Osteopathy Treats Hip Pain. The hip joint is vital to the movement and essential for weight bearing capabilities because it acts as the connection between the legs and torso. As a integral component of the pelvis, the hip joint is strong and stable. However hip pain can be brought on by certain conditions. These include the following:
- arthritis, which is caused by excessive weight through the hip joint
- Trochanteric bursitis, when there is inflammation of the bursa over the outside of the hip joint brought on by increased activity;
- Snapping Hip Syndrome, caused when muscles or ligaments are imbalanced and
- Hip fractures.
An osteopath can diagnose and help treat the symptoms as well as advise on further testing and an exercise and wellness routine based on a patient’s lifestyle and age.
