Has anyone ever told you that your pelvis or hips were "out of place"?
Well, it isn't really true that anything has come out of place at all. Your spine, pelvis, and hips can move into many positions and then move back out of them to return to a neutral position.
When someone might have said you are out of place, what has really happened is that you have lost the ability to come out of a position to move back into neutral. You are in essence, stuck in certain position and this can be painful to your hip, pelvis, and back.
