Hip Pain and Neurosomatic Therapy
1. Neurosomatic Therapy demonstrates how hip pain develops due to the effects of postural imbalance.
2. The extensive postural analysis provided by Neurosomatic Therapy targets the causes of hip pain.
3. Structural injury/damage can be prevented or relieved with postural balancing.
4. Neurosomatic Therapy provides measurable results in alleviating hip pain.
Causes of Hip Pain
Pain in the groin and inside of the hip tends to indicate issues with the joint itself. Pain in the outer hip, buttock, and upper thigh tend to be caused by issues in other areas such as the lower back or knees. This is called referred pain. Our study of posture and its relation to pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction fills a large void in the explanation of hip pain and, we believe, is the key to understanding the soft tissue pain that is generally characterized as idiopathic.
Effective, Non-Surgical Treatment for Hip Pain
With respect to hip pain, postural correction through Neurosomatic Therapy addresses sources of pain that are considered “structural” as well as purely muscular issues. For example, you may have a slight leg length discrepancy which causes the hips to misalign. By correcting the leg length using a simple lift in the shoe, posture can be corrected to restore balance in the hip, resolving the pain. There are many factors that can contribute to the muscular imbalances involved in chronic hip pain but, more importantly, recognizing the postural imbalance, which muscles are involved and applying treatment techniques to normalize the imbalance are vital to eliminating hip pain. Neurosomatic Therapy takes a systematic, measurable and efficient approach to postural balance.
