• 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.
OVERVIEW OF TREATMENT
Our specialist clinic offer in depth assessment and analysis of your injury.
Detailed history of the injury and previous injury.
Advance assessment of hip structures testing strength, mobility, flexibility and muscle endurance.
Biomechanical assessment of your movements walking running, change of direction and lateral movements.
From this assessment we can design a program to:
Reduced your pain
Strengthen your hip/groin
Improve your walking and running technique
Return you to an active pain free life
Full rehab process of hip and groin pain depending on the activity of the person can take 6- 12 weeks to resume full pain free activity consistently.
I can't recommend this place enough. I had an intermittent back issue that had defeated a few other physios I had consulted over the years but Diarmuid sorted me out in two visits. He was modest and said it was a simple fix but the magic was in the diagnosis. The clinic is well run, sparkling clean and feels very safe
Went in with an issue with my knee, Sarah identified the root cause and provided great treatment and exercises to prevent the issue from happening again. Would recommend
Would really recommend Diarmuid, he was very professional and helpful 👍 👏 👌
I have seen both Conor and Sarah at Resync Physio. They both did a lot to really understand the root of the issues I was having and then worked on strengthening those areas which I didn't realise were weak. They were both very consistent in their approach which I liked and I felt as though I was getting a lot of time in each session. Definitely worth booking an appointment if you have a niggle!
Would really recommend Diarmuid. Suffered knee issues after sports injury and surgery few years ago. He was brilliant, knew straight away what was wrong and the rehab plan was great. Hard work with some laughs along the way.Diarmuid always kept in touch and sent videos of exercises to make sure I done them correctly at home. Back to gym, knee is better than before the injury.
Very good service, great professional advice nice atmosphere, really recommended for everyone
I was in real agony with pain in my back (couldn't even sleep at night). I followed the 3 week program in ReSync with Connor and it was the best help I could have. Great professionals!

Conor did great work on my back! Knowledgeable physio, who was able to quickly identify chronic issues that had built up as a result of office work. Felt much better after a few sessions!
I can’t recommend ReSync physio enough. I came to Diarmuid with a pain in my back I’ve had for five years, along with various other small niggles. He took a full body approach to tackling my issues and over the course of a 6 week programme he showed me the steps to correct my problems and be pain free. I felt Diarmuid and his team were invested in getting me back to normal, not only in our face to face sessions but also checking in on how I was getting on in the days between our sessions. 2 months after finishing the programme my back still feels great and know I can correct any little flare-ups using the techniques taught to me by both Diarmuid and Conor. Thanks you both so much for all your help!
I attended a course of treatment with Diarmuid in recent months and have made good progress. I am continuing with a series of exercises to maintain range of movement.I am happy to recommend ReSync Physiotherapy
I cannot recommend resync physiotherapy clinic enough. I went to Diarmuid with an ankle injury which has bothered me for years and has stopped me running for prolonged periods of time. Diarmuid was the first physio to not only fix the injury but he also kept me training during the process. Diarmuid uses innovative techniques to establish the cause of the injury. He is excellent at helping you understand how you can prevent the injury reoccurring and giving you programs to do so. There is also a lovely vibe in the clinic 😊
Great experience. Attended with knee injury and did a 6 session programme as knew I had poor running technique. Conor worked on my technique and explained in great detail the cause of injury as well as providing an excersise program to correct posture.
I invested in a 6 week program with Diarmuid at Resync Physiotherapy to see if anything could be done with a niggling hip/ lower back issue. I'm delighted with the results. Diarmuid looks for the root cause and designs exercises that focus on building strength and flexibility in weak areas.. The results are sustainable. I definitely notice the improvement every day and in particular when I play golf . I highly recommend.
After an impact knee injury, Diarmuid helped me go from barely being able to walk down stairs to returning to my sport in a few months. He was challenging and motivational, and gave me sports-specific exercises for rock climbing.The team at ReSync were very communicative and kept in contact on WhatsApp to guide me. I found the online booking system quick and easy to rearrange appointments, I wish more companies and services were this modern! Very professional, thanks!
I attended resync physiotherapy for knee and back pain. It is a very welcoming clinic and both Diarmuid and Conor were extremely professional and thorough. I particularly liked the holistic approach they take in placing emphasis on both the emotional and physical side of injury. I would definitely recommend the resync team.
I can't recommend Resync Physiotherapy highly enough. I have an old back injury sustained nearly 20 years ago. This means I am always in pain but it's mostly just uncomfortable with periodic flare ups that make movement extremely painful. I have historically treated this with a trip to the doctor and some anti-inflammatories after a flare up. After 2 bad ones in the space of 2 months I decided to try something different and booked in with Resync. The approach was very different to what I expected with Conor focusing on building strength in my legs rather than my back, and getting me to alter how I walk. While this seemed counter-intuitive to me, the results have been spectacular. I will always have to remain vigilant about my back, my injury can't be 'healed', however I am now pain free 90% of the time and the rest of the time stretching will usually resolve it. I can't overstate how much of a game changer this has been for me, thanks so much Conor.
I was struggling to get back running after having two kids, I worked with Diarmuid to get my core strong again after two C-Sections and to gain the confidence and strength to go back running and remain injury free.
I have attended Stepaside Physiotherapy over the last couple of months in one of their unlimited treatment program's. I had long term hip and knee problems and had tried many other forms of treatments over the years with little or no success.Both Diarmuid and Conor worked tirelessly with me treating me continually until I saw results. I’m now back exercising and sleeping pain free. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.Thankyou!
You should book yourself even if you have no injury!I came in with an on-going shoulder pain, worsening for months with its peak during the lockdown – approaching a chronic condition caused by shoulder bursitis, bicep tendonitis, along with an underlying shoulder weakness.After the initial assessment, I opted for the 6 week unlimited treatment program – which consisted of comprehensive analysis and regular movement assessments, targeted physio treatments to provide immediate improvement in pain, tailored video exercise plan - easy to adapt & follow, along with monitoring and regular adjustments to the plan as my recovery progressed and my ability increased. Alongside the treatment the goal was not only to leave me pain free but also to become more knowledgeable on the pain’s root causes, their correction, as well as future prevention.Injury or no injury, pain or no pain - anyone booking will get great value when choosing the full assessment, a tailored plan to achieve goals as well as to educate and strengthen the body – something we should all aim for.
Top class physio. Got instant relief from an ongoing issue. Easily a 5 star recommendation. 👍.
I was suffering with knee pain for a few weeks while running. Diarmuid diagnosed my problem coming from a weakness in my hips. I completed a 6 week unlimited treatment program with Diarmuid and am now back running stronger and faster than before. Great cost effective program that guarantees to fix your injury. Would recommend.
Very good solved my back problem quickly and with a friendly service
Can't thank Conor enough for fixing my neck pain. From the first appointment there was a huge improvement , he was really informative and really made sure I knew the exercises before I left. Would definitely recommend Stepaside Physio.
Great care and service provided by Conor and the team. I’ll certainly use them again if and when the need arises.
After hurting my calf/hamstring from running, Diarmuid was excellent for giving me the necessary training to recover and his advice and training programme was brilliant to get me back on track on where I need to be.

I told Diarmuid that I chose Stepaside Physio based on the reviews so it would remiss of me not to post one of my own. I attended Diarmuid for rehab post knee arthroscopy for a repair of a lateral meniscus tear. After the initial consultation I signed up to the 3 week programme. Delighted I did as I'm now back running and hiking. Running more efficiently than before too. I found the Blood Flow restriction cuff just great for waking up the muscle. I found Diarmuid to be professional and thorough albeit with a sometimes reluctant client!! He doesnt only focus on the injury but on the whole body mechanics.Im sorry I didnt go to him before surgery as I believe I could have avoided it altogether. I have no hesitation in recommending Diarmuid and Stepaside Physio. Thanks for everything.
Very professional and extremely helpful! Highly recommended
Great experience with the guys in Stepaside Physio. Gave me a full program for my torn hamstring injury and fully back up and running. 👍
Great experience with Diarmuid in Stepaside Physio. I had a long term injury which kept me out of GAA for over 2 years. After a few weeks with Diarmuid and some extensive rehab work, I was back on the pitch. The best aspect of his clinic is that he looks at the full body and how it’s functioning rather than treating each symptom individually to get to the root cause of the injury. Recommend him highly
I have a problem with my hips. Mr Diarmuid Hegarty after some evaluation and quick interview found about my overall goal, has setup a program of various exercises, which were adjusted in increments (level of difficulty and impact on desired muscles). Every single exercise was explained in details including video recordings of proper technique and posture to the exercise, purpose of the exercise and benefit it brings on the parts of the body. I highly recommend the practice.
Would highly recommend Diarmuid in Stepaside Physio. He was able to unlock a lifetime problem I’ve had with my back in 1 session! He definitely knows his stuff and their price plans are very workable and reasonable.
Highly recommend these guys. I had problems with my tension headaches and fullness in my ear. (Suspected eustachian tube dysfunction, by my doctor). Conor was able pin point the muscles in my neck and jaw and give me exercises to loosen everything back up and the tension and fullness went away.
Brilliant Care. They really know what they are doing ! Really ! They fixed my sport crazy 8year old son, gave him a few home exercises and he’s back fighting fit.
Very effective, and professional. Diarmuid at Stepaside Physio has made huge progress with an old shoulder problem, which hadn’t been effectively resolved by other physios. Would recommend.
Exellent service plus results 👍
Went into the physio with sever back pain and when Deirmud was finished I was like a new man
Conor got my shoulder injury sorted in just 4 sessions. He diagnosed and treated it quickly and showed me correct form for exercises to strengthen the area and prevent any future problems. He also checked in with me in between appointments and was very easy to contact.

I thoroughly recommend Stepaside Physiotherapy for any injury treatment. I had a running injury which prevented me from running properly but also impacted me at work. Thanks to the treatment and advice from Stepaside Physiotherapy I was back running again pain free after two months and I am certainly not a young person.The strengthening exercises I was given continue to help me.Most impressive was not only the quality of the treatment but the care and patience shown to me throughout.David Purdom.
I would highly recommend Diarmiud as a physio. Not only has he resolved my back pain which has been on and off for years, he has provided me with a programme to ensure it does not return. He was very accurate and detailed in his initial consultation and for the first time in years I am free of back pain.
I attended Conor as I had been suffering with headaches and migraine for several years. I had previously tried a number of different treatments with no success. I had four sessions with Conor where he worked on my upper back, neck and jaw. I completed my physio sessions two months ago and I haven't had a single headache since. I'm absoluely delighted! I received excellent care at Step aside Physiotherapy.
Diarmuid has sorted out problems with my back and leg that have been bothering me for over 10 years.As a result I am now cycling comfortably doing longer and faster spins.
