Hip assessment

Hips and knees are common areas of pain and injury for all age groups. The integration of the hip joint with the pelvis and lumbar spine requires thorough analysis of the lower limb with all hip pain assessment. Our experienced hip and knee physiotherapists will help you feel less pain, increase mobility, regain flexibility and become more comfortable with your movement.

Poor buttock strength can often cause hip,lateral hip,knee and kneecap pain. Doing the right exercise will help you get results faster. Targeted hip and knee pain physio treatments may help you avoid painful and invasive surgery. Hydrotherapy can be effective when strengthening hip muscles.

Common hip conditions are:

  • Hip bursitis
  • Hip tendinopathy
  • Hip impingement
  • Hip osteoarthritis
  • Hip replacement
  • Hip muscle imbalance

Knee pain

Hip and knee injuries may occur due to altered biomechanics, excessive load or as a result of a traumatic injury. Treatment to ease pain may include joint mobilising, dry needling, taping, hydrotherapy, home/gym exercises and activity modification.

Improving your buttock strength and weight loss will help with knee arthritis symptoms and help avoid knee replacement surgery. Finding the right starting point for exercises for you is our speciality.

Common knee conditions seen are:

  • Knee meniscal injuries
  • Knee ligament or tendon injuries
  • Knee bursitis
  • Knee osteoarthritis

Adolescent knee may experience rapid growth spurts causing muscle imbalances and pain. The kneecap or just below the knee where the patella tendon attaches (Osgood Schlatters) can cause pain. Knee taping, bracing or foot orthotics will allow you to continue with sport and help with strengthening exercises to improve your pain.
