Treating the hip involves immense knowledge of diagnosis patterns, injury trends and a careful subjective history gathering from the client. Often hip injuries are not acute, in that they are not traumatic, with the exception of muscle tears and tailbone fractures. Most of the time, people with hip pain are dealing with chronic tightness, overuse, nerve irritation, postural issues, lifestyle position pain (sitting, standing too much), and arthritis. Often injuries such as labral tears and stress fractures are missed due to a lack of joint motion evaluation and hands-on treatment. We focus on muscle balance and spine health evaluation, as well as knee alignment to fix the root of the hip problem, and get to the primary diagnosis. Hip issues are often diagnosed with a combination of medical films such as x-rays, bone scans, and MRIs or MRA’s (arthrograms, dye contrast).
