• Stiffness in the hip joint after sitting for long periods
• Pain walking running or changing direction
• Pain going up or down stairs
OVERVIEW/CAUSE OF PROBLEM
Hip and groin pain is very common in our society today due to the sedentary nature of our working lives. The main cause of hip pain is not actually the hip itself but more the way we are using our hip on a day to day basis.
Signs of Hip Pain: Deep ache in front, side or back of hip, referred pain down but not past your knee and pain twisting and turning.
Signs of Groin Pain: you may notice sharp pains on the inside of the groin when twisting and turning, such as when getting out of a car or changing direction whilst running.
While your symptoms may be coming from a structure in your hip or groin the true cause of your pain will be coming from the way you move which can be influenced by tight/ weak muscles from sitting.
The hip and groin are a very complex areas of the body with many structures that can be causing pain. This means a very through examination is required to:
Find out what structure is causing your pain.
Establish what muscles are not working correctly to cause that structure to become over loaded.
Programming the correct combination of exercises to strengthen that hip and allow you to move efficiently in many different directions without re injuring that hip.

Hazel was brilliant. First time going to the physio and she helped so much, went through everything in detail and follow up was great. Would highly recommend!
They were great. I saw Conor and he took the time to listen to me and explain the different aspects of my injury, making sure I knew how to recover and prevent it from occurring again. He was also happy to give advice on other parts of my training routine for further injury prevention, and though I hopefully won’t be injured, would go back again. I also really liked the novel payment program that allows you to book a series of sessions up front.
Diarmuid was very quick in diagnosing the root cause of my injury and his advice and exercises have ensured I’ve managed my injury successfully while maintaining a high level of performance
Really easy booking service with great availability of appointments all day – thank you. Excellent patient care with impressive attention to detail and follow up care, making me feel like I was their number 1 priority. Thank you Peter for getting me back playing for my tournament ahead of schedule – really appreciate it!
