Scroll down2

Hip pain is a common issue that affects individuals of all ages, hindering mobility and diminishing quality of life. At MOOV Physiotherapy in Ottawa, we specialize in diagnosing and treating hip pain with personalized, advanced treatment plans. Our dedicated team is committed to helping you achieve lasting relief and return to your daily activities without discomfort.

Understanding Hip Pain

Hip pain can stem from various causes, including acute injuries, chronic conditions, and overuse. It can manifest as a sharp, acute pain or a persistent, dull ache, affecting not only the hip but also the groin, thigh, or knee. Understanding the underlying cause of your hip pain is crucial for effective treatment.


Common Causes of Hip Pain:

Arthritis: Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are common culprits, leading to inflammation and degeneration of the hip joint.

Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae, which are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint, causing pain and tenderness.

Tendinitis: Inflammation or irritation of the tendons around the hip due to overuse or strain.

Muscle or Tendon Strain: Overstretching or tearing of muscles or tendons in the hip area, often due to repetitive activities.

Hip Fractures: These are more common in older adults and can cause sudden, severe hip pain.

Labral injuries: An injury to the cartilaginous ring inside the hip socket.

Impact on Mobility and Lifestyle

Hip pain can significantly impact your ability to walk, climb stairs, and perform daily activities, leading to a sedentary lifestyle that can further exacerbate health issues. The psychological impact of chronic pain can also affect your overall well-being, making effective treatment essential.

Hip Pain Relief Ottawa FAQs

  • What Lifestyle Changes Can I Make to Help Relieve My Hip Pain?

    Incorporating low-impact exercises such as swimming or cycling can significantly improve flexibility, strength, and reduce stress on your hips. Additionally, maintaining a healthy weight can alleviate pressure on the hip joint. Ensuring ergonomic work and rest environments can also prevent unnecessary strain. Adopting these lifestyle changes, alongside professional treatment, can enhance your recovery process and prevent future hip pain.

  • How Long Does It Typically Take to See Improvements in Hip Pain?

    The duration for noticeable improvements in hip pain varies depending on the underlying cause, severity of the condition, and individual response to treatment. Most clients begin to experience relief within a few weeks of consistent physiotherapy. However, achieving significant, long-lasting improvement may take several months. Your physiotherapist will provide a more personalized timeline based on your specific situation.

  • Are There Any Specific Exercises I Should Avoid If I Have Hip Pain?

    Initially, avoid high-impact activities and exercises that put excessive strain on your hips, such as running on hard surfaces, jumping, or heavy lifting without proper form. Activities that involve sudden twists or turns can also aggravate hip pain. It's important to consult with a physiotherapist who can recommend safe, hip-friendly exercises tailored to your condition and fitness level.

  • How Can I Prevent Hip Pain from Recurring in the Future?

    Preventing hip pain involves regular engagement in strength and flexibility exercises tailored to your needs, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding activities that overstrain the hip. Proper warm-up and cool-down routines before and after physical activity can also reduce the risk of injury.
