EFFECTIVE hip PAIN MANAGEMENT

As Movement Specialists, we have developed a complete philosophy to target your hip pain. Helping you get on the road to recovery quickly and effectively.

Understanding the issue
In today’s increasingly sedentary and ageing population, hip pain can cause individuals considerable issues. As people continue to live longer, the rate of osteoarthritis, which is a common source of hip pain, is increasing. The rate of total hip replacements is also increasing year on year. In England, the number of hip replacement operations on people aged under 60 has risen 76% in the last decade (Roberts, 2016).

Hip pain can affect people in many ways. It can cause a lack of sleep, change the way you walk and prevent your from living your everyday life. 

Any pain in your hips is best addressed early. Your hip pain should be taken seriously as they are the early warning signs for potential problems down the road. The consequences of not addressing and understanding issues when they arise, can lead to long standing issues that are more complex and harder to settle down. You are in control and can control the progress of your hip with effective treatment and long term management for your issues.

CAUSATIVE FACTORS

There are many causes of hip pain. Hip pain can arise from a change in the bone or soft tissue surrounding the hip. This could be from a specific injury or from an accumulation of factors which have stressed your tissue over time (NHS, 2019). In the UK, the most common cause of hip pain is osteoarthritis. In England it is reported that 1 in 9 adults over 45 years have osteoarthritis of the hip and 1 in 5 adults have osteoarthritis of the knee (Arthritis Research UK, 2019). 

Whether your hip pain has arisen from a specific trauma or over a prolonged period, it is important these symptoms are seen to and taken seriously to avoid further stress and damage. 

Hip pain rarely occurs in isolation, it commonly presents alongside knee pain. Patterns of hip and knee pain are often from complex movement pattern dysfunctions. It is important to understand you should be able to complete any task (picking a pencil off the floor) with a number of different movement patterns, however it is when this choice of movement is lost that repetitive stresses are placed on your soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints). This is when it is likely that problems start to arise.
