How can physical therapy help?

Physical therapy treatment for the hip often consists of manual therapy and strengthening exercises to open and stabilize the hips. Our goal is to improve range of motion and eventually help you return you to optimal functioning.

Exercise

Specific exercises will be prescribed to build support for the hip joints, commonly targeting the outer and inner thighs, glutes, and lower back muscles. Resistance training may be incorporated. 

Stretch

Building strength is important in treatment, but so is building your flexibility. If you’ve never stretched out your hips, they may be very tight and eventually cause you pain.  Living a sedentary lifestyle can attribute to hip pain as well. Being proactive about your discomfort is the best way to improve it. Simply hoping for the pain to diminish on its own will rarely be a solution.  

Soft tissue manipulation

Your physical therapist will manually push and knead your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. This is useful for releasing tension and improving mobility. 

Instrument assisted mobilization 

Incorporating physical therapy instruments into your treatment provides a great boost to your recovery. This type of therapy can be greatly beneficial for breaking up scar tissue or adhesions around the muscles, which frequently cause pain and limit mobility.
