Hip

The hip joint is the largest joint of the human body. It is complicated in order to allow a wide range of motion while still supporting the weight of the body and providing stability.�Your hip function can also be affected by lower limb biomechanics involving your knee, foot and ankle plus your thigh and calf muscles.�It's integration with the pelvis, Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and lumbar spine (lower back) make it a complex region to correctly analyse and assess any dysfunction.

Common injuries of the hip include:

  • Dislocation
  • Bone Fracture
  • Groin strain
  • Hamstring strain
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis (most common)
  • Other forms of inflammatory arthritis e.g. Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Irritable Hip syndrome
