Hip issues are one of the more common complaints we hear in the clinic and online in our inbox. It is more than likely you have dealt with hip pain or a hip issue at some point in your life. What's crazy is there are so many people dealing with low-level hip issues and far too often these people wait until it is a serious problem to address it. Not being proactive about your health and addressing issues before they become a bigger problem is why we have clinical jobs as physical therapists. Our Hip Prehab Program is the answer to changing this narrative. In this article, you'll learn more about our hip prehab program including an inside look at the program's content and the value of prehab!

Chronic groin pain canย literally be a pain in the butt. The groin area is home to a multitude of different muscles, tendons, ligaments, and most importantly your private areas! Therefore, many times it's hard to pinpoint the exact area of pain and thus when it comes groin rehab, I often times take the approach ofย strengthening everything and building tissue resiliency of all the muscles in that region. You can never go wrong with a strong and bullet-proof groin complex. Much like the sacroiliac joint which relies on all the muscles surrounding it to provide stability, a concept known as force closure, I treat the groin region similarly. The adductors, hamstrings, hip flexors, glutes, and most importantly the lower abdominals must all work in unison to provide stability to the groin complex. In this article, I will take you through a sample groin pain rehab program I use with patients in the clinic to bullet-proof every muscle in the groin!
