Hip Pain

Treatment

Chronic hip pain impairs mobility which can affect sitting and standing tolerance.  Whether it is due to a sports injury or an arthritic condition, we will provide a thorough evaluation followed by prompt therapeutic treatment.  The physical therapists at Advanced Care Physical Therapy are professionally trained to deal with hip pain. We will discuss changes in function and work to develop long range goals according to patient needs.

  • iontophoresis
  • electrical stimulation

Manual Therapy

Our therapists utilize a wide variety of manual therapy techniques including soft tissue mobilization, range of motion, manual stretching, trigger point release, primal reflex release, and myofascial release.  These techniques are utilized to decrease pain, increase joint motion, reduce muscle spasms, increase flexibility, reduce scar tissue, and increase mobility.

Flexibility

The therapists at Advanced Care Physical Therapy work toward improving muscle length and appropriate hip motion, key ingredients in creating smooth and coordinated movement at the hip.

Strengthening

As a component of the physical therapy session, the therapist may choose to add strengthening exercises.  AIM Physical Therapy staff utilize state-of-the-art strengthening equipment in a quite, calm atmosphere.  In addition, the therapist may recommend a home exercise program so that the patient can continue to work as an integral team member to gain independence and return to function.
