Well, it’s more thana catchy tune; it’s also an accurate anatomy lesson. Everything is connected, and spinal misalignments in the low back can trigger hip pain.It only takes one train car to skip the rail to derail an entire train. And itonly takes one misaligned spinal bone (vertebra) to launch a chain reaction, causing misalignment in the pelvis, hips and rest of the lower body.Fortunately, Drs. Klein and Spencer know how to get patients’ spinesback on track! A series of gentle maneuvers known as chiropractic adjustments realigns the hips and the spine.Drs. Klein and Spencer start by identifying the source of hip pain. Thisis accomplished by reviewing patients’ medical histories and conductingphysical examinations to determine if the discomfort is actually referredpain - meaning that its source is elsewhere in the body, such as the spine- or if it is, indeed, emanating from the hip joint itself.In one study published in the Journal of Manipulative and PhysiologicalTherapeutics, a patient undergoing chiropractic care experienced a “decrease in the pain and an improvement in the flexibility and strength thatled to an improved (walking) pattern and decreased pain.”To find out more about our chiropractic’s winning approach to endinghip pain and other disorders, call Drs. Albert Klein and Ross Spencer,chiropractors and holistic-care providers, at (570) 675-3833 today. Drs.Roberta & Albert Klein use a new Soft Touch Adjusting Technic withoutthe twisting or cracking.
