Uneven or Rotated Hips

Uneven Hips affects the pelvic, lumbar and thoracic areas of your spine.

Spending much of the day with your legs crossed can contribute to developing this condition, as can activities like carrying children on one hip, getting babies in and out of car seats, balancing shopping bags or carrying unbalanced loads in the garden

Long term uneven hip posture can lead to muscle imbalances and stress on the lumbar spine, sacrum and pelvis.  Misalignments of the lumbar spine can affect the proper functioning of the nerves, which can lead to numbness, tingling and associated pain.  The lumbar nerves connect directly to vital organs, tissues and cells; like the bladder, kidneys, reproductive organs and the muscles and ligaments of the legs and feet.  So it’s important to minimise and reduce stress to these areas of the spine for total well-being.
