Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by a number of conditions, including:
- Broken hip bones
- Strained muscle or tendon: Can be caused by overuse or repeated activities.
- Trochanteric Bursitis: When the bursa (fluid-filled sac) at the greater trochanter is inflamed. Read more here.
- Gluteal Tendinopathy: This happens when the tendons which secure your gluteal muscles to the bone degenerate. Find out more here.
Hip Pain Physio Exercises
Before you start any exercise program or treatment plan, it’s vital to see a health professional and obtain a proper diagnosis.
If a patient has been diagnosed with Gluteal Tendinopathy, we commonly include the following exercises in their treatment plan:
- Step Ups
- Single Leg Lifts
- Single Leg Squats
We run through how to do each of those exercises in our blog here.
When treating someone who has been diagnosed with Trochanteric Bursitis, their treatment might include:
- Gluteal Stretch
- Iliotibial band stretch – Standing
- Iliotibial band stretch – Side-leaning
