The hip joint is the largest joint in the body and responsible for bearing much of the body’s weight during movement. A painful hip condition can drastically decrease one’s ability to properly function throughout the day and cause extreme uncomfortableness.
Physical Therapy for hip pain can be extremely beneficial. Research has indicated that Physical Therapy can sometimes be just as effective as surgery for hip-related medical conditions. This is why it is crucial to try physical therapy for several months before making the decision to have surgery, since surgery is expensive with possibly risky complications.
