The hip is integral to everyday activities like sitting, standing, walking, climbing stairs and more. Injured and aggravated hips can turn simple tasks into painful experiences. Patients suffering from hip pain can benefit from targeted physical therapy to relieve symptoms and improve mobility. Pinpointing the location of the pain can help determine whether the pain is due to strained muscles, arthritic joints, hip bursitis or something else.
It is important to listen to your body. If you continue to feel pain in your hip after allowing yourself adequate time to rest, it is important to seek professional help from your doctor or San Antonio physical therapist. Receiving physical therapy in the early stages of your hip pain can help to alleviate symptoms, strengthen your hip, and may even prevent you from needing surgery down the road.
The team at Momentum Physical Therapy can help relieve your hip pain and get you back in action. In addition to heat and ice, your physical therapist may employ strengthening exercises, manual therapy and more.
