Your hips are responsible for bearing a lot of your body weight, so their well-being is important. When one or both of your hips are in pain, it is difficult to perform daily tasks, such as walking, running or simply standing up from your chair. If you’re experiencing ongoing hip pain, you may want to seek hip pain treatment from a physical therapist at Back in Motion Physical Therapy.

How physical therapy may help treat hip pain
At Back in Motion Physical Therapy, you can always expect a personalized treatment plan. Your physical therapist will work with you to understand your hip pain and develop a personalized plan for recovery.
Your unique hip pain treatment plan depends on many factors, including a physical examination of your hip and a review of medical history and your current health. As with most physical therapy treatment plans, the goal is usually to improve the strength and flexibility of the affected area. It’s likely that your hip pain treatment will include some:
- Physical exercises and stretches
- Hot and cold therapies to help reduce pain and inflammation
- Manual joint manipulation
You should also receive instructions for exercises and stretches to perform in your home between your appointments. These exercises and stretches should help you achieve your recovery goals more quickly.
