The hip joints are a pair of symmetrical, large, weight-bearing joints surrounded by a strong structure of ligaments, tendons, nerves, and muscles. Theoretically, hip joints should last a lifetime. Whereas hip pain in adults under 50 has never been considered normal, the number of relatively-young people suffering from hip pain is on the rise.
If you have hip pain, you may benefit from physical therapy to help control your symptoms and improve your overall functional mobility. Your physical therapy program should focus on decreasing or eliminating your pain, improving your hip range of motion and strength, and restoring normal functional mobility.
There are a number of conditions associated with chronic hip pain:
These conditions have several causes, including:
A sedentary lifestyle (think a desk job and many hours of driving)
Sport injuries (overuse or direct impact)
Genetic predisposition to osteoarthritis
Poor body mechanics (gait)
Poor alignment of hip joints (poor posture may lead to uneven hips, an anterior pelvic tilt, or a rotated pelvis
Here are exercises associated with alleviating and preventing hip pain.
