My Story of Hip Pain & Healing from Gyrotonic® Movement
I was a runner for many years. Having been obese as an adolescent it helped me to control my weight and my appetite. And, more importantly, it felt good. I had my first son when I was 40 years old. I knew returning to a healthy weight was going to be more challenging for me, so I worked hard to get in the best shape possible for my 2nd pregnancy. I was able to run until I was 6 months pregnant with my 2nd son who was born when I was 42. With 2 young boys 25 months apart, running became an important stress releaser VITAL to my well-being. Unfortunately, I began suffering from chronic hip pain in my right hip and in my big toe joints. It’s not easy to take care of your kids when it hurts to walk. I tried everything I knew to deal with this discomfort so I could continue running. A physical therapist eventually prescribed orthotics to take weight off my emerging bunions and a lift in my right shoe to deal with what he considered to be a leg length discrepancy. The orthotics and the lift allowed me to keep running, which is what I wanted. I had no idea what the cost would be in the long run. Eventually my hip pain returned and remained, so my chiropractor suggested I try something new; GYROTONIC® Movement. What?! Never heard of it. Read the full article…
