Looking for Physical Therapy for Hip Pain in Brewer, ME

At Back in Motion Physical Therapy in Brewer, ME, our physical therapists understand the importance of taking care of the largest ball and socket joint in the body. Your hips support your entire upper body and a lifetime of walking and jumping can wear down the cartilage that cushions the joint. Fortunately, the therapists of Back in Motion Physical Therapy have decades of combined experience when it comes to treating and rehabilitating ailments of the hip.

Causes of hip pain

The single most common cause of hip pain is arthritis, especially in older adults. While the hip is designed to withstand a fair amount of wear and tear, arthritis will cause inflammation which eventually breaks down the protective cartilage of the hip joint. In addition, Back in Motion Physical Therapy has treatment options available for patients that suffer from:

  • Fractures or breaks
  • Bursitis
  • Impingements
  • Labral Tears

There are instances where the damage to the hip joint is severe enough that a doctor may recommend a complete hip replacement surgery. Back in Motion Physical Therapy will work with your doctor to come up with a treatment plan for your post-surgical rehabilitation.

Treatment options

Every patient is different, which is why Back in Motion Physical Therapy will provide a thorough assessment to come up with a personalized treatment plan based on patient history and goals. Exercises will be prescribed to strengthen the muscles and increase range of motion. Manual therapy may be used to manipulate the joint and relieve tension. Massage therapy is a relaxing option that can improve blood flow and reduce pain. Ice, heat and electrical stimulation are also used to help with patient recovery.
