Don’t despair if you’re experiencing hip pain
Many hip disorders benefit quickly from physical therapy, both symptomatically and functionally. Early treatment can prevent future complications as well as maintain mobility down the road. Physical therapy can reduce pain, improve quality of life, and delay or even eliminate the need for surgery.
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint with a vast network of ligaments and muscles that provides a considerable degree of stability and support to the area. Since the hip joint is a weight-bearing joint, keeping the surrounding muscles supple with regular exercise can help protect the hips from excessive wear and tear. Many factors such as muscle strains and arthritis or fractures may cause soreness around the groin, pelvis, or hip joint. It may even seem like you’re experiencing pain for no apparent reason, when in actuality hip pain can even be caused by the lumbar spine and or the sacroiliac joint. Many back related symptoms are caused by the hip.
On your first visit, your PT will do a comprehensive evaluation to determine the cause of your disorder. The evaluation can consist of gait assessment, range of motion muscle testing, nerve testing, differential diagnostic to rule out other possibilities, such as the low back and other non-orthopedic possibilities requiring a referral for more detailed diagnostics. Treatment will vary depending on your condition, but therapies include therapeutic ultrasound, cold laser therapy, electro trigger point, myofascial therapy, dynamic cupping, active release techniques (ART), therapeutic exercise, manual mobilization, and more. Regardless of which therapist you see here at Joint & Spine Rehabilitation, you can be assured your therapist has a minimum of 10 years of experience, which is the minimum experience required to be employed here at Joint & Spine Rehabilitation.
