Hip & Groin Injuries

When good hips go bad

Your hip is one of your major joints and it’s strength and mobility is vital for activities such as walking, climbing stairs, running, jumping, squatting and getting up off the ground.

Hip or groin pain is often a warning sign of a muscle problem which is frequently associated with gluteal (buttock) muscle inactivity. Issues around the hip may include:

  • Gluteal tendinopathy
  • Groin Strain
  • Hamstring Strain
  • Hip Joint Impingement
  • Hip Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis

What impacts gluteal muscle function?

Gluteal muscles are the classic ‘use it or lose it’ muscles. If you’re spending lots of time sitting down, your muscles will suffer accordingly.

Natural weight bearing activities are best to encourage automatic and effective gluteal muscle activity to get your hips moving freely and without pain. We can help make this easy for you.
