Osteopathy Treats Hip PainOsteopathy Treats Hip Pain. The hip joint is vital to the movement and essential for weight bearing capabilities because it acts as the connection between the legs and torso. As a integral component of the pelvis, the hip joint is strong and stable. However hip pain can be brought on by certain conditions. These include the following:

  • 1) arthritis, which is caused by excessive weight through the hip joint
  • 2) Trochanteric bursitis, when there is inflammation of the bursa over the outside of the hip joint brought on by increased activity;
  • 3) Tendonitis
  • 4) Snapping Hip Syndrome, caused when muscles or ligaments are imbalanced and
  • 5) Hip fractures.

An osteopath can diagnose and help treat the symptoms as well as advise on further testing and an exercise and wellness routine based on a patient’s lifestyle and age.
