Yes - because the hip is a large weight-bearing joint. Increased weight places additional pressure on the cartilage within the hip socket.

Hey there,

Yes ma'am, chiropractic care aims to "correct" and "relieve" your husband's low back pain by identifying the underlying cause of his symptoms and subsequently creating a treatment plan to correct, stabilize, and strengthen the involved area. Chiropractic care is a conservative treatment approach, and we chiropractors do not prescribe medication.

Stinging pain inside the neck

Hey there, I'm sorry to hear about the pain in your neck! Does your pain travel into your arms? Is there any numbness, tingling, or weakness associated with your neck or arms? READ MORE
Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear about the pain in your neck! Does your pain travel into your arms? Is there any numbness, tingling, or weakness associated with your neck or arms? If your pain is purely in the neck region (or upper back), then you may have what we call a "facet syndrome," which is jamming of the facet joints on the posterior (back) aspect of your cervical
spine. This will produce sharp pain that worsens upon certain movements - and the range of motion in your neck is likely altered. There are likely muscle spasms present as well. If this scenario is indeed what's happening, then chiropractic adjustments to restore proper alignment and mobility in the cervical spine should help. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,

Dr. Munse
