Hip pain is a common reason that patients come to see us here at MPOWER Physical Therapy. Hip pain may stem from a variety of conditions like arthritis, bursitis, hip dysplasia, labral tears, and more. Luckily, physical therapy can often relieve hip pain and sometimes stop it completely.
If you are suffering from hip pain, seek help from a physical therapist near you. While you wait for your physical therapy appointment, try these 5 at-home exercises.
