Living Well Class Focuses on Hip Pain

San Jose, CA (November 6, 2013) – A comprehensive workshop entitled “Help with Hip Pain” will be presented by O’Connor sports medicine physician Michael Henehan, DO, on Thursday, November 14, 2013. Community members are invited to attend free of charge.

Participants will learn about the causes of hip pain and what you can do about it. The presentation will focus on understanding how the hips work, and exercises that will help keep your range of motion and hip function.

Dr. Henehan will review different exercises that can be used to strengthen and improve the flexibility and endurance of the hips – exercises that are effective, easy to do, focus on important muscular structures and only take ten minutes to do.

“Daily use of these exercises, even when the hips feel good, will help keep them healthy and strong,” Dr. Henehan says. “Regular physical activity is also recommended to compliment the hip stretches,” he added.

Dr. Henehan is a graduate of the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and the San Jose Medical Center Family Practice Residency Program. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice and has a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in sports medicine through the American Board of Family Practice. As the team physician for San Jose State University athletics, Dr. Henehan brings special expertise in orthopedic and sports medicine to his work.
