The hip joint is one of the most stable joint in the body, and it is designed such way that it can tolerate huge stress and pressure in walking and running.
When it is working well, you can do almost anything. However, when there is a problem, it is usually poorly treated and often misdiagnosed. A thorough assessment of the entire lumbo- pelvic- hip region needs to be done to correctly manage hip pain. At Croydon Physiotherapy, a postural analysis and gait analysis is always done to determine where the dysfunction is originating.

Common problems to cause hip pain include
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Vascular insufficiency
  • Pelvic dysfunction
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Femoroacetabular impingement
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Pinched nerve
  • Fracture
