Hip Pain Treatment FAQs 

What Causes Hip Pain?

Hip pain has many causes, including injury, overuse, or underlying conditions such as osteoarthritis, muscle imbalances, strains, and tendinopathy.

How To Do Physical Therapy Roll for Hip Pain?

A foam roller is a helpful tool to reduce hip pain. Physical therapists regularly instruct patients on how to use the roller to release tight muscles and joints. Using the roller about 20 times from each direction under the body utilizes the body’s weight to help loosen tightness. Pay particular attention to painful areas, spending extra time gently rolling back and forth until you feel the muscles release the tension. 

How Long Does Physical Therapy Take To Cure Hip Pain?

Physical therapy usually treats hip pain over about 6 weeks to completely go away and stay away, but that depends on the underlying cause of the hip pain. A significant decrease in pain usually occurs within 3 weeks, with many patients feeling better after just one physical therapy session.

When to See a Physical Therapist For Hip Pain?

If you have injured a hip, and after 2 weeks, symptoms interfere with daily activities like standing, sitting, sleeping, climbing stairs, etc., see a physical therapist. If you have an underlying condition like arthritis that causes hip pain, see your physical therapist. For muscle strains, overuse, or other conditions that may creep up over time, see a physical therapist to reduce the risk of future problems and get back to living pain-free now.
