The hip joint has a hard life, it’s subjected to huge forces and is prone to injury and arthritis; we all know someone who has had a hip replacement. In 2015 over 100,000 hip replacement operations were performed in the UK.
Not all hip pain is a result of arthritis though and we see many patients whose pain is a result of functional problems of the hip, as well as the low back and pelvis.
Hip Pain Treatment
By working on the mobility of the affected joints, and the performance of the associated muscles, we can ease discomfort and improve stability and function. Even when the hip has become arthritic, by increasing mobility and improving strength, we can help put off the need for surgery.
It is estimated that a sixth of the UK population suffers from back pain at any one time.
If you suffer from arthritis, or very stiff joints, exercise may be the last things you want do, however
It’s recommended that we take 10,000 steps a day
Sport is about performing at your highest level. Whether it’s tight muscles, weak muscles, recurrent injury, reduced mobility or poor stability that’s holding you back, our chiropractors and sports massage therapist are here to help you.
