Hi everyone,
I went for a massage yesterday and was told when he began that he saw that my hips were out of alignment. Ok so what should i do about that. Do i go to my doctors? Would the massage help that. Could it be that my muscles are so tight on that one side that it was pulling my hip.I never thought to ask my massage therapist when he was finished if they had gotten back to normal place. I'm always in pain so i really wouldn't be able to tell if they were back to where they were supposed to be.Anyone have any suggestions

    out of alignment, or times when one leg is shorter than the other. With all of these situations, my physical therapist did some manipulations and I was given specific exercises to help that. Normally within a couple of days, things would be back to normal.

    When I had follow on flare ups, sometimes this would happen again. My doctors were aware of this and basically agreed that physical therapy was the answer.

    But as I always say, consult your doctor to be sure.
