Chronic Hip Pain at 25… HEALED with Astym therapy

I first came to rehab after being referred by my orthopedic surgeon. I had suffered from chronic pain in my left hip for several years due to over exercise. It was so painful, I was unable to run, kickbox, play tennis or do other physical activities to which I was accustomed. What’s worse, the pain was so severe that it was difficult for me to do normal daily activities such as stand for a long period of time, walk, or climb stairs. I began working with Sarah Giroux, DPT and attended my personalized physical therapy session twice a week and also did my assigned exercises and stretches at home. I felt like Sarah was someone who really cared about my injury and was determined to make my situation better. I am still living without pain today. I truly never thought I would be able to do certain activities again, which was depressing considering my age was 25. I am now running 4 days a week, doing Pilates once a week, playing tennis twice a week and I am also able to complete my performances and rehearsals for my music without any pain in my hip. It is like I’m a different person. I now no longer grimace and limp when walking up or down stairs. I have already referred others to work with Sarah and I owe her a huge debt of gratitude for healing something that I thought would be a life-long problem.
