Hip Pain

Hip Pain

Hip pain can come from a tight, strained or overused muscle in the hip or from the joint itself. Pain in the hip can sometimes be the result of an injury, it can be referred from the back or related to the way you move, stand and/or use your hip.

Pain from osteoarthritis or wear and tear in the hip joint is also common. Your practitioner can’t cure the arthritis and it depends on the severity of the wear and tear, but treatment and advice can often help ease the symptoms.

There is good quality evidence supporting the beneficial effects of manipulation and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommends treatments like Osteopathy and Physiotherapy.

Treatment is different in every individual, and sometimes it might involve treating other areas in the body such as your feet or neck. Your body is a network of inter-connected bones, muscles and nerves.

Practitioners will use a wide range of manual treatments depending on your age, fitness and diagnosis.

Practitioners may also offer advice on your lifestyle, particularly if they feel something you are doing repetitively is part of the reason why you have hip pain. They may offer advice on your posture, diet and exercises.
