Hip Pain: How It Feels
The Mechanics Of Hip Pain
X-rays are most beneficial if you have had a fall
OA is the most common cause of hip pain in the UK
Many people with OA findings on X-ray are not in any pain. Your local physio is the best placed person to help you decide how best to proceed with your hip pain.
Around 70,000 hip replacements take place in the UK every year.
The current waiting list for a hip replacement is 3-5 years and cost £12,000
Physio can help avoid hip replacements and also improve the outcome with a pre-operative plan and post operative rehabilitation.

How We Solve The Problem
It doesn’t have to be like this.
My parents had arthritic hips, will I need a hip replacement?

Will physio be able to help diagnose me accurately without a scan?
The correlation between findings on a scan and your presentation is not always as clear as you would think. All the research shows that a complete assessment is the first step in your rehabilitation and then, if required, or appropriate we will help facilitate any additional investigations required. We are confident we can help you avoid this additional stress and potential cost.
