Physiotherapy for Hip Pain

Hip problems are typical for many age groups. Pain may be mainly because of local structures within or around the hip or groin, or, may be referred from additional options, for example; the lower back, pelvis or even SIJ (Sacro-Iliac Joint). The way your hip joint works, it can also suffer from the lower limb biomechanics including your knee, foot and ankle and also your thigh and calf muscles.

What could be causing my hip pain? 

With the hip joint and the surrounding structures having such a complex relationship with each other, diagnosis and evaluation of the source of hip pain can be quite difficult.

  • Lower back structures

  • Strength as well ascontrol of the muscles in your hip, thigh and abs area
