Hip pain is a very common musculoskeletal complaint, especially in people who are involved in kicking sports such as football (soccer) or Rugby. Hip pain can also affect people who spend a lot of time standing or people who may be suffering with pain from osteoarthritis. All of our physios are experienced in treating common hip pain conditions. We also work with Brisbane’s top hip and knee specialists to provide rehabilitation following hip surgeries such as hip replacements and hip fracture fixations.
Our physios will thoroughly assess your hip to provide you with a diagnosis of your condition. Treatment generally involves managing pain by reducing irritation of the affected muscles, tendons and joints while restoring strength in the area through a strengthening program.
