Hip Physical Therapy Exercise Program

Let’s talk about the hip joint.

The hip is a ball and socket joint. It includes the thigh bone (femur) and the hip socket (acetabulum). It must withstand significant forces as a primary weight-bearing joint in the body, especially with prolonged walking, jogging, and walking on uneven surfaces. The hip is susceptible to injury, muscle imbalances throughout the pelvis and legs, and weakness from inactivity.

Causes of Hip Pain

A common source of pain in the hip joint may be the development of osteoarthritis (OA). Pain may also arise as referred pain from the low back and pelvis and may even be affected by other joints, including the knee, ankle, and foot.

Osteoarthritis of the hip is among the leading causes of global disability, highlighting the need for early, targeted, and effective treatment. This statement is referenced and highlighted in the Journal of Orthopedic Physical Therapy (JOSPT) article published May 31, 2018. It summarizes the importance of properly planned and focused therapeutic exercises and how they can decrease joint inflammation and pain. The article also explains how therapeutic exercise will assist with the prevention of cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, neurocognitive disorders such as dementia, depression, and other mental disorders, among many other chronic diseases.

A number of chronic diseases are associated with OA and chronic low-grade inflammation. Importantly, persistent systemic inflammation is associated with high cardiovascular risk and predisposes one to metabolic disorders and muscle wasting. Thus, the problem doesn’t just lie within the osteoarthritic hip joint, it becomes a vicious cycle for the entire body that can be treated with something as simple as professionally instructed and dosed therapeutic exercise.

Just think about this: research in multiple meta-analysis studies from top-rated journals indicates you can reverse the effects of inflammation in your hip joint, thus reducing the amount of inflammation in your system. This will also help reverse the effects of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, Alzheimer’s, obesity, and depression just to name a few! You will improve all of these conditions with as little as 12 exercise sessions. (See a recent article) >>

We have the solution, and it’s not medication, injections, or surgery.

Pain and Stiffness Relief

Many people with hip pain experience stiffness in the hip joint, which can limit their range of motion. This stiffness may make it difficult to perform everyday activities, such as bending, walking, or sitting for extended periods.

Muscle Strengthening

Weakness in the muscles around the hip joint can contribute to pain and instability. Your program will include exercises to strengthen the muscles that support the hip, such as the hip abductors, adductors, and gluteal muscles.

Range of Motion

We immediately work on improving and maintaining the range of motion in your hip joint. We will guide you through exercises and stretches that aim to increase flexibility and reduce stiffness.

Gait and Mobility

If you have difficulty walking or moving due to hip pain or injury, we can help you regain proper gait patterns and improve mobility.

Balance and Stability

Balance exercises are crucial, especially for older adults or those at risk of falls. All of our programs contain balance training to improve stability and reduce the risk of hip injuries.

Post-operative Rehabilitation

After hip surgery, such as hip replacement or hip arthroscopy, physical therapy is essential for a successful recovery. Once you have been discharged from your post operative care with a physical therapist, this is the perfect program to keep your progress going and keep it for life!

Functional Training

If your hip problem has limited your ability to perform daily activities or participate in sports or recreational activities, our programs incorporate functional training exercises to help you regain these abilities.

Prevention Strategies

We provide guidance on injury prevention techniques, such as proper warm-up exercises, stretching routines, and conditioning programs tailored to your specific activities or sports.
