Hip Pain

Hip Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause. Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint. Hip pain can sometimes be caused by diseases and conditions in other areas of your body, such as your lower back. This type of pain is called referred pain.

How We Can Help

At Northern Myotherapy a large majority of our patients hip pain can be directly related back to an anterior pelvic tilt. The hip is a ball and socket joint and either tight or weak muscles around the pelvis can change how the ball (head of femur) and socket (os Coxa) relate to one another causing pain and weakness.

All our therapists at Northern Myotherapy are trained to determine the cause of you hip pain and put in place a treatment program designed to decrease pain and correct any muscle imbalances that lead to dysfunction
