When the hip joint tightens due to mental or emotional stress,
it can disrupt the balance of the autonomic nervous system and cause hormonal imbalances,
particularly in women who experience significant changes in their hormonal balance during certain periods such as menstrual cycles or menopause.
This tension in the hip joint can therefore be a source of stress for women. Therefore, easing the tension in the hip joint can be an important measure to maintain women’s health and reduce stress.
The relationship between hip joint tension and hormonal balance involves the secretion of stress hormones. When mental or emotional stress continues,
the adrenal glands secrete cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Cortisol stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, causing muscle tension and physical discomforts such as lower back pain and shoulder stiffness.
In addition, cortisol can interfere with the secretion of female hormones, leading to hormonal imbalances. Therefore, reducing stress can help balance hormones and relieve hip joint tension.
