Hip and Upper Leg

Pain from the hip itself can be caused by injury or arthritis, but many other structures in the area can cause pain. Buttock pain can be referred from nerves, and the hamstring and quad muscles can also be culprits.

Assess

A thorough assessment of your hip or buttock issue involves examining onset and timings of your pain, contributing factors, lifestyle considerations, previous investigations or treatments and more. We don't stop assessing you until we feel we have all of the information that we need to work out what is causing your pain.

Diagnose

Your physiotherapist will be able to tell you what structures are likely to be causing your hip or upper leg issue, and will explain your injury in straightforward terms that you can easily understand. We won't bamboozle you with jargon. You will be encouraged to ask as many questions as you want. We won't stop until your questions do!

Treat

Hip or buttock issues are generally only ever resolved when a number of treatments or interventions are put in place at once. Your treatment will include the exercises you need to do, any modifications you may need to make to your work, lifestyle or fitness program, plus advice on aids or equipment that may help you to recover more quickly.

How Online Physiotherapy Works

Now we know what you’re thinking – how can Physiotherapy be performed online? It is often perceived as a very ‘hands on’ profession.

At Online Physio, we have taken the physiotherapy consultation process completely online. This means that you can get your injury personally assessed and diagnosed via any combination of webforms, video consultations and email. Your Physiotherapist will then formulate a rehabilitation plan specific to your needs, and convey it to your computer via written report, online video, and to your smartphone via our PhysiApp.

Physiotherapy as a whole has moved away from a reliance on complex machines and manual techniques, and more towards structured rehabilitation plans that the patient carries out themselves under guidance. This can be converted surprisingly well to an online format, and there is extensive research evidence to support this.

And rest assured, if we feel that you do need to see a Physiotherapist or other health professional 'face to face', we will certainly let you know.

If you have any questions, or wish to know if your injury is suitable for a Online Physio consultation, contact us to find out and have all of your questions answered.
