Resolving Hip Pain

January 19, 2016 By: Barbara Downes

Hip pain seems to be a women’s problem. In any given day I may have 20 women present with one hip or the other in various degrees of life-limiting pain that is chronic and debilitating. In 30 years I don’t think I’ve seen three men with the same. It is not exactly fair, but it…

…but then again, isn’t it always? Oops, sorry about that, I was starting to sound just like my brother for a minute. Those thoughts should not be uttered aloud… even if they are the deep-down truth. Why are you going to Brick Bodies, or any other gym for that matter? If you are anything like…
