Contact Next Level Physio today to schedule your consultation and learn more about how our services can get you back to doing the activities you love! Why am I experiencing hip pain? Your hip is a ball-and-socket joint that works to support the weight of your upper body, relying on multiple muscles and tissues to keep it mobile and stable so it can function properly. Pain felt in the hips may originate in the joints themselves, but it may also be a result of an underlying condition in another part of the body. For example, your hips are part of a kinetic chain, meaning they make up a combination of weight-bearing joints that must function with other parts of the body in harmony (such as the knees), in order for your body and posture to function properly. This means that while you may be feeling pain in your hip, the problem could actually be rooted in a different part of your body. Therefore, a
problem with your knee joint may transmit painful signals to your hips, and vice versa. If one part of the kinetic chain is out of balance, stress and deterioration may be placed on another.
Common causes of hip pain: Overuse injuries, such as tendinitis and chronic muscle strain, are common in the hips because they are constantly in use. However, the hips may also be subject to acute injuries, such as sprains, strains, and dislocation. Hip pain can also be affected by referred pain from a pinched sciatic nerve, as the nerve travels through the area. Imbalances in your stance or gait may cause abnormal stresses and premature wear-and-tear in your hips, resulting in painful symptoms or arthritis. cartilage injuries, known as labral tears, are specific to hip pain. However, painful injuries that cause instability in the hips can also affect parts of the body that are located in the same kinetic chain. For example, tight hip flexor muscles and weak gluteus medius muscles can cause the hip to rotate inward without you realizing it. This can cause painful problems such as iliotibial band friction syndrome.
Find Hip Pain Relief With Next Level Physio
The physical therapy treatments we offer at Next Level Physio can help to greatly reduce your hip pain. In many cases, it can even relieve it altogether! Our dedicated physical therapists will examine your hips for signs of misalignment or structural damage, in addition to examining your stance, posture, gait, and range of motion. After your physical exam is complete, our physical therapists will prescribe a physical therapy plan for you, aimed at relieving unnatural stresses and strains, and normalizing your joint function. You will be given targeted exercises designed for relieving hip joint pain and stabilizing weak hip tissues. The exercises may vary depending on your condition. You may also be given exercises designed to strengthen the core, including your lower back muscle groups, lower abdominal muscle groups, or pelvic muscles. Core exercises are aimed at straightening your posture and equalizing the weight load on both sides of your body. Your physical therapist will also provide manual techniques to relieve pain and swelling, in addition to promoting the healing process.
