Hunter Physio have extensive experience regarding physiotherapy for hip and groin injuries in Newcastle.
Mechanisms of Hip Injury
Injuries to the hip and groin commonly occur whilst participating in recreational activities, sports and in the workplace. The hip and groin may be injured during sports that involve changes of direction, high speed running incidents, motor vehicle accidents, slips or falls , or bending and reaching at work.
Is Your Pain Referred?
The hip and groin can be a difficult area to assess and treat, as there are a lot of structures involved. An accurate and firm diagnosis is extremely important when treating this area, as it is common for low back pain and/or pelvic pain to be referred into the hip and groin region.
