Alleviate Hip Pain With Physical Therapy
Like the shoulder, the hip is a ball-and-socket joint allowing for a wide range of motion. Although very durable, the hip isn’t immune to injury, and things like exercise, trauma, overuse, or other medical conditions can cause many to feel pain in either one or both of their hips. You may feel hip pain directly on your hip, or it may be felt in other closeby areas like your upper thigh, groin, buttocks, and even knee. To identify the cause of your hip pain and treat it correctly, physical therapy may be necessary.
