Hip Conditions

Another area Optimus specialises in is hip pain.

 

Diagnosis is key in managing problems with both of these large weight-bearing joints. Pain can be a result of muscular strains, hip bursitis/capsulitis and osteoarthritis.

 

Sometimes people mistake hip pain for a sprain to the pelvic (sacroiliac) joint.

 

We’ll refer for x-rays or scans for more severe/long term or traumatic issues but in the short/medium term we can make you more comfortable by giving you appropriate treatment and exercise/advice to resolve the issues.
