Hip & Groin Pain Treatment in Plymouth

Apart from a specific injury or an arthritic hip joint, most pains in the hip or groin are caused by a mechanical problem elsewhere in the body. This will usually be from the lower back or pelvis, but can be from the knee or even the foot.

Recurring groin and hamstring strains are common in sports people (especially footballers), and a twisted or rotated pelvis is often the root problem, which causes a weakness and an overload of the muscles and tendons in the groin.

Pain in this area often makes walking very difficult and people often “seize up” if they have been sitting for too long. If a chronic groin or hip problem is not treated it will usually causes problems with the lower back as the patients start to adapt the way they walk.
