hip1Our practice provides physiotherapy care for hip pain sufferers to the local areas of Sandhurst, Yateley and Fleet. The hip joint is a ball and socket joint which allows for mobility during walking and stability during standing or weight bearing. The hip is designed to allow for movement in almost every direction, as well as rotational movement whilst still providing stability and bearing the weight of our bodies. The hip joint isn’t indestructible, despite it’s durability. With age and usage the cartilage can wear down or become damaged and muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. The hip bone itself can be fractured during a fall or other injury. Any of the below conditions can lead to hip pain:
  • Hip arthritis
  • Hip labrum tear
  • Hip Impingement
  • Hamstring injury
  • Thigh muscle strain
  • Hip bursitis
Jonathan worked as a Hip Clinical Specialist in the NHS for many years and has extensive experience dealing with these problems.
