Hip and Leg Problems

  • Groin pain
  • Misaligned hips / pelvic tilt
  • Buttock pain
  • Thigh pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction

Although pain or stiffness in the hips may clear up with a few pain killers and a bit of rest, for others the pain can last. Pain maybe on and off, or occur with an increasing range of movements and actions, or can be continuous on a day-to-day basis and affect all aspects of life.

Discomfort and pain in the hips can have many causes but all should be attended to if the pain persists. If you’re looking for an alternative to drugs, injections and the surgeon’s knife you should consider the Bowen Technique.

Problems with the lower limb may originate in the lower spine, impingement within the hips, due to sprains and strains in the thigh or the knee, or various other causes leading to pain, stiffness and immobility.

At Better With Bowen we understand about hip and leg problems and the gentle and non-invasive treatment is a fast and effective way to treat muscle and connective tissue disorders enabling activity within weeks instead of months using conventional approaches.
