Physical Therapy Treats More Than Your Hip Pain
At times, it may not be the hip that is the cause of your pain. The low back and even your sacroiliac joint, also known as your SI joint, may be the source of your hip pain.
That is why it is important to see a Physical Therapist for your pain. We are highly trained in performing full body evaluations and assessments in order to identify and treat the true problem rather than just your symptoms.
Physical Therapists will work with you to not only decrease your inflammation and pain, but to also improve your strength, range of motion, and your ability to perform whatever it is that you love to do!
Physical Therapy is Cost Effective
Most times, Hip Physical Therapy is not only more cost effective, but is overall more effective in helping you to overcome your pain and symptoms when compared to other treatment options.
The cost of Physical Therapy is less than the cost of surgery, long term medication use, and imaging. Also, most health insurances have great Physical Therapy benefits.
So why not try conservative, non-invasive Physical Therapy treatment first?
What to Expect
Your Physical Therapist will assess your hips, low back, pelvis, knees, and ankles by looking at how you are moving, your strength, and your range of motion.
During your appointment we will use many of our different techniques, including highly skilled manual therapy to decrease pain and improve range of motion. We will then provide patient education on how to improve body mechanics and movement patterns. And we will work with you on gait training, balance and coordination training, and ensure we prescribe the appropriate exercises for you to continue to work on these at home.
Everything will be individualized and tailored to your exact goals. Whether you want to run a 5k, be able to go up and down the stairs without pain, or get on the ground to play with your grandkids, your Physical Therapist will keep your goals in mind throughout your treatment.
