Hip Pain

Are You Struggling With Hip Pain That Hinders Your Ability to Engage in Activities Like Lifting Weights, Running, Jumping, Squatting, Climbing Stairs, Getting up From a Low Seat, Sleeping, or Performing Your Regular Work or Home Duties?

Do any of the following apply to you?
We aim to Assist You in Discovering Long-Term Solutions to Your Hip Pain.
Hip Conditions We Treat:
Common Causes:
  1. Impaired Mechanics: Joint stiffness or reduced muscle flexibility leading to a limited range of motion. Weakness, muscle imbalances, and impaired posture can contribute to this.

  2. Injury: Sudden impact or excessive load placed on the hip tissue.

  3. Chronic Compensations: Previous injuries or the fear of future injuries can result in avoiding certain muscle groups while overusing other tissues as a compensation mechanism.
WERK Wellness Physiotherapy Approach:
Hip-Specific Treatments:
Key Concepts to Understand:
  1. Tissue Healing: The body has a natural ability to heal itself, but sometimes it can get stuck in the inflammatory phase of tissue repair. In such cases, assistance may be needed to transition to the recovery phase.

  2. Pain and Imaging Correlation: The true source of pain is often poorly correlated with imaging results like X-rays and MRIs. It’s possible to have tissue damage on imaging without experiencing pain or functional limitations. Conversely, pain can be present without visible findings on imaging, often due to nervous tissue sensitivity.

  3. Exercise-Induced Soreness: Soreness following exercise is not necessarily a cause for concern. True strength gains require stressing the system, causing micro-damage. As the tissue recovers, it becomes thicker and stronger. Monitoring soreness can help determine if the tissue is ready for increased load, should maintain the current level, or necessitates reducing training intensity until the tissue is better prepared.

  4. Return to Activities: With proper education, correct mechanics, and progressive tissue loading, returning to previous or desired activities is usually achievable. These factors play a vital role in facilitating a successful return to desired levels of activity.
