When you walk, run, or even just shift positions in your chair, your hip, knee, ankles, feet, and all their associated muscle groups work together to allow you to move fluidly and accurately. When one of these joints or muscle groups isn’t working properly, you’ll often experience pain in different parts of the leg. Your hip is one of the most important stabilizing joints in the body, and it also experiences a lot of wear and tear in everyday life – let alone in athletics and outdoor activities! Hip pain can leave you with very limited movement and make walking painful. This pain may radiate to the groin, buttock, or thigh, only increasing your discomfort. What’s more, having an unstable hip joint can increase your risk of falling, which can lead to serious injury.
Our expert physical therapists at Teton Therapy have years of medical training and hands-on experience. They understand the complexities of hip movement and function and know what to do to help.
We’ll start by examining your form when you’re walking, as well as your movement, range of motion, strength, and coordination. These evaluations will help us pinpoint the source of your pain and develop a customized treatment plan for you. We will probably include a series of manual therapies and exercises to reduce your pain and restore normal function.
