Did you know that if your hips are out of place or out of balance that your whole body could too be out of balance?
Amazingly that problem in your neck and shoulders could all stem from the hips and your glutes?
We at Angel Loving Care spend most of our working lives dealing with clients aches and pains and this is one of the most frequent complaints we often find when dealing with on going bad backs and shoulders...
The glute muscles stabilise your pelvis during running and walking. You need strong glutes to help with hip extension and forward propulsion. Proper alignment of the pelvis, torso and legs also depend on strong glutes. If your glutes are not strong, your entire lower body alignment may fall out of balance -- causing problems such as Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, runner’s knee and iliotibial band syndrome. When the glutes are not strong enough to do their job of extending the hip and pushing the body forward, other muscles not as well designed for the job take over. The hamstrings, low back, quadriceps and calves may become disproportionately strong therefore increasing your risk of injury.
Strong glutes support the back. When your glutes are not activating as they should, your psoas muscle, a hip flexor that runs from the spine to the legs, takes over. An overstressed psoas causes back pain and compression in the lower lumbar vertebrae of the spine. Obviously not all back pain is a result of weak glutes, but it can be a contributing factor in many cases.
Good news is that we can offer you the perfect tailor made back and full body massages incorporating work on the hips and glutes in a safe pain free manner. Most of our clients experience a significant difference even after just one treatment and you will feel so good by the end of your treatment you will be simply purrrrring for more.
