My hips hurt

Hip Pain Treatment London - When your hips hurt, it’s a real nuisance because it’s hard to rest them

We have to keep on trying to walk, and change direction, and put our socks and shoes on. When your hips are sore, these things can be a real trial. Hips are especially complex because they have to be so mobile (as a ball-and-socket joint, they move in multiple different directions) but also so controlled (to avoid tearing the delicate cartilage inside the joint). Physiotherapy for hip pain starts with determining the cause of the pain. A successful hip pain treatment plan requires this.

Finding the Causes of Hip Pain

My job is to work out whether the problem is coming from your hip joint itself, or whether it’s trying to compensate for a problem somewhere else in your body (common issues that the hip tries to compensate for are stiff feet or a twisted ribcage).

Each hip problem has its own specific cause, and therefore the best way to treat each hip may be completely different.

When I treat you, we’ll start off by discussing when your hip hurts: is it all the time, or just when you try to walk or put your socks on, or when you lie on that side?. I then look at your posture and your movement patterns throughout your whole body, especially with regard to the activity or posture that hurts you most, in order to work out where your problem is originating from.

Hip Pain Treatment

Once we work out what’s going on, we can put together a physiotherapy for hip pain treatment plan. The plan will be completely individual to you: based on whether your hip is the cause of your problem or whether it’s compensating for a problem elsewhere in your body, on your own goals and priorities, your diary, and how much time you’re able to devote to your recovery.

Clinic reopening 5 Oct!

(online treatment still available)

I’ve been keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation and I’m delighted to announce that I will be reopening my Liverpool Street physiotherapy clinic on 5 October, with everything wipe-clean and COVID-safe!

"Virtual first" continues...

However, the current government advice is that I have to see patients online before I can see you in clinic, and that I should only see you face to face (or mask to mask!) if we both agree that the benefits of hands-on treatment outweigh the risks of coronavirus transmission.  If this is not the case, then I do plan to continue to offer online treatment for the foreseeable future.

But if you want to be one of the first people to see me in clinic on my return, call my team on 0207 175 0150 and book an online session before 25 Sept.
