Hip therapist body language

Just like the ball and socket joint of the shoulder, the hip joint has a labrum. This is a circular layer of cartilage which surrounds the outer part of the acetabulum effectively making the socket deeper and so helping provide more stability. Labrum tears are a common injury to the hip joint.

The key to your pain relief is understanding the cause of your symptoms through holistic assessment, treating related contracted muscle and fascia and increasing your awareness of what you can do to contribute to your own health and well-being.

When your physical therapist performs an initial evaluation and assessment for your hip FAI, he or she may find weakness around the muscles of your hip. Working on hip strengthening may be one component of your exercise program for hip FAI. Exercises that you may do in PT (or as part of a home exercise program ) may include:

If your hip pain is accompanied by a pressure or soreness in the pelvic area that radiates towards the thighs before the 37th week of pregnancy, it is important to seek out your health care provider. This can be a sign of preterm labor.

 · The hip flexor is responsible for significant leg movement, including lifting your thigh. When you strain the muscles of your hip flexor, they might tear,...

The hip is the largest joint in the human body. It supports most of the body's weight and is key to maintaining balance. Because the hip joint and hip region are so crucial to movement, arthritis and bursitis in the area can be especially painful. Chronic hip pain is common as the body ages, but there are various exercises and lifestyle changes you can introduce to treat a painful hip. Follow these steps to help reduce your hip pain.

We maintain that successful hip pain treatment depends on the diagnostic precision.
Because of the limited ability of medical imaging to reveal all causes of the joint problem, we conduct computerized Gait (walking) analysis with highly advanced technological equipment. Our Gait (walking) analysis Lab is the first outpatient facility in NYC providing these types of services. The various data acquired through Gait analysis allows very precise diagnosis of movement pattern dysfunction in the hip joint and pelvis. Rehabilitation to address abnormal movement patterns and muscle weakness may help to restore joint precision and dynamic stability, reduce excessive stresses, and allow healing of injured tissues.( Marcie Harris-Hayes et al, 2016)
We use diagnostic ultrasonography and X-ray imagery to analyze the integrity of the tissues around the hip joint as well as to rule out bone anomalies and anatomical misalignments. If, however, these procedures fail to explain patients symptoms we may opt to ordering the MRI or CT scan study.
The most precise imaging diagnosis of early hip disease at this time is CT-scan. However, the specific CT-scan has an enormous dose of radiation. It should not be used initially, unless surgery is considered. The newest ultrasonography methods of diagnosis combined with X-ray and MRI and good clinical examination should be sufficient to establish proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
Based on Gait analysis data and clinical examination our pain treatment focuses on elimination of the faulty movements and rebuilding strength and coordination of the hip, lumbo-pelvic area . We also use some of our Gait lab equipment for feedback training of precise hip movement. We
use combination of DNS method, Shirley Saharmann method, Chris Power’s hip strategy method as well as video and force plates’ feed-back training. Our extensive rehabilitation program integrates the aforementioned methods with various manual techniques. If the integrity of the tendons or the muscle tissues is affected, we combine our rehabilitation protocols with biological treatment. Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is used to regenerate damaged tendons and muscles. Frequently hip problems arise due to asymmetrical weight bearing. Our CAREN (computer assisted rehabilitation environment) therapy is breakthrough rehabilitation technology available for the first time in NYC (please review our slide presentation) is able to detect this with its innovative force plate and motion capture analysis. The feedback/feed forward treatment by CAREN is most unique in the field of modern rehabilitation. Please check out our pages for the CAREN (computer assisted rehabilitation environment), running gait lab, the alter-g treadmill, and shockwave therapy to see how these technologies can help you.
Our extensive rehabilitation program integrates the aforementioned methods with various manual techniques. If the integrity of the tendons or the muscle tissues is affected, we combine our rehabilitation protocols with biological regenerative treatment such as ESWT( Extracorporeal shockwave therapy ).
ESWT is used to regenerate damaged tendons and muscles.

EZ-ON vest
Another option for children in spica casts is called the modified EZ-ON vest. This vest is for children aged 1 to 12 and weighing from 20 to 100 pounds. The 101M2 fits children better who are 5-12 years old, 65-100 pounds. The M203-XS fits snugger on children 1-5 years of age, 20-65 pounds. When using the modified EZ- ON vest, your child must travel lying down in the rear seat of the vehicle. See EZ-ON for referral to a distributor in your area. EZ On Vests are approximately $150.

If you have questions, please contact Children's Orthopeadic Clinic or request a referral from your pediatrician.
