Here at All Health Physical Therapy Inc., we specialize in helping others find out what is causing their hip pain and correcting it so that they feel like themselves again, or even better than before! Our hips are such an important part of our body. They ensure that we stand up straight, control the entire bottom half of us, and allow us to walk, run, kick, and play.
In many cases, hip pain is simply caused by osteoarthritis, though it can also be a result of an injury.
We will put together a treatment plan to make sure that this happens. Depending on the severity of your condition, we may treat you by adjusting your hips though we also do exercise therapy, stretching, massage, and other solutions.
In a recent study, 60% of patients had their symptoms improve so much that they no longer required surgery. That is our goal. If you do have osteoporosis, you will still benefit from physical care to relieve your hip pain.

When do I need pain management?
Many people believe in pushing through their pain, but that’s not always the best approach. In many cases, early physical therapy goes a long way toward relieving your pain and restoring function without needing powerful pain medications.
Management of acute pain
Acute pain begins when you suffer an injury or illness. While this type of pain can be severe, it should last less than a few months or go away when the underlying problem heals.
The initial treatment for acute pain often includes passive or active physical therapy. Starting physical therapy as early as possible lowers your risk of acute pain turning into chronic pain.
Management of chronic pain
Chronic pain lasts at least 3-6 months or persists long after the injury heals. Chronic pain doesn’t respond well to medication. As a result, physical therapy is often the first treatment for chronic pain.
You should also start physical therapy early for chronic pain. Without treatment, ongoing pain changes your central nervous system. As a result, your nerves become more sensitive and your pain increases.
How does physical therapy relieve pain?
The team at All Health Physical Therapy Inc. use many modalities that relieve acute and chronic pain by:
- Increasing blood flow
- Diminishing inflammation
- Increasing range of motion
- Promoting flexibility
- Restoring muscle strength
- Rebuilding balance
- Improving body mechanics
Physical therapy isn’t a temporary, quick fix. Rather, the goal of your treatment is to alleviate pain over time and improve your long-term functioning.
What physical therapy modalities are used in pain management?
Your therapist at All Health Physical Therapy Inc. takes the time to understand your pain and its underlying cause. Then they develop a pain management plan that fits your physical ability and works toward your personal goals.
Physical therapists offer a variety of treatments or modalities, including:
Manual therapy is a foundational part of pain management. Your manual therapy may include:
- Joint mobilization or manipulation
- Myofascial release
- Muscle energy technique
- Therapeutic massage
- Neural or visceral mobilization
- Trigger point techniques
- Passive range of motion
