Hip & Groin Pain

Hip and Groin Pain can be a stubborn and although there are many causes the first step in Resolving your Pain is always getting a trusted diagnosis. Thankfully LWF MSK Physiotherapists are well placed to assess and advise you about what kind of issue it is that you have.

But first if you have any of the below complaints we suggest it may be best to you get the advice of a Physician before attending LWF Physiotherapy:

  • If you are struggling to put weight through your leg
  • If you have any altered sensation or weakness in your leg
  • If you develop any testicular pain
  • If you develop any swelling in your hip or groin area – especially if it is hot and red
  • If your groin symptoms are made worse by coughing or sneezing

Here are few common complaints that our expert MSK team can help you begin your pathway to Be Better:

Commonly caused by tendon pain due to doing too much too soon or without enough recovery between intense bouts of activity, but it can be caused by pain where the abdominal and adductor muscles insert at the front of the pelvis too and also sometimes within the aforementioned muscles too. This type of complaint commonly becomes an ongoing issue when you don’t address the cause, so ensure to get your recovery underway consult with your specialist MSK physiotherapist at LWF as soon as possible.

If you pull up running with pain at the front or inside of your hip or groin then you may have caused the muscle to go into a protective spasm or worse still it may have been torn. Early assessment and accelerated rehab is key to a speedy and effective return to what you love.

This can be down to structural injury or just a pre-warning from your nervous system that not all is as well as it was. Osteoarthritis can occur with advancing age but can also occur in the sporting male at earlier ages too so best to get things checked with an LWF expert without letting it become persistent. Our Specialist MSK Physiotherapists will know if you need further investigation from your initial appointment.

Commonly caused by tendon pain at the outside of your hip, more frequent in females but can happen to men too. This will become persistent unless you place it in the right environment to heal, so don’t delay start this today.
