What is hip pain?
This seems like an easy one, but what constitutes "the hip"? Go ahead and point to your hip - it's ok, I'll wait.
If you pointed to the side of your body where your back meets your leg, you're right. If you pointed to the back of your body, right below where people get those "butt dimples" you're also right. If you pointed to the front of your body, in the line of your groin, where your leg meets your abs, you're right again.
And guess what. Pain can be caused by all of those areas.
What can be done for those areas causing pain?
Back pain is an epidemic in the United States - if we aren't personally being affected by it, our parents, siblings, friends, and coworkers are. How many times has your hike, workout, or ski day been cancelled due to back pain? How many times will it be?
As widespread as back pain is, it is often misunderstood. People are quick to attribute their pain to structural changes such as herniated discs or decreased space between the vertebrae, but for many women the reality is that those structural changes often have nothing to do with your pain, and treating them alone (via surgery, back braces, or medication) won't keep back pain from interrupting your life.
