Get the Hip Pain Treatment You Need

Hip pain can seriously disrupt nearly every aspect of your life. Whether you’re trying to get out of bed, do yard work or get some shopping done, persistent hip pain can make basic tasks feel impossible.

Almost everyone has to deal with hip pain at some point in their lives, but it can often be managed with basic treatments such as rest, hot and cold compression therapy and gentle stretches. However, if hip pain is severe or persists for longer than a few days to a week, you should consult with a qualified health care professional.  

For a large number of cases, physical therapy is a fundamental part of a comprehensive plan for hip pain treatment. With our state-of-the-art clinic in Kentwood, Michigan, Advent Physical Therapy can help local patients find relief from hip pain and get back to enjoying life.

How does physical therapy help with hip pain?

After reviewing your treatment history and asking about your symptoms, a licensed and qualified physical therapist can perform an assessment of your movement, posture and painful areas. From there, he or she can work with you to develop a treatment plan designed to stretch and strengthen the soft tissue around the hip joints.

The goal of physical therapy is to relieve pain and improve mobility and range of motion. This is typically accomplished with two types of treatments:

  • Passive therapy — These are techniques and exercises that a physical therapist performs on the patient. Passive therapy for hip pain treatment can involve stretches and soft tissue mobilization.
  • Active therapy — These are exercises and movements that a patient performs themselves, usually with guidance from the therapist. Examples include stability exercises that require patients to balance themselves.

In addition to sessions in the clinic, a large part of physical therapy occurs at home. A physical therapist should give you instructions on exercises, treatments and healthy lifestyle choices that can help with hip pain treatment.
