The hip is a deep-seated ball-and-socket joint that is primarily designed for stability. Its function is to transfer load from the pelvis to the lower limbs and plays a large role in propelling the body forwards, sideways and backwards with large amounts of force.


The hip joint can be injured in many ways. In adults, degenerative changes can lead to osteoarthritis, whilst deformities of the neck of the femur (thigh bone) or socket can lead to impingement or pinching between the two bony parts of the joint.


The labrum of the hip joint can also be injured. This forms a seal around the socket of the joint and increases the depth of the joint to improve stability. Injury to the labrum can either be as a result of an acute injury such as kicking and twisting, or as a result of wear and tear.


Another common complaint around the hip is pain at the outer aspect of the joint. In the past, this has been referred to as greater trochanteric bursitis. This is where a small fluid filled sack becomes inflamed between a tendon and a bone, and therefore creates pain.


Other common hip conditions include muscle strains and referred problems from the lower back.


At Physiolistic, we have several highly skilled physiotherapists with a special interest in hip pain and joint injury.


One of the differences that you’ll notice with Physiolistic treatment is the thorough analysis of why you actually have your hip pain, rather than only treating your symptomatic pain. We strongly believe that if you don’t correct why you are vulnerable to hip injury then it is only a matter of time before your hip pain returns.


Together with a thorough hip assessment, your hip treatment can progress quickly to get you pain-free and perform your normal sport or daily activities in the shortest time possible. The key to a quick recovery is an early, accurate diagnosis.
