Hip Pain

Hip pain can be difficult to diagnose because of the complex anatomy around the hip and groin; this can make working out exactly what is causing the pain a challenge. Symptoms can come from injury to the labrum (cartilage around the joint), injury to the joint itself, nerve pain referred from the lower back, femoro-acetabular impingement, inguinal hernia or – as is often the case – the sporting groin, which is injury to several soft tissue structures relating to the muscles and attachments of the abdominal wall and hip muscles.

Without an accurate diagnosis, it’s not possible to design an optimal treatment approach, which is why a thorough assessment is vital. At the assessment we will give you information about what is causing your pain and begin a course of treatment, which is likely to involve manual therapy and a rehabilitation programme.
