Hip and Groin Pain
Learn about your hip and groin pain
Hip and groin pain can occur frequently especially in active activities such as sports involving twisting, turning and kicking manoeuvres. The hip and groin anatomy structures are complex due to the numerous muscles, tendons, glands, bursae and other soft tissue areas that may be inflamed or/and involved with the injury.
Hip pain is often one sided, although it may appear on both sides either in stages or occur simultaneously. It may originate in the pelvis, spine or caused by degenerative joint inflammation (arthritis) or injury including the muscles, tendons and/or other soft tissues involved.
Similarly groin pain can appear in the origin or at the junction of the muscle tendon unit or it may radiate down into the groin. Often patients may experience that pain reduces following initial exertion or subside completely only to reoccur again following activity such as training but with increased intensity.
A hip/groin assessment involves a discussion about your medical history and frequent lifestyle activities to help identify the possible causes and risks of developing your pain. With your permission, an assessment will be conducted of gait, posture, leg length discrepancies, muscle strength and flexibility (amongst others) to help establish the cause of your pain. Treatment and rehabilitation will often depend on the findings of the assessment including appropriate support of how you can help yourself to manage your pain (e.g. exercises to meet your needs to reduce the risks of injury reoccurrence).

Three visits to Nick in 3 weeks and to my amazement not only did I make the start line but I ran the 26 miles, non-stop in under 4 hours, without any problems with my calf muscle..
