Hip Pain Treatment in Wasilla

We Give Solution

To Your Hip Pain

At Northern Edge Physical Therapy, we first address where the pain is originating from.

“I found it hard to sleep, hard to get out of bed. The pain radiated from my hip.”

Most people feel like they have tried everything to make hip pain go away but nothing provides long term relief.

At NEPT, we believe that pain is not the issue. Pain is a warning signal, like a stop sign.

Far too often, the medical field is quick to prescribe opiates and send their patients out the door. This may control pain for a period of time, but it simply addresses the symptoms without addressing the severe functional limitations that caused the pain.

At Northern Edge Physical Therapy, we first address where the pain is originating from. Most often pain is not from where you feel it, but is related to muscles and movement in other parts of the body that are not functioning correctly. Once we have interpreted your pain signals, we can then proceed with treatment. A person with back pain most often receives a combination of dry needling and movement therapy.

Many patients, after only a couple visits, have reported a substantial lessening of pain and a return to normalcy.
