I’ve encountered so many people with back pain and hip pain recently that I had to make a video about it. If you, or someone you know, is going through this right now, take a look at this post.
It started innocently enough for me. I started having a little bit of low back pain on February 7th. Nothing major, but I could tell that I made my back mad. it started feeling a little better before I took my trip. I had to sit in a cramped airplaine, sit in a conference room for 2 – 3 days, and then fly back home. My luggage had horrible wheels on it, so I often had to carry it, but it wasn’t too bad. I actually felt pretty good when I got home. Shortly after that, things turned worse.
My lower back really started hurting and then the pain started shifting to my right hip. i worked on stretching some, and then I sneezed. When I sneezed it not only irrirtated my hip more, but it also irrittated my back on the other side of the spine. I’m fortunate enough that I know medical professionals in just about every profession. I know some of the best general practitioners, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and an osteopath. ( I visited every single professional and will write on that experience in an upcoming article.) The big criteria I was aiming for was to get through it without medication. I was suffering some severe hip pain at times, but I made it through without taking medication and can honestly say that I feel really good right now. In fact, I hiked 9 miles of trails on Saturday and feel better today than I did last week. How does that sound for doing better?
So since I am now coming out of my pain, and it seems like everyone else is still having pain, I decided to make a little video for you. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.
