Hip pan is usually treated with the physical therapy but before this, a quick examination of the hip will have to be done. Once you begin with the physical therapy, you will have to undergo an examination during which your hip will be tested for sensation, strength and range of motion.

This condition happens due to tear and wear of the hip we experience during the day and it is considered to be a very common problem in America.

The pain can be reduced with cycling, swimming and various stretching and strengthening programs, which will also help you function better.

Hip Bursitis

Sacs found between the muscles and bones are called bursa, and they are filled with fluid and lubricate the muscles and bones when we move. The biggest bursa in the human body is located in the hip, which is why hip pain can be a result of the inflamed bursa. The outside area of the hip is where bursa pain is usually felt and this pain can be reduced by the ultrasound and other physical modalities. Also, heat and cold packs can be used for the same purpose. The inflamed bursa suffers certain pressure and this pressure should be reduced by certain stretches your psychical therapist will show you.

Iliotibial Band Syndrome

The IT Band can produce hip pain as well, but it mostly causes knee pain. This kind of pain goes from the hip to the knee and on the thigh side. Also, when bending your knee, you may hear a snapping sound. A combination of strengthening exercises and physical modalities, such as ice massage and ultrasound, is prescribed for this problem.

Hip Replacement

When hip pain is in question, the greatest benefits of physical therapy are associated with the hip replacement. The pain felt after the hip replacement can be reduced with the help of numerous exercises that will increase your movement and functionality. Physical therapy should last eight weeks and it should start on the day or day after the surgical procedure. You will have to focus on the gait training and increase your hip strength.
