Your hip flexors are the muscles chiefly responsible for moving the knees and for bending over. If you injure your hip flexor muscles, you may experience pain and stiffness when doing certain motions. The most common cause of hip flexor pain is straining your muscles. Strains can range from mild to severe, but virtual physical therapy can help provide you relief.
Are you wondering how to relieve hip flexor pain? Hip pain can be debilitating, but virtual physical therapy is an effective and safe way to manage your symptoms at home.
How a virtual physical therapist can help you relieve hip flexor pain
Virtual physical therapy works very similarly to in-person clinic visits. Through a device, you will see a physical therapist who will perform an evaluation to determine the cause of your hip flexor pain and how to best address it. They will then recommend a treatment plan that usually includes targeted exercises for the hip flexor muscles.
These exercises can help strengthen the hip flexor muscles, which can reduce stress and tension that accumulates from sitting during the day. They may also include specific stretches for the hip flexors. Stretching is important for the health of any muscle to reduce stiffness, which may contribute to pain. Stretching can also improve your range of motion. This can make it easier to stand up and sit down, or even improve your ability to bend over without feeling pain.
