Patient Testimonial

"Lisa, I'm excited to continue the next chapter of my professional career at Charlotte Ballet. I want you to know that my foot feels amazing. Sometimes I press on the back of my heel where I had so much pain with barely any pressure and now I have none. It’s hard for me to believe but I give you and your team all of my thanks!!"

Injury Corner

Snapping Hip Syndrome

Snapping hip syndrome is a common injury where tendons of the hip "snap" or have an audible "pop" over a bony area or from intra-articular pathology. There are 3 types of snapping hip: external, internal or intra-articular.

External snapping hip involves the iliotibial band, also known as IT band, or gluteus maximus tendon slipping over the greater trochanter of the femur.

Internal snapping hip involves the iliopsoas tendon moving over the femoral head, iliopectineal eminence, the lesser trochanter of the femur or AIIS, anterior inferior iliac spine.

Intra-articular snapping hip involves pathology inside the hip joint such as a labral tear or a loose-body within the joint.

In physical therapy, we work to reduce tendon inflammation and improve flexibility by means of manual therapy, stretching and modalities such as iontophoresis patching, laser therapy, trigger point dry needling and cryotherapy. We also use PNF techniques to promote appropriate muscle use and proper mechanics, strengthening the correct muscles to reduce overuse of compensatory muscles.


We want to hear from you!

One of the best kinds of compliments we can receive is a testimonial from you! Google is where most people search for local services online, and we'd love it if you can go on there and write a little something about us. It's a very simple form and will help us out tremendously in getting the word out there! We really appreciate your support and thank you for being part of our family!
