Pain can come from a tight, strained or overused muscle in the hip or from the joint itself. Pain in the hip can sometimes be the result of an injury, it can be referred from the back or related to the way you move, stand and/or use your hip.
Pain from osteoarthritis or wear and tear in the hip joint is also common. Your practitioner can’t cure the arthritis and it depends on the severity of the wear and tear, but treatment and advice can often help ease the symptoms.
Your practitioner can assess the way the hip moves, strengthen and stretch the muscles, gently massage the hip muscles and stretch the hip joint to reduce tension and improve the mobility of the joint and work on the secondary problems like backache.
X-rays, scans and other tests are sometimes required to make a diagnosis and your practitioner may refer to your GP or a specialist for any additional investigations or treatment.
