Knee and Hip Pain Treatment
Do your knees or hips hurt? Most people will at some point have knee or hip pain because these large joints have a demanding task, they must bear the full weight of your body while at the same time allowing for a wide range of motion.
In the knee, pain is often felt around the side of the joint which might be known as ‘runner’s knee’ or ‘ITB syndrome’, or around the knee cap and front of the knee. A catching pain inside the knee may be indicative of a more serious cartilage pathology.
In contrast, hip joint pain symptoms may be felt in a much more widespread area possibly causing discomfort in the groin, buttock, outer thigh or knee. Hip pain can also be referred from the lower back, sacroiliac joint or abdomen making correct diagnosis of the cause of your hip pain essential for effective treatment.
Evidence suggests that the first-line management of knee and hip pains should include exercise in the form of a tailored strengthening program which our physiotherapists can provide.
