Hip pain PHYSIOTHERAPY Edmonton

Does your hip hurt? Come over to Family Physiotherapy to begin a relief treatment plan.  

Hip pain can significantly impair your life, particularly when it makes it difficult to get up any hour of the day, move around during the day, and sleep at any time. If you’re having hip discomfort, physiotherapy care can help you safely and painlessly address the source of the problem. Therefore, schedule an appointment with Family Physiotherapy to alleviate your hip discomfort and avoid potentially dangerous drug or surgical correction. 

How will physiotherapy care benefit me if I am experiencing hip pain? 

At Family Physiotherapy, our physiotherapy treatments can significantly improve your hip discomfort. Our physiotherapists in Edmonton, Canada, will check your hip to determine the source of the problem. Often, back and, to a lesser extent, knee disorders can contribute to hip pain. Furthermore, structural injury to the hip or increased sensitivity to other tissues may cause hip discomfort. In most situations, our physiotherapists can completely alleviate your pain, avoiding possibly dangerous medication or surgical correction. 

During your physical examination, your therapist will move your back and hip, examine your stance, posture, gait, and range of motion, and do special medical tests to look for structural damage. Once the assessment is complete, your physiotherapists  will prescribe a treatment plan for you that will focus on quick pain relief and symptom modification through the use of one or more of the following: specific movements, alternative therapies, treatment methods such as acupuncture, needling and shockwave advice tailored to your case. Following that, function recovery becomes critical. This will require your physiotherapists  to expand your treatment plan to include strengthening your hip and surrounding muscle groups, gradually (re-)exposure to your activity, and eventually returning to living comfortably. 

What information should I have about hip pain? 

The lower back may be the etiology of hip discomfort in a significant proportion of persons (up to 70%); therefore, it should be checked first. After the spine has been cleared, your therapist will rule in or out common joint diseases such as arthritis, degenerative joint disease, and labral tears, as well as soft tissue conditions such as tendinitis, bursitis, or muscle strains. 

What can cause my hip pain? 

The hip is made up of a ball-and-socket joint that supports the weight of the upper body (arm, head, neck, chest, etc.), relying on a variety of musculoskeletal systems to keep it mobile and stable at the same time. Proper hip and knee movement enables complex motions, allowing you to stand, walk, run, and dance without falling over. 

Hip pain may begin in the joint itself or be a symptom of another illness in another part of the body. For example, your lower back, hips, and knees are connected via the same kinetic chain, which means they comprise a collection of weight-bearing joints that must work in unison to ensure your body functions effectively. As a result, an issue with your back or knee joint may result in aberrant forces being sent to your hips and vice versa. If one link in the kinetic chain is out of equilibrium, another may experience stress or strain.
