Hip Pain and Replacement

Atrophied butt (gluteal) muscles can cause joint stress in the knees, low back (lumbar spine), and/or the hip. This can be a result of too much sitting and/or inappropriate and/or excessive exercise. Some individuals suffer from all three, but very rarely will all three hurt at the same time; this is known as The Pain Process.

Individuals who have hip pain usually have back pain and knee pain also. This can be daunting, overwhelming, and soul-crushing. Chronic pain can affect your emotional state and it is a constant reminder that something is wrong.

Let's be honest. Some people prefer surgery, and these types of individuals may benefit from hip replacement surgery in the short-term. But if you are not this person, then do
core exercises until your gluteal muscles are sore. I used to have hip pain and knee pain. When I started doing core exercises to fix my knee injury, my hip pain vanished. It was like a magic trick, only it wasn’t magic, it was core training.

Hip replacement surgery
IS invasive and life changing. Core training CAN BE life changing. Which one is right for you?
