Hip Pain and Injury

Post Injury Repair and Pain Relief for Hips

Located in Manhattan 28th ST, NYC

How We Help

The hips and pelvis are kind of like the anatomical Grand Central station of the human body. The hips and pelvis form the center of gravity that helps maintain balance and are the connection structures where the lower body, spine and upper body intersect.

For example, the Latissimus Dorsi muscle runs from the upper part of the arm, underneath the armpit and creates a V shape that blends into the ThoracoLumbar Fascia of the low back. Tightness and dysfunction in the "Lats" can have a sizable impact on the shoulder, low back, pelvis and even lower body due to its specific anatomical connections.

 

While this of course isn't always the case, the point is that issues in the hips and pelvis must be viewed as part of the entire human kinetic chain when evaluating someone for many injuries all over the body.

Injuries and conditions that On Your Mark's team of expert massage therapists and personal trainers can help you with include:

 

  • ITB (Illiotibial Band) Pain

  • Muscle Soreness and Trigger Points

  • Sciatica

  • Piriformis Syndrome

  • Hamstring Strains

  • Bursitis

  • Hip Joint Impingement 

  • Hip Labrum Tears

  • Groin Strains (Adductors)

  • Hip Flexor Tightness and Pain

About Our Treatments

Our approach to injury prevention and recovery is a customized one that incorporates a wide variety of advanced and proven methods to produce optimal treatment outcomes. While there are evidence-based protocols and guidelines that we of course follow, we also treat each person and their injury as unique to the client's particular needs and goals.
 

Our trainers and therapists integrate a wide range of treatment strategies and exercise intervention as part of a comprehensive plan. We connect the dots to what is going on lower and higher in the kinetic chain - at the at the foot and ankle, knee, spine and upper body - so that we understand how everything fits together.

 

Tightness in both calves, a collapsed arch on one foot, a length discrepancy, a previous knee surgery or lumbar spine injury could all be related to issues in the hips and pelvis, whether it is cause and affect or just correlation. Likewise, forward head posture and an excessive kyphosis in the thoracic spine can change the position of the low back and pelvis in significant ways.

This is why we can incorporate any and all of the following treatment interventions:

  • Postural and Movement Assessments

  • Range of Motion and Muscle Testing

  • Active Release Tecnhniques

  • Deep Tissue and Sports Massage

  • Trigger Point Therapy

  • Myofascial Release

  • Activation Exercises for Glutes and Core Muscles

  • Corrective Exercises

  • Strength Training

  • Balance and Functional Training
