Hip Pain


The hip joint is the largest joint of the human body. It is a ball in socket joint with both ball and socket lined with cartilage. These joints transmit the force of gravity and our muscles from the spine into the legs and allows us to walk, run and if you’re a baby, crawl. As it has such a big role in day-to-day life, it often can be a source of pain impacting up to 40% of people.


Hip pain can refer from the groin or lower back, interestingly often the cause of the pain isn’t from the hip itself. Finding the true cause or source of the hip pain is important for long term recovery and prevention of recurrence.


Hip pain can also cause a range of issues like a limp, morning stiffness and reduced function. These presentations of hip pain can be there to protect you but sometimes, they stick around too long and cause ongoing pain or restriction. So if you have hip pain be sure to get it checked out by our trained Osteopaths to prevent future issues.
