Hi Frustrated Hip Pain Sufferer,

How long have you had pain?

How long have you been unable to run, or lift, or sit down at your desk to work?

If it’s been a while then you should know this: You’re not alone. Hip pain is tough to deal with and often frustrates people like you for months or years. We understand what you’re going through because we’ve seen it before.

Most hip pain comes on slowly and builds over time so that you don’t even remember how or when it started but all of the sudden you wake up one day and it’s killing you and you can’t enjoy life any more.

Now it hurts to sit, hurts to stand, hurts to lie on your side. Sound familiar? How can one issue hurt with so many different activities?

You’ve tried resting a few days, maybe even a few weeks, until your hip doesn’t bother with normal daily activities but whenever you try to return to more athletic pursuits your hip hurts again and you’re back to square one.

You’re on the right track with some strategic rest but you’re missing something in the middle that prevents your pain from coming back. We’d say that thing is physical therapy.

How can a physical therapist at Gotham Physical Therapy help you?

We specialize in helping active New Yorkers in their 20s, 30s, and 40s understand their hip pain so they can take charge of it instead of it taking charge of them. Our ultimate goal is for you to be EMPOWERED to help yourself. We do that by providing education about your condition and reassurance that you can get better with the right plan.

Our plans focus on a little hands-on therapy and a whole lot of specific therapeutic exercise to restore strength to your hip joint and the body around it. We won’t waste your time with passive modalities like ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or heat that have been shown to have no effect in the long run. No, we want you getting active with the right exercise at the right time because it alone has the power to improve the health of the muscles, bones, and other tissues.

Therapeutic exercise also does something much more subtle and important. It reinforces to you and your brain and nervous system that your hip is strong and healthy, which decreases the pain response you get every time you use your hip. If that sounds a little weird, you’re not alone, but read this to really get an understanding of how PT works.

If you’re ready to see for yourself how you can make positive changes now then arrange to have a licensed doctor of physical therapy call you. We’d love to talk to you and answer your questions so that you’ll know even before you set foot in our clinic that we’re the right people to help you!

Maybe you’re thinking, “That sounds great, but I had an MRI and it shows I have a labral tear…
…Or arthritis…
…Or a cam lesion…
…Or hip impingement…
…Or [insert some other pathology here]…
…so I need surgery.”

Fortunately for you, there’s a good chance you don’t need surgery, even if you do have some “structural damage” that shows on imaging. Did you know that many people with pain-free hips probably have the same thing going on inside their hips as well? It’s true. One example: 70 adults (average age 26) with NO HIP PAIN volunteered to have both hips examined with MRI. The results are surprising: 27 (38.6%) had labral tears.

This result isn’t surprising to us, though, as we have seen this trend of “damage” not equaling pain repeat itself over and over in hips, backs, shoulders, ankles, necks…EVERY body part. Pain is a tricky thing.

But that has a very important implication for you. No matter what’s going on in your hip, there’s a good chance it can be made to hurt less while you get back to doing the things you like to do. It’s not easy, it takes dedication and perseverance, but it can be done, and we can show you how. There is hope for relief without surgery, without a lifetime of painkillers, and best yet, without giving up the activities you love!

Who can we help? Well, if you’re an active New Yorker in your 20s, 30s, or 40s and you can say “yes” to any of the following, then there’s a good chance we’ll be able to help you:

  • You have pain deep in your groin or in your buttocks
  • You get pain at night and wake up feeling worse than you did in the day
  • You can’t lay on your side because of pain
  • You can’t squat as deep as you’d like without it hurting
  • You have pain with just sitting
  • Your pain has been going on for months or years
  • Or, your pain just started a week ago
  • You can walk short distances but anything more than several blocks puts you in pain for the next day.

If any of that sounds like you and you’d like to know how we can help you then take the next step.

If you’re still uncertain about physical therapy or you’re just not ready to make a decision yet then don’t worry. We know you’d be better off if you came in to see us without delay, but we respect your decision.

In the meantime, take our free report with SEVEN tips to help ease your hip pain.

We can’t guarantee that implementing the tips inside will cure you completely but we’re fairly certain at least one of them will be something you haven’t tried before and it will reduce your suffering.

When you realize what a little generic advice like that can do we’re confident that you’ll call us up and ask for some specialized, hands-on physical therapy to get you back to the life you had before all your hip pain began! Are you ready?

See who else has been EMPOWERED at Gotham PT:

Edward S.

“I spent about three months in early 2017 receiving PT at Gotham and they were excellent. Over the last ten years I’ve received PT at five different places, so I’ve learned what to look for. In this case, Gotham treated my complicated hip replacement. The original hip prosthetic had become infected, so it was removed and a month long regime of intravenous antibiotics was done. I came to Gotham using a taxi, then a walker, and a little later, a cane. I finished my PT walking out on my own two feet.

Sarah K.

“I went to Gotham for plantar fasciitis and worked with William Lee for 3 months, and he was great! They’re so helpful and the treatment was really effective. I would definitely recommend them.”

Samantha K.

“I came to Gotham Physical Therapy after a pretty serious procedure called OATS, which was done on both my knee and my ankle. The recovery included 3 months of complete non-weight bearing and then gradually getting back on my feet. I started with Dr. William Lee ~2-2.5 months into my recovery to begin building strength back and it was the beginning of an amazing program. Not only am I back to normal, I’m better than I ever was with regard to running, jumping, and strength training. Having been an athlete for most of my life, I was afraid I would never be able to even consider sports again, but thanks to Gotham PT I can get back on the soccer field.
