The hip joints are large, stable ball and socket joints that are capable of a significant range of movement. They bear the weight of the upper body as it is transferred through the pelvis.
Your pelvis is a ring of bones which meet at the pubic symphesis at the front and at the sacroiliac joints at the back where your tailbone and pelvis meet. Many large strong muscles attach to the pelvis exerting a huge amount of force on it.
Hip pain can occur at any age: Some babies can have congenital hip complaints that might cause on-going issues. Active people and sports enthusiasts may experience symptoms from overuse. The older patient may suffer due to an arthritic condition whereas women may experience pelvic and hip pain during pregnancy or after childbirth.
Whilst issues with the hip joint can refer pain to the buttock, groin or leg, pain felt in your hip may stem from an underlying problem in your pelvis or back.
By understanding the causes of pain and symptoms in your hip, pelvis or lower back, the Osteopathy Centre can give you the tools to take control of your health.
