Find relief with Grelot Physical Therapy:
At Grelot Physical Therapy, we are equipped to treat any hip or knee pain you may be experiencing. At your initial appointment, you will be greeted by one of our Mobile physical therapists, who will examine your hips and knees for any structural damage or misalignment. They will also evaluate your gait, stance, posture, and range of motion. After your evaluation is complete, your physical therapist will design a personalized treatment plan, based on your needs and goals. Treatment plans will focus on relieving pain, normalizing joint function, and relieving any abnormal stresses on your hips and knees.
Your treatment plan will include targeted stretches and exercises, aimed at stabilizing any weakness in the hips and knees. The exercises may vary depending on your condition; for example, research has demonstrated that those suffering from kneecap pain tend to respond better to exercises that focus on strengthening both the hips and knees, rather than just focusing on the knees alone. Core strengthening exercises targeting the lower abdominal muscle groups, lower back muscle groups, or pelvic muscles may also be prescribed. Core exercises are aimed at improving your posture and equalizing the weight load on both sides of your body.
You may be prescribed with additional treatments as our physical therapist deems fit, such as massage therapy, taping, ice, and heat therapy, dry needling or other soft tissue treatments. These are all aimed at alleviating your pain and promoting the healing of your damaged hip and/or knee issues.
If you are suffering from hip and/or knee pain, don’t hesitate to contact Grelot Physical Therapy today for a consultation. Treatment plans will be discussed with one of our licensed Mobile physical therapists, so you don’t have to wait for relief.
