Hip Pain

Home > Hip Pain

The ball-and-socket joints are responsible for different types of movement in the body.  The hip is one of the strongest ball-and-socket joints in the body. A covering of muscles hold the hip joint together and they are attached to the bones by tendons. The hip joint works in synchronicity with the pelvis, SIJ, and lumbar spine. The complex mechanism, if disrupted can lead to serious problems for the whole body.  

Hip pain is a common injury seen in people of all age groups alike. Simple self-healing treatments can help, but if the pain is extreme, then only medical experts can help. A close examination of the lower limb, lumbar spine, pelvis, SIJ, biomechanics of the foot, and core and muscle strength should be done in order to effectively zero in on the cause of the condition.  


What Are the Common Causes of Hip Pain?  
  • Adductor Tendinopathy 
  • Core Stability Deficiency 
  • DOMS – Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness 
  • Gluteal Tendinopathy 
  • Groin Strain 
  • Hip Arthritis (Osteoarthritis) 
  • Hip Labral Tear 
  • Muscle Strain (Muscle Pain)

  • Piriformis Syndrome 
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis 
  • Sacroiliac Joint Pain

If the pain doesn’t subside in two weeks, then it is unwise to leave it untreated. Delay in treatment can lead to serious repercussions in the future.  

A thorough assessment will be done at Mount Isa Phsyio to find the exact cause and suitable treatment for a person affected by this condition. Our experts are committed to providing the best solution for all sorts of problems.
