The most common hip problems are osteoarthritis and other conditions like trochanteric bursitis (inflammation of the bursa at the outside of the hip) and gluteal tendinopathy (damage to the tendon).
These conditions can hurt your hip when walking (especially longer distances), going upstairs, at night in bed, getting up from a chair or getting out of a car. The pain can be at the back, side or front of your hip.
Physiotherapy Treatment involve changes to activity and behaviour, manual therapy (joint mobilisation and massage), tips on daily activity, e.g. seating, pillows to support your hip at night, and a carefully prescribed exercise programme to strengthen and control your hip movement.
