"When you elevate the heels more so than you elevate the sole of the foot, you trigger a cascade of compensations in the knees and hips that cause tight hip flexors, and then those hip flexors cause lower-back pain."
-- Timothy Ferriss
Hip pain and inflammation can easily make one's life miserable. Each step you take will feel like needles piercing through your side. In fact, the pain can be so bad that it forces some individuals to stay in bed.
To understand the causes of hip pain you must first look at the skeletal structure of the region. The hip is a ball and socket joint where the femur connects to the thighbone. When everything is working correctly, the femur will slide into this groove with ease, allowing the individual to walk, run and move around. On the other hand, however, certain problems can arise where this ball and socket joint is no longer able to operate the way it should; therefore, resulting in pain, inflammation and general discomfort.
One of the most common causes of hip pain is arthritis. While anyone can develop arthritis in the hip, older people are placed at a far greater risk. Arthritis is generally characterized by the breakdown of supporting cartridge around the joint, which in turn results in inflammation and pain when the joint is moved. Unfortunately, there's no cure for arthritis as of yet, but a professional hypnotherapist can offer some relief of arthritis and other types of hip pain.
Bruises, fractures and other forms of trauma are also known to cause hip pain. As we age, the bones in our bodies become weaker and less durable. Simply falling down on the floor could be enough to fracture one of the bones in or around the hip joint, resulting in pain and discomfort. Some people automatically seek to have a hip replacement when this occurs, but it may heal on its own.
Hypnotherapy, however, can often give relief of hip pain. Regardless of its origin, pain is nothing more than neurological signals interpreted by the brain. The focus of hypnotherapy is to train the brain on a deep, subconscious level to no longer feel pain signals. So even if there's a physical condition that's causing the pain, hypnotherapy may be able to block/modify how the brain interprets it.
No one should be forced to live with hip pain. Even if it's only minor, the pain will likely continue to grow worse unless it's treated. Schedule an appointment with your hypnotherapist.
