Hip & Knee:
The hip joint and its integration with your pelvis, and lumbar spine (lower back) make it a complex region to correctlyanalyze and assess any dysfunction. Your hip function can also be affected by lower limb biomechanics involving your knee, foot and ankle plus your thigh and calf muscles.
A hip injury is one of the most serious injuries a person can suffer through and one that can lead to long-term health problems if not addressed correctly or inevitably prevented. Your Physiotherapist will work with you to regain the stability needed in the hip for balance and walking. Your Physiotherapist will spend the time with you to fully assess the origin of your hip pain and investigate whether it is a hip joint, muscular, nerve or biomechanics issue. Only after a thorough hip assessment, can your hip pain be effectively rehabilitated to relieve your current hip pain and joint dysfunction, which will ultimately prevent the return of your hip pain in the future.

Generally speaking, knee pain should not be regarded as an enemy, but as an important warning signal. The pain sends a signal that something is not quite in order in the knee. And this often allows people to get help in time to correct the problem.
Causes of Mechanical Knee Pain Include:
Patello-femoral syndrome, patellar fracture, bursitis, Ilio-tibial band friction syndrome, patellar or quadriceps tendinopathy, ligament injuries/sprains, Meniscal injuries/tears, Osteoarthritis, Osgood-Schlatter’s disease, Loose Bodies, etc…
