Hip Pain

There are a number of different reasons that you can be experiencing hip pain. You have had an accident or injury causing some damage to the hip or may be due to the way you are exercising or the pain may have just come on for no reason. Below are some examples of causes of hip pain. Our physiotherapists at Physiocomestoyou can assess you and then work out the problem causing the pain and treat it to get rid of the pain. If you have had hip surgery our physios can help you rehab back to the hobbies and sports you enjoy.

The ring of cartilage lining the hip joint socket, known as the labrum, is prone to tearing or getting trapped. The ache that is frequently felt is either deep in your buttocks, above your hip, or in your groin. The primary activities that typically result in the pain are twisting, a lot of walking or athletic activity, squatting, and heavy lifting. There may occasionally be snapping, clicking, or a sensation that your leg might give way. An MRI scan is frequently necessary with this kind of damage in order to pinpoint the precise source of the symptoms.

A thorough physical assessment can be performed by our physiotherapists. They will suggest that you see a renowned hip consultant if they believe this to be the source of your pain.

A groin strain affects one or more of the tendons and muscles that are attached to the groin and can occur suddenly or gradually. Groin pain can also be caused by “hernias” and stress in the area of the pubic symphysis, which joins your pubic bones. Football and other kicking sports are common places for groin issues to arise, but they can occur in any sport where there is a lot of movement in the area around the groin.

If you think you may have a groin strain, it’s critical to begin physiotherapy right away. The longer you put off treatment in the hopes that the pain will go away, the longer it will take you to heal. At Physio Comes to You, one of our sports physiotherapists may do a thorough evaluation on you, including specialised testing to provide a diagnosis. After determining the cause of your groin pain, they can treat you with a variety of techniques to speed up your recovery, including massage, myofascial release, acupuncture, taping, and a tailored exercise regimen. Additionally, they will be able to offer advice on exercises you may take to maintain your fitness levels while undergoing rehabilitation.

One of the quadriceps muscles in your front thigh, the rectus femoris, can become strained while participating in sports, especially kicking sports, especially if it’s tight.

Our physiotherapists can provide guidance on anti-inflammatory medications, massage, acupuncture, manual therapy, and exercises to help strengthen and rehabilitate your rectus femoris muscle so you can resume your sports activities.

A bursa is a sac filled with fluid located around the hip, situated between tendons and bone. Their purpose is to ensure a smooth gliding surface for mobility. Inflammation can sometimes occur in these bursae, leading to pain. The primary bursa is located near the top of your hip, and when it becomes inflamed, it can cause a burning discomfort that worsens when you lie on that side, walk, or climb stairs. Morning pain is often severe when this bursa is irritated. Another bursa, known as the ischial bursa, can also become inflamed, causing pain in the upper buttock region, especially when sitting still or climbing inclines.

Physiotherapy can be beneficial by addressing any biomechanical issues in your walking or running gait. Additionally, physiotherapists can provide gluteal strengthening exercises and stretches for tight muscles. Core stability exercises are also frequently helpful. In some cases, a corticosteroid injection may be required to alleviate irritation before resuming activities. We can recommend the best physicians to perform this procedure.

If you have a history of hip discomfort, low bone density, and are older, it’s important to be cautious. The middle portion of the bones that make up the hip joint can weaken and become more brittle, potentially leading to hip fractures. Typically, there is no pain until a fracture occurs, which can result from a fall or sudden twist.

Physio Comes to You offers a unique bone conditioning program with easy-to-follow training videos designed to strengthen your bones and the area around your hips, reducing the risk of fractures. If you have experienced a hip fracture, one of our physiotherapists can visit you at home to help strengthen the area surrounding your hip and improve your range of motion, enabling you to return to your previous activities.

Osteoarthritis is a condition that can affect every joint in the body. It is caused by a process known as “wear and tear,” in which the cartilage that covers the portion of bone that comprises the joint gradually wears away over time. Inflammation of the muscular tendons and joint lining results from the immune system going awry and attacking the body instead of protecting it, a condition known as rheumatoid arthritis. The body’s arthritic joints become painful and stiff in both situations. Occasionally, the joints may also become heated and inflamed. It is not uncommon to wake up in the morning stiff. Joint-supporting muscles frequently weaken with age, making it harder to perform several daily tasks.

We can provide you with experienced physiotherapists who will come to your home and work with you to help manage your condition. During the initial assessment, the physiotherapist will comprehensively evaluate your muscle strength, joint mobility, posture, function, and mobility aids. Following the assessment, the physiotherapist will discuss recommended treatments with you and assist you in setting goals to maximise your potential at home, work, and in social settings. These treatments may include advice on using ice, exercise programs, massage, taping, acupuncture, and mobility plans, among others.

Furthermore, we can arrange for occupational therapists to visit your home. They specialise in helping individuals regain the ability to participate in meaningful activities and maintain or achieve their highest level of independence. Some of the services they offer include:

  • Home evaluations that may involve making adjustments such as rearranging furniture, adding ramps, widening doors, installing grab bars, and fitting adapted toilet seats.
  • Wheelchair assessments
  • Splinting

The pain we experience immediately after injuring ourselves and during the healing process is known as acute pain. Chronic pain, on the other hand, refers to pain that persists even after the healing process is complete. It is often challenging to establish a clear link between the original injury, which may have healed a long time ago, and the ongoing pain. Chemical changes in the brain and spinal cord redirect signals to the pain centres in the brain, allowing pain to be perceived in response to various sensations, including movement, touch, pressure, and stretching. Sometimes, pain can be triggered by changes in weather, mood, thoughts, or even without any external stimulation.

Physiotherapy for chronic pain aims to address not only the pain itself but also the various associated issues. In addition to providing pain relief, physiotherapists assist in managing chronic pain through goal setting, gradual exercise programs, and guidance on coping with flare-ups and negative thought patterns. The ultimate goal is to help individuals regain their previous level of participation in work, sports, and leisure activities, as it was before the onset of chronic pain. Additionally, we can recommend highly qualified pain consultants who can provide further assistance.

The sensation of hip snapping can have various underlying causes. It may result from the iliopsoas muscle snapping over the front of the hip, the iliotibial band or gluteus medius tendon snapping over the outside of the hip, or it could originate deep within the hip joint itself.

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in identifying the source of the snapping sensation and the contributing factors, such as muscle weakness or tightness. Once the cause is determined, physiotherapists can employ techniques like myofascial release, soft tissue therapy, core stability exercises, and specific stretching and strengthening exercises as part of the appropriate treatment plan.

Stress fractures can occur in various areas of the hip, including the hip joint socket, thigh bone, and the lower region of the pelvis. If a stress fracture is suspected, your physiotherapist will recommend consulting a hip specialist who can arrange for appropriate scans and provide guidance on the necessary rest and treatment. During the recovery process, your physiotherapist can offer advice on non-weight-bearing exercises, and once you have fully healed, they can assist you in returning to full function.

These are the major pelvic joints, and they may experience excessive movement or become rigid, leading to strain on nearby structures and resulting in pain in the groin or buttocks, particularly during activities like turning in bed or weight-bearing exercises.

Physiotherapy can play a crucial role in identifying whether the pain is related to a sacroiliac joint issue. This is done through a full examination and specific tests. Treatment options may include acupuncture, taping, manual therapy, targeted stretching exercises for tight areas, and guidance on specific movements to enhance pelvic stability.

This condition involves the femur and can lead to inner knee pain, often affecting adolescent boys more frequently, and excess weight might be a contributing factor. It can involve the growth plate sliding over the femur suddenly or gradually.

Specifically affecting boys, this condition involves the deterioration of bone above the top of the thigh bone, known as the femoral head. Common symptoms include a limp and pain in the knee, groin, and thigh. Hip mobility may be restricted and stiff in certain areas.

Physiotherapy can offer suitable exercises and guidance to address this condition.

Multiple nerves that pass through and around the groin area are vulnerable to entrapment. Your physiotherapist can assess whether a medical referral is necessary and if there are suspicions of nerve entrapment.

Pain can originate in the lower back and then refer to the hips and groin. The area can also be referred to by trigger points in muscles that are not in the groin or pelvis.

Before conducting a comprehensive physical examination, the physiotherapist will gather a detailed history of your symptoms and previous medical conditions. Your symptoms may have various potential causes that a physiotherapist is not qualified to address or that require medical advice from a general practitioner (GP) or a specialised physician or consultant. Some of these reasons include:

  • Cardiovascular Symptoms
  • Respiratory (Breathing) Symptoms
  • Gynaecological Symptoms
  • Urinary Or Genital Symptoms
  • Digestive Symptoms
  • Immune System Symptoms
  • Lymph System Symptoms
  • Hormonal Symptoms
  • Neurological Symptoms
  • Dermatological (Skin) Symptoms
  • Medication Side-Effects
  • Virus
  • Infection
  • Cancer
  • Disease Process
  • Psychological Problem i.e. Depression, Anxiety
