Considering a hip replacement?
The number of hip replacement surgeries performed each year has doubled over the last decade.
Here are 3 ways to avoid a hip surgery:
1. Maintain a healthy weight– studies are evaluating the use of weight loss and exercise plans to delay hip replacements. Because the hip is a weight-bearing joint, losing weight can reduce wear and tear of the cartilage.
2. Get moving – having a strong core helps support spinal alignment which can prevent uneven wear from mechanical imbalance.
3. Explore treatment options – if you haven’t been introduced to non-surgical options, it’s important to get a second opinion. Request a consultation at healthstarclinic.com
