Hip Treatment - Birmingham, West Midlands


Known as ‘wear and tear’ of the joint, osteoarthritis can be caused by repetitive strain on the joints from everyday activities. Symptoms may include; stiffness, pain, reduced range of movement and swelling often seen by doctos in the first instance.

A Physiotherapist at City Physio Clinics will assess your affected joints for pain, range of movement, muscle strength and stability and devise a specific treatment plan to help you manage your pain. Typical treatments may include:

  • Heat
  • Acupuncture
  • Active range of movement exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Advice on general exercise to maintain function

Ilio-Tibial Band (ITB) Tendonitis

This is the most common form of tendonitis that occurs in the hip. It is a common running injury and left untreated can prevent you from continuing with training and running. The ITB is a thick band of tissue that runs from the hip down the outside of your leg to your knee, this fibrous band can become irritated.

Physiotherapy aims to help relieve this irritation with advice on management, manual therapy, home exercise programme and advice on rest and return to exercise.

At City Physio Clinics, we have trained Physiotherapists that are also runners themselves. If you wish to be treated by a professional that has running experience please mention this when booking your appointment.

Referred pain

Pain that is felt in the hip, may well be referred up from the knee or perhaps more commonly down from the spine.

Physiotherapists at City Physio Clinics will assess your hip, spinal joints and peripheral joints such as the knee and ankle to determine the true source of your pain. A treatment plan will then be devised.

Snapping Hip Syndrome

Snapping Hip Syndrome refers to three different hip conditions. A ‘snap’ could be heard or felt due to:

  • The Ilio-tibial Band (ITB) snapping over the thigh bone
  • The Hip flexor muscle snapping over the front of the hip joint
  • Tears of the cartilage or labrum in the joint can cause this snapping sensation.

Our physiotherapists will assess your hip thoroughly to find the cause of your hip pain.
