What Causes Hip Pain
The hip joint is one of the largest and most important in the body. There are several muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves that all pass through and surround the hip. Any one of these structures can become injured and cause pain. Through the help of physical therapy, you will be able to narrow down if the issue is joint, muscle, or nerve related pain.
The type of hip pain you are experiencing will give us clues as to what structure may be the issue. Whether it was one specific event that causes your pain or more of a longstanding issue that has progressed, physical therapy can help.
The Physical Therapists at Pro Staff are different when it comes to evaluating our patients. We make sure that we check every structure to come up with a specific treatment plan for you. Because the hip can be so complex it is important to get evaluated thoroughly.
Common Symptoms of Hip Pain
- Pain along the outside of the hip, knee, and thigh.
- Local tenderness and swelling within the hip.
- Difficulty walking or running, secondary to pain.
- Deep ache in the hip joint.

Treatment for Hip Pain
Treating hip pain first involves finding the source of the pain. During your first physical therapy session we will dive deeper into your injury and find out what is going on. This may involve a variety of manual therapy, passive modalities, and mobility focused exercises.
Once the pain has subsided it will be important to strengthen any areas of weakness that may have been contributing to your hip pain. This will help ensure you have a strong base of support and decrease any excessive friction that may be happening.
Your physical therapist will work with you through each stage of healing to ensure you are getting the proper exercises and treatment as you heal. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating all variations of hip pain. We will help you get back to feeling like your normal self no matter how long your pain has been affecting you.
