Your hip joint is a ball and socket joint. Your hip is designed to allow for movement in almost every direction, it allows for mobility when you are walking and stability when you are standing or weight bearing.
Your hip joint is strong but it isn’t indestructible. With age and usage your cartilage can wear down or become damaged and muscles and tendons in your hip can get overused. Your hip bone itself can also be fractured during a fall or other injury.
Any of the below conditions can lead to hip pain:
- Hip labrum tear
- Femoral Acetabular Impingement (FAI)
- Hamstring injury
- Thigh muscle strain
- Hip arthritis
- Greater Trochanteric pain syndrome
- piriformis syndrome/ glutes dysfunction.
How can Physiotherapy help me?
First we will examine the area. We will assess your hip joint, lower back and pelvis to ensure that we have a clear diagnosis of your problem. Once we have a diagnosis we can identify the treatment interventions we need to implement and speed up the process of recovery. As with most injuries involving the muscles and joints, exercise is a crucial part in maintaining function and strengthening the area in order to reduce long term pain and dysfunction. We provide a mix of hands-on treatment and exercise led therapy to educate you to be able to look after your body.
