Hip Problems Osteopathic Treatment

If you are suffering from pain or discomfort in your hip, you should consider visiting the Penarth Osteopathic Practice

Mechanical pain around the hip and groin can come from many areas such as the hip itself, the lumbar spine or the sacro-iliac joints.

This is because it links the mobile lower extremities to the fixed pelvis and lumbar spine.

Imbalances in the muscles of the pelvic / hip can then lead to hip pain, especially in those that are active or do a lot of exercise.

The osteopathic treatment of the lumbar spine and sacro-iliac joints can also help reduce the symptoms in the hip.

Arthritis in the hip is relatively common as people get older but it does not mean that there is nothing that can be done about it. 

This is because the ligamentous and muscular pain that it causes can respond well to osteopathic treatment. 

And through the prescription of some simple exercises treatment may help delay the progression of the symptoms.
