Hip Physiotherapy Exercises

Various hip conditions can benefit from exercising.  Hip arthritis, trochanteric bursitis, IT band irritation, Trendelenburg gain pattern (walking like a penguin), hip strain and overuse injuries are examples of issues with the hip that can benefit from exercising and stretching.

Take a look at some of hip articles and exercises that have been developed by our physiotherapists.


My Doctor Says I Have Arthritis In My Lower Back!

My Doctor Says I Have Arthritis In My Lower Back!

As we age degenerative changes can occur in our lower back.  Terms used to describe the changes include osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, osteophytes, sclerotic changes, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, joint stiffness and pain and finally arthritis.  These can all cause stiffness, soreness, lower back muscle spasms and lumbar radiculopathy (pain into the buttocks, hips and down the legs).  Let's see what we can do to help ourselves improve our function and mobility and decrease our pain.  One can have many of these diagnosis on X-Ray but have very little or no symptoms at all.   This gives us hope when doing these exercises!

Hip Osteoarthritis

Hip Osteoarthritis

Hip OA most commonly presents with pain in the groin area. Usually, pain develops slowly over time. Research has shown both genetics and age are large contributing factors to pain.

Physiotherapy can play a large role in hip OA by reducing pain and increasing function. We aim to improve range of motion, mobility and strength. We also aim to correct any functional changes related to pain or weakness.

Back Pain and Sciatica?  What is it and what can I do?

Back Pain and Sciatica? What is it and what can I do?

Sciatica by definition is irritation of the sciatic nerve.  This can cause pain, weakness, numbness and / or tingling down the back of the leg starting in the buttock region.  The question we like to ask as physiotherapists which will dictate how we treat sciatica is:  What is causing irritation of the sciatic nerve?  We want to treat the cause of the sciatic nerve and not just chase the symptoms caused by sciatica.  Let's try to figure out what is causing the sciatica and then we can focus on how to treat this condition.
