Pain in the body can originate simply from muscle tightness or weakness. Therefore, the preferred route to relieve pain in physical therapy is through loosening and strengthening of the muscles around the problem area.
One of the main causes of hip pain is from prolonged sitting. Whether it be at your desk or in your car, the repeated lack of movement over time leads to chronic hip pain.
Issues of the hip can radiate to the lower back, knees, or ankles. So in order to prevent the pain all together, hip stabilization is crucial. By completing particular strength movements you improve the function and quality of the muscles in your pelvis and hip regions.
