walking; your leg bones won’t be in good alignment.
The hip bearings are two of the most susceptible bearings in the body to wearing out and appear much more difficult to get back into alignment that the bones of the spinal column.
And once you’re hips and legs are out of alignment, every step is doing you harm.
Here’s what I’ve got for you in the Fix Hip Pain ebook.
- I’ll give you information that will help you to work out the likely underlying causes of your hip pain. It’s highly likely that there will be more than one cause.
- I’ll show you some of the key exercises I think you need to do to get you get your hips and legs back into better alignment and in a pain-free state.
- I’ll outline a strategy designed to get you back into action as quickly as possible. This strategy will rely on an intensive rehab program and the synergistic effect of a wide range of modalities and actions you can take. A few percentage points here, a few percentage points there will all mount up toward quickly restoring poor function to good.
The foundation of this program is the strength and flexibility exercises I’ve got for you. Most of these exercises you can do in your own lounge room while you watch TV.
Hip pain, fitness problem or medical problem?
Hip pain is a fitness problem, not a medical problem and you can’t solve a fitness problem with a medical solution.
The best way to attack the problem is with a fitness solution and that involves a program to strengthen weak muscles and loosen tight muscles. If you think you can fix hop pain without a regular and systematic strength and flexibility training program you’ve got another think coming.
I won’t beat around the bush, to be effective, these exercises take time - up to a couple of hours a day, most of which can be done lying down while you watch TV.
Most people aren’t prepared to put in the time. They don’t do the exercises for long enough, they don’t do them often enough. But I can tell you, if you’re serious about fixing your hip pain you’ll willingly spend an hour or two every night doing the exercises I recommend and in a couple of months you can expect to notice the difference.
Gradually over the weeks and months you’ll get your pelvis and leg bones back into better alignment. When that happens the pain dissipates.
What about the strength training program
Most people never strengthen the muscles around their pelvis and legs; never. About the most strenuous activity in their lives is getting up out of a chair.
A couple of years ago I was renovating a house, and my left hip became painful. I blame getting in and out of the Falcon utility which is much lower that our other car. In out, in out, day after day and gradually the hip started feeling more and more painful.
I embarked on the stretching program in the evenings. Things got a bit better, but the breakthrough came at the gym when I started using the multi-hip machine. After six months the pain gradually dissipated as the muscles around my hip became stronger and took more responsibility for the work they’re meant to do.
I’m still doing the exercises, it’s part of my regular gym routine.
‘You say, ‘Six months, is it going to take that long?’ Yes, it might take that long. It could be less, it could be more. In the past I’ve had a shoulder that took a year to come good, but 15 years later it’s still good. It’s strong and flexible. I’m still doing the exercises that fixed it up.
Is this a quick fix?
Nope! Critical in all of this is the fact that you can’t expect a quick fix. The process of alignment happens very gradually, over the weeks and months, nanometer by nanometer.
Just as hips don’t get out of alignment over night, you can’t expect them to become painless over night either.
What you’ve signed up for is a program that could take months before you are happy with the results. It requires doing exercises on a daily basis for an hour or more. As I’ve already said, many of the exercises can be done on the floor while watching TV, reading a book or drifting off with the fairies! They are not onerous.
Is this a quack fix?
Definitely not and I’ll tell you why. In most cases hip pain is a fitness problem generated by a lack of strength and flexibility which in turns leads to misalignment of the legs and pelvis. The hip bearings start to wear out.
You can’t solve a fitness problem with a junk medical solution where a drug is used to mask the pain.
You can’t solve a fitness problem with a rub down and a crunch.
Nor can you outsource your strength and flexibility training program to someone else.
However, I do acknowledge that if your hip is completely shot you’ll need a hip replacement or a hip resurfacing. That’s one of the miracles of modern medicine and you can be thankful to be living in times when you can access this medical marvel. My grandmother put up with unbearable hip pain for 40 years.
Is this a Cheap Fix?
Yep, it sure is. You can purchase the Fix Hip Pain ebook for $7us.
I have the belief that for 80% of people there’s an 80% chance they can get their hips back to 80% of good condition - if they’re diligent. Most people would be happy with these odds.
But I’ll be straight with you, for some people this program may not work, for any number of reasons, the principal ones being the condition is too far gone or you fail to put in the time doing the exercises.
If you do the exercises I recommend, as often as I recommend and for as long as I recommend, in 80 days you’ll be feeling much better. If you’re not, I’ll refund your money and apologise to you for wasting your time.
In a nutshell, what I’m going to do is:
- give you a set of exercises that gets your hips back into alignment and better supported by the muscles around it.
- save you a fortune pouring money into the pockets of therapists.
- teach you to become your own therapist.
