Hip and leg pain can be caused by many different factors. However, one-sided/unilateral issues such as: pain on one side of your leg, one knee, or one ankle; can usually be traced up to the lower back. This is because if the lower back is displaced it “throws off” an individuals entire pelvis. Thus, when someone’s pelvis is un-balanced it very commonly puts abnormal pressure and weight on one side of the body versus the other side.
At Align Chiropractic, we take very detailed measurements of the lower back and pelvis on every patient that presents with hip or leg pain. By doing so, this gives us a good indication if the hip and leg pain is, in fact, being caused by the lower back and pelvis imbalances.
If you have hip and/or leg pain and have not received a full structural examination of your lower back and pelvis, you may want to schedule an appointment to see if Structural Corrective Chiropractic care can help.
