Trochanteric Bursitis of the Hip
If you’re experiencing pain over the bump of your hip—known in technical terms as the greater trochanter—you may be suffering from Hip Bursitis. Its origins can be degenerative or traumatic, caused by regular wear and tear or by injury. Either way, rapid physiotherapy intervention is important to prevent changes in the way you walk and complications which could lead to hip deterioration and reduced mobility.
Your treatment will consist of hands-on interventions to restore and promote free range of hip motion, joint protection techniques to improve your function, modalities, such as heat, ice and Ultrasound to promote healing, along with education about joint-protection techniques to alleviate symptoms and prevent flare-ups.
Broken Hip Bone
Hip Fractures are diagnosed following an X-ray, and the treatment begins once the fracture has stabilized. Following a thorough assessment, the Focus Physiotherapy team will consider the type of fracture and repair, the degree of bone loss and integrity, as well as all other relevant physical factors to create a prioritized treatment plan.
With experience in hospital settings, as well as in outpatient clinics—and using carefully selected equipment—our Registered Physiotherapists are healthcare professionals who will guide you to your recovery goals.
Degenerative Joint Disease
Arthritis of the hip is commonly caused by wear and tear throughout your lifetime. It’s a condition that can also be accelerated by trauma that was never fully rehabilitated. When suffering from Hip Arthritis, everyday activities like walking and standing can be painful.
Treating a patient with hip arthritis is a process that involves investigation, time and changes in behaviours. Our Registered Physiotherapists will perform a thorough assessment of the cause, identify any factors that are aggravating your condition and map out a plan of how to improve your overall function.
If not properly treated, hip pain can be debilitating and can ultimately take away your independence. Physiotherapy intervention at the right time, as part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program, will maximize your recovery, keep you healthy longer and enable you to walk pain-free without a cane.
