Whether due to injury or natural age-related changes, hip pain can be seriously disruptive to your quality of life. When your hips act up, you can have a hard enough time getting out of a chair, let alone walking, running or doing your job.
When visiting a doctor or other health care professional for diagnosis and treatment of hip pain, some people are surprised to find their feet are contributing to a problem in the hips. This is because the musculoskeletal system in the lower body is highly connected in one long kinetic chain. If there is an issue in the biomechanics of the feet, it can actually cause misalignment in other areas, particularly the knees and hips.
Among other treatments such as stretches, posture improvement, rest and hot and/or cold compression therapy, orthotic insoles can be a common recommendation to correct the foot problems that may be related to hip pain.
