Understanding and Treating Hip Pain
Many middle-age adults experience hip pain that can begin to hinder their day-to-day life and stop them from maintaining their active lifestyle. Most hip pain at this age is muscular rather than arthritic; it is caused by inflammation in the bursa of the hip, or a type of tendonitis in the surrounding muscles. The hip pain adults may experience can be very painful and make their hip tender or the area from the hip to the knee uncomfortable. Hip strengthening isn’t something we think about as we grow older, but some conditioning can save you pain in the long run. Listen to Doctor of Physical Therapy, Brianna Hoffarthdiscusses different Physical Therapy methods that can calm and strengthen your hip muscles before it becomes too painful.
