The hip joint is the largest joint of the human body. It can be affected by a wide range of disorders including arthritis, irritable hip syndrome and many other conditions. Pain around the hip may be due to soft tissue pain syndromes or referred pain from a back problem.
Hip pain can also often be related to your whole lower limb biomechanics and function. Your knee, foot and ankle joints, plus your thigh and calf muscles all contribute to your hip function.
If you have pain in your hip, call us on 07 5534 4071 or book online and our trained physiotherapists can determine the causes and triggers of your hip pain. Through techniques such as hands on therapy, mobilisation, dry needling, and exercise they can help alleviate your pain now and help prevent pain in the future.
The knee joint is a crucial component of the lower limb as it forms the connection of the hip and thigh to the shin and ankle. It is has a vital role in our ability to both weight bear and generate normal movement through the lower limb.
Knee pain is very common and can be caused by a specific injury, such as twisting of the joint while playing sport, or can develop over time due to poor movement patterns, repeated loading, or congenital conditions.
Some of the common knee injuries we treat include:
- ACL Injuries & Reconstructions
- ITB Friction Syndrome (pain on outside of the knee)
- Patella tendon pain
- Knee Osteoarthritis
- Knee Cap Pain
- Osgood-Schlatter disease
Our physiotherapists have extensive experience with assessing and treating knee pain and post-surgery rehabilitation. Call us on 07 5534 4071 or book on-line and we’ll help you get moving again.
If the cause of your pain is not obvious, our physiotherapists can refer you for scans or refer you to an experienced and trusted Orthopaedic Surgeon for further assessment.
FEET & ANKLES
The feet and ankles contain many bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons that make this area particularly vulnerable to acute injuries such as ankle ligament sprain (rolled ankle) or injuries from overuse such as from long distance running or jumping.
Our Physiotherapists commonly assess and treat the following conditions:
- Achilles tendon pain (tendinopathy)
- Tendon Rupture & Repair
- Ankle ligament sprains (rolled ankle)
- Calf muscle tears/strains
- Stress Fractures
- Shin Splints
- Severs Disease
- Plantar Fasciitis
We also have a very experienced Podiatrist, Ben Harcourt, onsite on Wednesday afternoons who we can liaise with or refer you to for further assessment and treatment, if needed.
