Relieve hip pain with the help of expert physiotherapists

The main function of the hip joint is dynamic stability and weight-bearing capabilities. This ball and socket joint allows three-dimensional movement and attaches to many muscles and ligaments. Dysfunction at the hip can cause pain in the groin, inner thigh, buttocks, knees and lower back.

Hip Arthritis

Degeneration of the hip cartilage (labrum) causes pain and inflammation and reduced shock absorption. You may experience stiffness that makes it difficult to walk or flex the hip joint.

Femoroacetabular Impingement

In FAI, bone spurs can form in the ball and/or socket of the hip joint. The three types of FAI include pincer, cam, and combined impingement. Improving hip biomechanics can help reduce symptoms.

Hip Bursitis

A common source of lateral hip pain is trochanteric bursitis. The bursitis tends to coincide with gluteus medius tendinopathy. Trochanteric bursitis is an overuse injury and contributed by muscle weakness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hip pain can definitely refer from the lumbar spine. The physiotherapist will assess both your lower back and hips to determine the source of the issue. Regardless of what area is causing the hip pain, our physios will help settle down the pain and develop a management plan.

Although cortisone injections can provide some pain relief to your hip pain, it isn't recommended as the first treatment strategy. There are many options for natural pain relief such as heat packs, massage, activity modification and gentle exercises.

If you have hip bursitis the most likely cause is tissue overload and muscle imbalances that need to be addressed.

Hip pain during sleep generally occurs when sleeping on your affected side. To help ease the pain, you could try to sleep on the opposite side and put a pillow between your knees. The pillow needs to be thick enough to keep your thighs parallel to each other. If both hips are sore, you can try sleeping on your back with a pillow under your knees.

Sitting for prolonged periods can cause increased pressure in your hips, lower back and cause muscles to shorten (e.g. hip flexors and hamstrings).

It is important to get up regularly and perform some basic hip mobility exercises to ensure good circulation and release built-up tension.
