We are in Week #8 of our series, "Your Health From Head To Toe". The hips are too often overlooked as a problem for those with low back or leg pain. In this episode, you'll learn:

--How hips are the root cause of a patient's problem 30% of the time, but only diagnosed correctly 5% of the time.

--That hip replacement surgeries are doubling every few years.

--Why Dr. Prather says hip misalignment is the reason for increasing hip problems.

--How most of the imaging is done on the low back, while imaging of the hip is neglected (which too often leads to a misdiagnosis).

--Why a doctor MUST be able to reproduce a patient's pain for a correct diagnosis.

--The consequences of misdiagnosing a hip issue, such as unnecessary surgery or treatments without any benefit.

--How the life of a hip replacement is about 15 years. And how the second hip replacement surgery does not go as well as the first one.

--That recovery time after a hip surgery can be cut by 50% with proper Chiropractic care.

--Why proper nutrients and minerals can reduce the amount of pain medication a patient needs.

--Why Dr. Prather says chiropractic combined with rehab is necessary for long-term results so that the problem does not have to be fixed again.
