“The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it.”- Maimonides

Many of us know someone who suffers from chronic low back or hip pain. The regular course of care seems to be pain-relievers, muscle relaxants or worse surgery. Is low back or hip pain caused by being born with not enough medicine in the body? No. Medicine can temporarily cover the problem but often times does not fix the underlying cause. Without fixing the cause, the pain almost always returns. Because low back and hip pain can hinder any daily activities, people often overcompensate with pain medications. This is dangerous because often times the types pain medicine being prescribed can be highly addictive and lead to dependency or further complications.


Low back and hip pain are both symptoms, they’re the body’s way of alerting us that something is wrong. Low back and hip pain begin with some sort of stress. These stressor can be physical, emotional or chemical in nature. Stress, regardless of type, causes vertebral subluxations. These subluxations keep the spine locked in an unatural and detrimental position which can and often will prevent the nervous system from working properly. Symptoms like back and hip pain can be a result. Removing subluxations can relieve pain and often address the source of the problem, without the use of drugs.

So, what exactly is a subluxation? A subluxation is a condition in which a spinal segment is out of alignment with the adjacent segment. Nerves, which branch off of the spinal cord and exit the spine adjacent to these segments, no longer properly transmit information. Subluxations lock a joint’s motion reducing the amount of nutrition it gets and can lead to early degeneration of both the joint and the disc. This leads to the body receiving more pain stimuli. The person already in pain begins to feel worse. So, this presentation of low back and hip pain often begins after a subluxation has been present for quite some time. This is similar to the way that you don’t know you have a cavity in a tooth until you need a filling. Therefore, just because someone feels healthy, does not mean they are healthy.

Many everyday physical stressors can lead to low back and hip subluxations without us knowing.

Performed upon hard flooring, this household chore done while bending at the waist, instead of standing upright, places great strain upon the low back. Clue: The industrial type needs to be wrung out.

For example many people who mop do so by bending at the waist instead of standing upright which puts excessive and often times unnoticed strain on their low back. The mopper should stand in a slight lunge to prevent bending and twisting. Their hips and shoulders should move in the direction of, and along with, the arms’ motion.

Another example is when parents carry their baby on their hips. Often this is a hard-to-break habit that subluxates the lumbar spine and pelvis. A sling or carrier saves the spine, frees the hands and as an added bonus there is research shows that a baby may cry less, feel most safe, and be most alert.

One more example. Hungry? Perhaps someone does this household chore three times a day. They should not do it while bending from the waist. Clue: The word also refers to a circular item installed on a roof, which enables cable television.

What is: Doing the dishes! The washer should not bend over the sink to reach the dishes. Dishes should be placed upon a top-of-sink dish rack, so bending is not required.

Flip-flops or any flat shoe with no cushioned-heel are easy to wear but can have adverse effects on our posture and spinal health. In these our feet are left to absorb the shock of walking which is transferred unnaturally up the body. Body weight shifts to the sides of feet, subluxating the pelvis.

These are only a few types of stresses that can subluxate the spine, causing low back and hip pain. Removing subluxations can relieve pain and strain, without the use of drugs.
