Physical therapy treatment addresses hip pain by assessing the muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, bones, and joints in that region of the body. Hip pain may also accompany low back, knee, and buttock pain. Hips are very stable and it takes great force to injure them when they are healthy. Your hip joint connects your femur to your pelvis. Common causes of hip pain include fractures, strains, dislocations, and bursitis. You should seek a physical therapist to relieve your pain that may be
caused from osteoarthritis, running, overuse, or falling.
When is the best
time to start
Typically, treatment should begin as early as possible. Treating a problem early helps to prevent it from becoming chronic and in the prevention of future problems.

Your Right to Choose
The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
