Have You Been Suffering From Hip Pain And Just Want A Solution That Lasts?
A Personal Message From Cindy Langer, MSPT:
If You Answered “Yes” To Any Of These Questions, You Are In The Right Place!
Your hips and knees: they’re the largest joints in your body, connecting a large number of muscles, bones and ligaments. That means that much of the daily abuse that your body takes can ultimately impact your hips and knees. And when these crucial joints begin to show strain, it can become difficult to move much at all — at least without pain. For that reason, it’s important to seek medical attention for hip pain as soon as possible. Often, physical therapy can be the key to avoiding surgery or prescription medication altogether, or rebounding quickly from those less conservative treatments.
How can I decrease hip pain?
Worn joints and pinched nerves are the most common culprits for hip pain. Aging and overuse often cause osteoarthritis, but this painful joint disease can also stem from old injuries. Repetitive motion sometimes leads to hip bursitis, in which fluid-filled sacs around your hips become inflamed. What’s another possible reason for your hip pain? Tight buttock and thigh musculature can also cause unnecessary hip joint strain. Lastly, various nerves running from your lumbar spine can also become pinched, due to anything from pregnancy to poor posture.
Our physical therapist will give you a full evaluation, assessing your range of motion, level of hip pain, and whether the discomfort also radiates from your back into your buttocks, thighs and groin.
Based on this evaluation and existing medical tests, we’ll work on soft tissue and joint mobilization manual therapy techniques, adding flexibility and strengthening exercises as needed, and give you movement and strengthening strategies to manage the pain.
