Pain in the hip can come from tight or strained muscles around the hip or from the joint itself.
Causes of Hip pain
Pain in the hip can sometimes be the result of an injury, referred from the lumbar spine or osteoarthritis within the hip joint.
Treatment of Hip pain
Osteopathy can’t cure arthritis and depending on the level of wear and tear within the joint it can help with easing some of the symptoms. Osteopathy looks at the person as a whole, how the hip moves and what is causing the pain. Treatment of massage and articulation of the hip and surrounding area can help to reduce tension and pain. Advice and rehabilitative exercises may be provided to help strengthen and stretch the area.
