Hip

The hip, like the shoulder, is a ball-and-socket joint that allows for multi-plane motion. As such, it can develop impingement, bursitis, tendinitis, labral tears, and ligament damage similar to the shoulder. The hard part is that we have to be able to walk on it!  Physical Therapists can help you to improve your gait mechanics, get you fitted in orthotics and/or proper shoes, and re-train you with proper exercises to help improve joint forces and muscular loading in the hips with weight-bearing exercises.
