The first and most important thing is that I want to congratulate you for making the great decision to download this report. With an endless amount of options out there, it's difficult to know what you should choose.
Some options may include pain pills, rest, or even surgery. As you probably know, none of these actually address the true problem, they only mask it. And you probably also know that this makes the pain worse in the long run. We also know you may have other options like massage or physical therapy but these options often just give us temporary relief and don't get to the ROOT cause of the issue.
This booklet provides a few natural tips that you can implement immediately to your daily life. These tips are meant to bring relief and also give you some insight into why your hip or sciatic nerve are bothering you. Luckily, we have been able to help thousands of patients over the years tips very similar to this. Most importantly, what I really want you to know is that many of these tips have helped someone you may already be familiar with, the guy writing this report. Yes, I have suffered with sciatic and hip pain off and on for years. Mine got so bad that I ended up needed surgery. Luckily for you, I learned much of this AFTER surgery and it's now my mission to help others like you so you can avoid the same problems that I went through.
These tips allow you to take control of your health and really start to get to the root cause of the problem.

I know what you are thinking. I must be crazy! How could anyone avoid sitting?? Between driving to and from work or sitting on the couch at night or even sitting down to eat dinner, it's almost inevitable that you will need to sit at some point throughout your day.
Because I know this, my real recommendation is to create more awareness around when you have to sit. In other words, only sit when you have to. So driving to work may be one where you certainly have to sit. BUT, many people with desk jobs actually have the option to work at a standing desk during the day. This could be a great alternative.
Usually, the magic number is twenty minutes. Sitting much longer than that will certainly cause your pain to increase quite significantly and can set you back into a painful cycle!
This is such a common question and one we answer often. First, if anyone tells you they know for sure what to use, they are most likely not telling the truth. The fact of the matter is that there is no good research to indicate that when you have pain, ice or heat is better. So what does this mean to you? It means that you should use whichever works! I know this sounds simple, but this is all that each of these are doing. Ice and heat do not actually "Heal" the tissue. They are there to make the pain feel better. So if heat loosens up the area, use heat. If ice numbs the area, use ice. Some people even enjoy going from heat to ice every 30 minutes to create a "contrast". This is great, too!
I don't know about you, but when I'm in pain I just want to be lazy and sit around doing nothing. I know how exhausting pain can be and it's so important that you give your body a chance to rest and recover.
That being said, the position you "rest" in is very important. If you are like me, you enjoy sitting on your couch, feet on the coffee table, watching the game. The problem is usually when you go to stand up, the pain gets way worse! This is because that seated position with your feet up can really put a ton of strain on the sciatic and hip!
My suggestion is to keep your feet on the floor, nice and flat and sit upright. It's ok to put a few pillows behind you so that you are still relaxed and can get the rest you need!
When you wake up in the morning, most likely you are really stiff in the back, hips, and legs. Many people feel they need to stretch as soon as they wake up just so they can loosen up the muscles and joints.
My suggestion would actually be to wait a little while. Once you wake up, you should certainly move around. I'd recommend getting up and walking, possibly do some light chores around the house. But I would NOT recommend "cranking" your body into severe stretches. The problem with this is that you may be adding "too much, too soon" to the body even if it feels good, short term.
Think about it like this: You just turned the car engine on and the next second you go 100 mph. This is NOT the best way to do business with your car OR your body.
Step one for any pain or injury is to simply create awareness around when and how the problem actually occurs. It's most likely that there are times of day that are better and times that it's worse. Is there any specific activity or activities that make it better or worse? This insight gives us so much information that can help guide you towards proper healing.
Many people do well with actually writing or recording on their phone exactly when they feel a flare up. Sometimes a pattern can emerge and we can get very specific on the issue at hand. There are so many factors that can contribute to hip or sciatic-type pain that as long as a pattern emerged, we are in great shape to fix the pain!
Many people are shocked to hear a doctor encourage exercise right after an injury. But we are different than your 'normal' doctor and understand that the right exercise can be very beneficial.
The best form of light exercise is walking. It almost seems too simple but walking can be very effective for injuries as it gets oxygen to the muscles and keeps them from tightening up. Recognize that you don't need to break a sweat or walk like a crazy person in order to loosen up. It's just about getting and keeping the body moving!
Congratulations, in downloading this tips report, you have just taken the first step towards finally finding relief for your hip and sciatic pain. If you just implement a few of these strategies, then you might experience a 10, 20, or in some cases up to 30-40% in pain reduction without EVER having to take one pill!
I will not sugar coat the severity of some hip and sciatic injuries, especially for those who have a tendency to "wait it out." The longer you wait to get this thing resolved, the longer it takes to get better.
Getting a proper movement diagnosis is of utmost importance... Finding out what the true "root causes" of your pain instead of wasting time trying to "alleviate symptoms" is the single reason why MOST people suffer for so long with back pain. Once your full-body's movement patterns have been carefully analyzed and diagnosed, you, alongside your chiropractor will create an actionable care plan that works best for your body, and your lifestyle.
This plan will include:
1. Understanding of your problem and how to make the best, most reasonable changes to your lifestyle to allow for proper healing
2. A restoration of your mobility using hands-on methods and techniques to unlock stiff joints, loosen tight muscles, and get rid of old scar tissue, to allow you more freedom to move throughout the day
3. An individualized, personalized, exercise program to help you build strength, flexibility, and resiliency back into your body. This will help increase your body awareness, confidence, and ability to do daily tasks such as exercise/golf with friends, or even pick up your kids or grandkids!
