Common Hip injuries seen: 

  1. Osteoarthritis: This is a degenerative joint disease that can affect the hip joint, causing pain, stiffness, and/or limited mobility.

  2. Labral tears: The labrum is a ring of cartilage that lines the hip socket. Tears can occur due to injury or overuse, and can cause pain, stiffness, and/or a catching or locking sensation in the hip joint.

  3. Bursitis: This is inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint. It can cause pain and/or swelling in the hip area.

  4. Hip fractures: These are breaks in the hip bone, which are most common in older adults and can cause severe pain and/or limited mobility.

  5. Strains or sprains: These are common injuries that occur when the muscles or ligaments around the hip joint are stretched or torn, often due to sudden movements, repetitive motions, or overuse.

Hip Injury Treatments:

  1. Exercise: Physical therapists may prescribe specific exercises to strengthen the muscles that support the hip joint, improve flexibility and range of motion, and reduce pain.

  2. Manual therapy: This may involve hands-on techniques such as massage, joint mobilization, and/or manipulation to help improve hip joint alignment, reduce pain and inflammation, and improve mobility.

  3. Modalities: Physical therapists may use modalities such as heat or cold therapy, ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or traction to help reduce pain and inflammation.

  4. Education: Physical therapists may provide education on proper posture and body mechanics to help prevent future injuries.

  5. Activity modification: Physical therapists may recommend modifying or avoiding certain activities that may aggravate the hip pain.

  6. Assistive devices: For certain conditions, such as hip fractures or severe osteoarthritis, a physical therapist may recommend the use of assistive devices such as crutches or walkers to help support the hip joint and improve mobility.
