Hip Pain

At Upright Athlete Physical Therapy in Durham our therapist are experts in treating and diagnosing hip related pain. Hip pain can be caused by a number of factors including tightness or weakness in muscles surrounding the hip, core weakness, and over use.

Many times hip pain is due to poor movement patterns during movements such as squatting and running. Our physical therapists have extensive knowledge on gait, running and squatting mechanics and can make recommendations to improve movement. Uprright Athelte Physical Theapy in Durharm utilizes best evidence and our clinical expertise to develop individualized treatment plans for each patient. Our goal is to work with our patients to help get them back to the activities they enjoy and help prevent future injuries.

In addition to addressing movement deficits and providing corrective exercises, Uprright Athelte Physical Theapy in Durharm can also build custom orthotics to correct any issues at the foot that may be contributing to hip pain. During your initial exam your therapist will analyze your movement patterns, strength and flexibility and recommend treatments based on examination results. All examination sessions are 45 minutes in length and performed one on one with your therapist. You will also be given a home exercise program. Your therapist will guide you through all of your home exercises and make sure you are performing each exercise with proper form. You will also be provided an account on our custom Upright Athlete app, which has videos and descriptions of all your home exercises.
