How We Help

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

Watch this video animation to help you understand the causes of hip osteoarthritis, where the cartilage covering the hip (head of femur + acetabulum (cup shape part of joint in pelvic bone) starts to become worn and inflamed. This process usually takes many years, but causes progressive pain and in time immobility of the joint due to bony “spurs” growing at sides of the joint. In the early stages osteopathic treatment can help to improve mobility and reduce inflammation. The first sign of this problem proper is the leg cannot rotate outwards when relaxed. Keeping as active as possible is important, including incorporating yoga into your life.

Hip Pain

There are a number or reasons for hip pain some of which can be helped by visiting an osteopath.

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. Osteopaths can’t cure the arthritis and it depends on the severity of the wear and tear but treatment and advice from an osteopath can often help ease the symptoms. Osteopaths can look at the patient as a whole, 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 osteopath may refer to your GP or a specialist for any additional investigations or treatment.
