Hip and Pelvis Pain

Enjoying Nature

Hip and groin pain can be frustrating and limiting to your lifestyle. It might have started after a big hike, giving birth to children, starting a new exercise regimen or can often feel like it's come from nowhere. Whether it's been happening for a week or a year, the first thing you need to try and do is work out where it's coming from. Common things we hear are:

"I can't lie on my hip."

"I have groin pain when running."

"My hips ache in the morning."

"I get pain in my pelvis at night."

As the hip and pelvis are quite complicated, there's a few different things that can be causing your problem which can include:

  • Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) strain

  • Greater trochanteric bursitis (read this blog)

  • Gluteus medius tendinopathy (read this blog)

  • Labral Tear

  • Adductor (groin) Tendinopathy 

  • Osteoarthritis of the hip

  • Pelvic girdle pain

  • Piriformis syndrome

  • Pelvic floor dysfunction

The management for each condition is going to be different and is individualised because no two people are the same. What you can expect from your physio is:

  • A thorough assessment of your hip and whole body to understand what's causing your pain and why

  • Hands on treatment to reduce your pain and help you sleep

  • Explain to you strategies you can do to fix your issue for the long term

  • Prescribe you a home exercise program for long term resolution of your problem.
