Arthritis (Osteoarthritis), Hip Fracture, Hip Replacement, Avascular Necrosis, Sciatica, IT Band Syndrome, Bursitis, Snapping Hip Syndrome, Hip Impingement (FAI), Pirformis Syndrome, Labral Tear
Studies show that about 19% of people over the age of 65 report having hip pain. Hip pain can be caused by many different things throughout one’s lifespan. In younger populations, it is common to see diagnoses such as IT band syndrome, snapping hip syndrome, and hip impingement. As normal aging changes take place, a person might experience some degree of osteoarthritis or eventually need a hip replacement. Whether treating pain or function in younger people, increasing mobility and strength in older populations, or providing rehabilitation following a joint replacement, physical therapy can often be beneficial for people with hip pain.
Why Motion Stability?
Many physical therapists will tell you that you don’t need surgery to address your hip pain, you just need exercises and stretching. Many people will encourage skipping physical therapy altogether and electing for surgery. At Motion Stability, we recognize that every individual is different, and their body has a unique story to tell. Whether you are experiencing hip pain that prevents you from participation in athletics or daily activities, or considering a hip replacement, our therapists will take the time to do a thorough examination and consider all of the factors that might be contributing to your dysfunction. Every minute of your appointment will be spent with a skilled Doctor of Physical Therapy with advanced training in orthopedics. Once we have identified the root of your hip pain, we will combine education, skilled manual therapy, and individualized exercise prescription to tailor a treatment plan specific to you and your needs.
