The hips are a significant player in the weight-bearing structure of the body and the transfer of power and muscle force from your lower body to your upper body. As such, it is important to keep the joints strong and flexible to prevent future injury.
When hip injuries do occur, we are here to help! The primary objective of physical therapy is to reduce pain by improving mobility and restoring muscle balance gradually.
There are multiple causes of hip pain that may come from the ankle, knee, back, and of course the hip. A proper physical therapy evaluation can determine the best course of action.
