Hip Pain

Hip pain is the general term used for a pain or discomfort that is felt in or around the patient’s hip joint.

Unfortunately hip pain is not always felt locally at the hip joint, it may be felt in the groin, thigh or buttocks region, making it particularly difficult to diagnose. Although modern technology has greatly assisted doctors and physical therapists with the diagnostic process over the past decade, it can still be a complicated joint to assess, causing many patients to put off starting their physical therapy for hip pain.

But, now with the help of x-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) they have been able to become a lot more exact with their hip pain diagnoses. Technology is now enabling physical therapists to develop and individualized therapy program for general hip pain like never before. Physical therapy for hip pain can also help individuals who are undergoing a total hip replacement, before and after surgery, making the recovery process much smoother.

Our physical therapists will work with your physician to help evaluate and treat your hip dysfunction and get you back to the activities that you love by using manual therapy, therapeutic modalities, and stretching/ strengthening exercises. Our physical therapy for hip pain can return you to an active pain free lifestyle.

Our physical therapists can treat the following causes of hip pain and discomfort:

  • Torn Labrum
  • Bursitis
  • Hip Arthritis

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

five stars Kevin RET Patient

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

five stars Elena RET Patient

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
