“Wishful Thinking That Your Hip Will Heal On Its Own Is Not A Viable Game Plan!”

“Wishful Thinking That Your Hip Will Heal On Its Own Is Not A Viable Game Plan!”

Hip Pain & Stiffness is ONE of the most common complaints we deal with in our practice.

And they will NOT simply vanish on their own. We hear from patients on a daily basis who have gone to their primary physicians for help, only to be told to take some painkillers and “see how it goes”. They are dealing with conditions like bursitis hip pain or even golf injury hip pain.

Instead of putting a proven hip pain treatment plan together, you start to believe your hip pain is just a part of your life you have to accept. Your new “normal”… STOP!

It may be time to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following hip pain signs or symptoms:

  • Snapping sounds or sensations in the groin/hip area
  • Sudden pain in the hip after a movement that stretches the groin area
  • Pain in the buttocks area that may radiate down the back of the leg (ischial bursitis)
  • Pain at the outside of the hip that worsens with certain movements such as walking, standing, or running
  • Stiffness or achy pain in groin/hip
  • Inability to stand/bear weight on the hip
  • Swelling over the hip
  • Painful clicking sounds when you move the hip

Our Approach to Treating Hip Pain

Our Approach to Treating Hip Pain

  • The Gray Method™ An approach invented by our owner, Dr. Scott Gray. The premise behind everything focuses on pinpointing the original CAUSE of your injury, pain, or stiffness, rather than just addressing the symptoms.

  • Dry Needling Dry needling is an advanced technique that uses very small needles to puncture the skin around stiff muscles. This treatment is a safe and effective way to eliminate pain, muscle tension, stiffness, and muscle spasms.

  • Functional Mobility & Strengthening- An approach that helps increase your overall mobility and strength to ensure your pain stays away long after rehab. Increased strength & mobility will help you heal your current pain or injury, prevent future injuries, improve your posture, prevent chronic diseases, and protect bone health.

  • Blood Flow Restriction Training- BFRT forces the blood to stay in the muscle longer, expediting the process of muscle fatigue and failure. The process stimulates the body’s ability to repair the muscle fibers, so recovery takes less time.
  • Gait Training- Your physical therapist will guide you in activities such as walking, running, stepping over objects, lifting your legs, and standing up. They will suggest changes to the way you move during these activities in order to reduce pain and prevent further injury.

  • Stability Training- Stability training involves performing exercises on an uneven surface to train your stabilizing muscles to work properly. Practicing these exercises regularly will facilitate communication between your muscles and brain, helping you balance and stay stable in your normal activities and exercises.

See What Our Clients Have To Say About Us

“I have been suffering with back and hip pain for a year. I started seeing my orthopedic doctor who sent me to physical therapy. I stopped after two weeks because the therapy I was receiving was not working and actually made it worse. I went for pain management and had three injections which did not work. Then I went to a chiropractor, but the traction did not work. Dr Scott Gray was highly recommended by my gym trainer, who I have been seeing for six years and I respect his opinion and guidance toward one’s physical fitness. I have been seeing Dr. Gray for almost ten weeks and my bulging disc pain is gone and he is now working on flexibility of my left hip,, which is being replaced in five months. I can’t explain how happy I am to have found Dr. Gray. His approach toward healing is incredible, as I am living proof that his method of physical therapy works!! At home, fully explained “homework” with visual guidelines has been so helpful in my healing process. I purchased his book for myself, and sent two others to friends who have been struggling with chronic pain for years. In my opinion, Dr. Gray’s knowledge of physical therapy is the best method I have ever experienced and I highly recommend him.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Hip Physical Therapy

Frequently Asked Questions About Hip Physical Therapy

Your doctor may have prescribed you medications such as muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, painkillers, or offered an injection. These “treatments” may provide temporary pain relief, but they do not provide a permanent solution to your pain.

There are tons of products out there that are marketed to “treat hip pain.” However, the majority of these products and supplements are not backed by real scientific research.

Practice caution before purchasing any device or supplement that claims to treat hip problems.

Hip replacement surgery is sometimes successful in treating severe cases of hip pain that impair your movement and interferes with your sleep and daily activities.

The main issues with hip replacement surgery are that it:

  • It’s the most invasive form of treatment
  • Requires a lot of recovery time post-surgery
  • Usually does not permanently fix your hip problem

Most hip injuries and pain are caused by underlying issues such as:

  • Weak muscles
  • Muscular imbalances (for example, strong quads but weak glutes, which are muscles that support your hips)
  • Tightness
  • Poor mobility (meaning your joints can’t move fully)
  • Overuse (meaning you perform too much repetitive movement before your body/hips can adjust)
  • Gait issues (problems with the way you move on foot)

A hip physical therapist will identify which underlying causes contributed to your hip problems and fix those causes with a combination of effective treatments.

Because when the underlying cause is fixed, you can expect permanent relief from hip pain and problems.

There are many hip conditions that have similar symptoms but require totally different treatments.

So, how will your hip physical therapist distinguish which hip condition you have if it has similar symptoms as another condition?

Your hip physical therapist will know exactly which questions to ask and which tests to perform to give you an accurate diagnosis. These questions and tests will also reveal the underlying cause of your hip problem.

Here are some of the questions and tests that you can expect during your first physical therapy appointment:

#1 Initial questions

You will answer some initial questions about your hip pain. It will help to bring notes about your symptoms, which treatments you’ve tried, and what makes your pain better or worse.

#2 Initial testing

Your hip physical therapist will combine your answers to the questions with specific testing to make an accurate diagnosis. Your physical therapist will guide you through initial testing such as:

  • Function Testing
  • Muscular Strength Testing
  • Range of Motion Testing

A hip physical therapist is a licensed Doctor of Physical Therapy who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of hip pain, injuries, and conditions.
