Do you suffer from nagging or chronic Hip Pain?

Hip Pain

Hip pain is a common problem, and is often difficult to diagnose and resolve due to the large range of causes. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the underlying problem. While it can be related to an injury suffered during a single event, hip pain often begins without a clear reason.

Some common causes of hip pain are:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle strain/tendinopathy
  • Bursitis
  • Impingement
  • Labral tears

There are also a number of other problems, including lower back strain, which can cause hip pain. Evaluation by a physical therapist can help determine why you are having your symptoms, and design a personalized rehabilitation plan to help you get better. Physical therapy can be effective treatment for most causes of hip pain without the need for expensive surgery or the side-effects of medications. Treatment aims to reduce pain and stiffness in your hip, as well as improve your overall flexibility, strength, and muscular balance.
