Hip pain can make daily life and participation in leisure and sport unbearable. People young and old experience hip pain for a variety of reasons, and physiotherapy can be the solution for treating hip pain. If you are diagnosed and treated by a physiotherapist, you can ensure your hip pain will be reduced and your functionality increased.
Problems treated by our team include but are not limited to osteoarthritis, muscle tears, overuse injuries, labral tears, impingement and bursitis.
Hip pain can commence from a specific sporting or home injury, however, it can also develop from no apparent reason. Physiotherapists are experts in the diagnosis of your hip pain and identifying the structure(s) injured.
The areas in the hip that are usually affected are the joint itself, and the muscles, bursa, ligaments and tendons surrounding the joint. To understand the bio-mechanical structure of the hip is important as an incorrect diagnosis could lead to useless or ineffective treatment.
To ensure a correct diagnosis is determined, a physiotherapist will complete a thorough assessment and devise a treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs.
A combination of hands on therapy and rehabilitating exercises are implemented by our team to enable recovery for your hip. Hands on manipulative treatments such as joint mobility work to release tension in the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Where appropriate our team may also use dry needling in the hip region to release muscle tension and enable further release.
The rehabilitative exercises you are prescribed are tailored to you, so that you can move smoothly, and in a bio-mechanically balanced manner. Moreover, your practitioner will design a program that can be completed within your requirements.
