Treat Hip and Back Pain with Back and Hip Therapy

Back Pain

Are you one of the millions of people suffering from hip or back pain?

Our physical therapist will work with your doctor, or use specialized testing to determine the possible cause of your hip and back pain, and create an individualized program including exercise, hands-on manual therapy techniques, and modalities to help you return to your daily activities.

Some causes for hip and back pain may include:

9

Sciatica

This leg pain (and possibly tingling, numbness or weakness) originates in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg.

9

Trochanteric Bursitis

This can present painful inflammation of the bursa located just underneath the greater trochanter of the thighbone.

9

Osteoarthritis

This is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time.

9

Total Hip Replacement

This is a treatment option for late-stage degenerative hip disease, also known as osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis. Total hip replacement is one of the most successful and common surgical procedures in orthopedic surgery.

9

Tendonitis

This is an inflammation or irritation of a tendon, a thick cord that attaches bone to muscle. It is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the affected area, or from a sudden more serious injury.

9

Sacraliliac Dysfunction

The sacraliliac joint, also known as the SI joint, is thought to cause low back and/or leg pain. The leg pain can be particularly difficult, and may feel similar to sciatica or pain caused by a lumbar disc herniation.

No matter what causes your back or hip pain, at Performance Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab our physical therapist will use manual therapy and pain-free manipulation techniques to help decrease muscle tension and inflammation. We will teach you exercises that you can do at home to stabilize your joints, decrease risk for further injury, and improve your range of motion.
