Our primary goal is to assist you in discovering sustainable, long-term solutions!

Frequent Hip Conditions We Address:

Common Causes:

  1. Impaired Mechanics: Reduced joint flexibility or muscle stiffness affecting range of motion, weakness, muscle imbalances, and compromised posture.
  2. Injury: Occurs from sudden impacts or excessive loading on the hip tissues.
  3. Compensations: Prior injuries or fear of future ones can lead to avoidance of certain muscle groups, simultaneously causing overuse of other tissues.

Advanced Movement Therapy Approach:

  1. Break the Pain Cycle:
    • Educate patients on pain management techniques.
    • Utilize manual therapy to address pain and improve tissue mobility.
  2. Enhance Joint, Muscle, and Nerve Mechanics:
    • Focus on improving joint, muscle, and nerve function during daily activities and sports.
    • Tailor exercises to address specific functional tasks and sports-related movements.
  3. Strengthen Tissues for Resilience:
    • Gradually load tissues to enhance strength, power, and endurance.
    • Prepare tissues to handle various demands without fear of re-injury.

Hip-Specific Treatments:

Important Things to Understand

  1. Tissues’ Healing Process: The body can heal itself naturally, but sometimes it can get stuck in the inflammatory phase during tissue repair. In such cases, external assistance may be needed to transition into the recovery phase.
  2. Pain Correlation: The true source of pain is not always directly linked to the results of X-rays or MRIs. It is possible to have tissue damage without experiencing pain or functional limitations. Conversely, pain can exist without visible findings on imaging, often due to nervous tissue hypersensitivity.
  3. Soreness after Exercise: While soreness is not the goal, it isn’t always a cause for concern. Real strength gains require exerting an overload on the system, resulting in tissue micro-damage. As these tissues recover, they become thicker and stronger. Monitoring soreness can help determine if the tissue is ready for increased load, should maintain the current level, or requires a reduction in training intensity until adequately prepared.
  4. Return to Activities: Almost always, a return to previous or desired activities is feasible with proper education, correct mechanics, and gradual tissue loading.
