Physical Therapy for Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by a direct injury to the hip joint, or from underlying issues like a hernia or groin injury. Many people associate hip pain with old age. However, hip pain can affect people of all ages, especially dancers and athletes.
The hip joint is an extremely strong and durable joint. However, the cartilage can be worn down, tendons can be overused, muscles of the hip can be fatigued, and even the bones themselves can be fractured from a fall or other injury.
