Treatment for Hip Pain

custom Orthotics Barrie

Physiotherapy and chiropractic care are commonly used for treating hip pain, regardless of the underlying cause. These treatments aim to improve hip joint mobility and stability while reducing pain and inflammation. The first step in treatment is a thorough assessment of the patient's condition, including medical history and physical examination. This allows the therapist to determine the underlying cause of the pain and tailor the treatment plan accordingly.

Physical therapy often involves exercises to improve hip strength, stability, and range of motion. Several exercises and techniques can help with hip joint pain and improve mobility. Stretching, foam rolling, and strengthening exercises that focus on the hips, glutes, and core can be helpful. For example, manual therapy techniques like joint mobilization and soft tissue massage can help improve hip joint mobility and reduce pain and inflammation.

Moreover, chiropractic care may involve adjustments to improve pelvic alignment and reduce pressure on the hip joint. Other techniques like myofascial release and trigger point therapy can also address muscle imbalances and alleviate pain.
