People deal with low back and hip issues on a weekly and monthly basis. Unfortunately in some cases, low back and hip discomfort can be a daily struggle.
Seemingly simple tasks such as bending forward to put your socks and shoes on, or transitioning in and out of your car become more difficult. In some cases, it's annoyingly uncomfortable.
