Hip pain is very common and we often receive patients who experience it on a daily basis. The problem with hip pain is that it can vary considerably and there could be a range of different conditions at fault. Some of these include muscle strains, tumours, snapping hip syndrome and even nerve entrapments. On top of this, you may have ITBS and bursitis so it is always important to get to the root of the problem before you find a solution.
Physical therapy is essential if you want to live a full and healthy life. It may also prevent future problems from happening, and by utilising the following, you can be sure to see a difference.
Our therapists will start by asking you various questions about your health and your lifestyle. They may also ask you some questions about your medical history, but if your hip pain was caused by a trauma, they may also need to consult with your doctor.
The next step in the process would be to make sure that you have a treatment plan that suits your needs. In addition to this, we will also provide you with plenty of exercises that are fully designed to increase your flexibility, strength, stability and more. Take a look below to see what we can do for you.
A lot of physical therapists will conduct a session that lasts around an hour. In some instances however, your session may not last as long and the amount of sessions you need will largely depend on the reason for your hip pain. Some patients may only need a couple of sessions whereas others may need more sessions in order to achieve the best results.
Your therapist will show you how you can avoid any future problems by showing you how to stand, move and sit with the right posture. They may also take a look at the layout of your home and your workplace as well to make sure that you don’t reinjure yourself at a later date. This is all designed so you feel better, faster and it also helps you to stay pain free for longer as well. If you experience any of the following conditions, take a look below and contact us today:
