HIP
PAIN

The human hip joint is a complex ball and socket joint, crucial for healthy everyday activities such as standing and walking. With hip pain, it can cause strong discomfort, stopping you from even enjoying the simplest activities. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms, so that appropriate treatment can help to tackle the problem. This is where our physiotherapists come in, to help you, so that you can get back to enjoying your everyday activities.

 

Hip pain can result from degeneration, trauma, obesity, or high-impact sports. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused as well. Many of these conditions can lead to hip pain.

Some of the symptoms includes: 

  • Unable to walk comfortably on the affected side

  • Injury that causes deformity around the joint

  • Hip pain occurs at night or when turning in bed

  • Decrease hip range movements due to pain/stiffness

  • Instability of the hip

  • Swelling of the hip or thigh area

  • Signs of infection, including fever, redness, warmth

  • Disc Injury
    A disc works almost like a shock absorber, but over time they can become worn or damaged. Symptoms of a disc-related injury might include a loss of mobility in the neck, numbness into your shoulder or arm, and weakness in your neck.
  • Stiff Neck
    Difficulty moving the neck sideway without turning the entire body. It may also be accompanied by a headache, neck pain and shoulder pain or arm pain. In most cases, pain and stiffness go away naturally within a week.
  • Whiplash
    Whiplash injury occurs when there is a sudden jolt to the head and neck in any accident that may cause a forceful back-and-forth motion. Motor vehicle accident is the most common cause behind the whiplash injury, but can also happen in sports or other trauma.
