Our therapists at PT solutions are well versed in the anatomy of the hip and all of the potential structures that may be referring your pain. In addition, they will be able to analyze your movement patterns to determine the most likely original cause of the pain. Hip pain is rarely just the hip, as the low back is often the culprit of developing pathology.
We use a combination of manual therapy and exercise for all regions contributing to your hip pain. Manual therapy will often include mobilization/manipulation of both the hip and lumbar spine. Soft tissue mobilization and trigger point release are effective technique for restoring proper function of lumbopelvic stabilizing muscles. Exercise will initially focus on improving activation and control of all muscles necessary to stabilize your hip. As control improves, your therapist will guide you through specific functional movements necessary for you to achieve your goals.
