I have a friend in Dallas who has lateral hip pain. The pain is referred down his lateral leg and he gets a feeling of pins and needles in his feet. He presses a certain spot in his lateral hip and he can recreate this pain that he feels. Do you know any good PT’s in the Dallas area who specialize in hips? Thanks in advance.
Has he seen a doctor yet? I know his doctor should be able to refer him to someone he/she knows and likes to work with. Baylor, UT Southwestern and Medical City hospitals have a large number of network with PTs. I think that might be his best way of approaching his issue. Also if it’s prescribed by his doctor his insurance could pay for it as well. He might only need to see a chiropractor instead of a PT, which is the reason why he needs to get evaluated by an MD.
Sounds like he might have some fascial issues and possibly active trigger points. Once he cleared by the doc, a few good bodywork sessions and home care plan will make a big difference. I am located in the Dallas area, if he wants to get in touch with me. www.trishfortune.com
