Laser Therapy For Hip and Groin Pain
Hip joints are structured to support our bodies in standing positions and during dynamic movements. They are our bodies largest ball and socket joint, where the round, ball-like top of your thigh bone (femur) fits tightly into the cup-like part of your pelvis. This joint is lubricated with cartilage, allowing you to have smooth hip movement in many directions.
Over time, this joint can be damaged by degeneration or injury. The surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments can get overused or the bone can be fractured from trauma resulting in pain and/or stiffness.
