If you are experiencing hip pain, our physiotherapist can help you manage and reduce your discomfort through a variety of treatments. They will first conduct a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your hip pain, whether it is due to an injury, muscle strain, arthritis, or another condition. Once the source of the pain is identified, the physiotherapist will develop a personalised treatment plan that may include exercises to strengthen the muscles supporting the hip joint, manual therapy to improve flexibility and range of motion, and education on proper body mechanics to prevent further injury. Through these interventions, physiotherapy aims to improve your hip function, reduce pain, and enhance your overall quality of life. It is important to work closely with your physiotherapist to understand and follow their recommendations to achieve the best outcomes for your hip pain.

Physical therapy exercises for bursitis of the hip can be an effective way to reduce pain and improve mobility. Bursitis occurs when the bursa, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, become inflamed. This can cause pain and discomfort in the hip joint area. Physical therapy exercises can help to strengthen the muscles around the hip joint and improve flexibility, which can in turn help to reduce the strain on the bursa. These exercises may include gentle stretching, strength training, and low-impact aerobic exercises. It is important to work with a physical therapist to develop a personalised exercise plan that takes into account the specific needs and limitations of the individual.
