Hip and Sciatica Treatment Hawthorn

The majority of people suffering from ongoing pain deep in their hip are due to the intrinsic muscles, which internally and externally rotate the hip joint.

The pain is often misdiagnosed by doctors and other health care practitioners we have found in many patients. Even in the event of a correct diagnosis, the muscles that are causing the pain are extremely difficult for a therapist to get to and release, as they are underneath the major superficial muscles, which include the gluteal/buttocks. Here at Melbourne Muscular Therapies Camberwell, It takes an intuitive and experienced practitioner to effectively access these areas to treat and fix your condition effectively.

This is the main reason people suffer from long-term hip pain, even after seeing countless specialists and health care practitioners as the underlying hasn’t been treated appropriately.

Causes for Hip and Sciatic pain include:

  • Hip Replacement
  • Hip Flexor Strain
  • Groin Strain
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Referred Pain from the Lower Back
  • Disc bulge
  • Osteitis pubis
  • Muscular weaknesses and tightness
  • Biomechanical imbalances

We release the tension present in all of the intrinsic muscles deep in the hip, notably the piriformis muscle. In most cases pain is instantly removed, along with referred signals down the back of the leg. During treatment it is common for patients to tell us we have triggered pain in their hamstring whilst treating there buttocks. When people have radiating pain it is almost always the causes of structural imbalances and weak compromising muscles causing the body to move and feel the way it should.

What others are saying about
Melbourne Muscular Therapies

“Marcus, thanks for your help and encouragement. But most of all, thanks for your wisdom! Do you remember how we started? Gentle exercises using the whole body. I hadn’t realised how inflexible I’d become. I still do these exercises and, as you suggested, I have incorporated the stretches and lunges into everyday tasks to maintain my range of movement. Driving the car would cause me such pain that I’d be in tears of despair driving to work. All that the doctors could suggest was walking and taking anti-inflammatory drugs but walking when my back was bad only worsened the pain. The tablets worked, but as time passed, I had to take them more and more frequently. I soon realised that this was not a solution. If anyone had said that to be cured of back pain forever I’d have to start lifting weights, I’d have thought they were crazy! However, that’s exactly what you did with me – light weights, then gradually more and more. This has given me stronger leg and back muscles which protect my lower back from the rigours of daily living, like driving, carrying shopping and gardening. I was so relieved to be recommended to you! You looked at me as a whole person and started making changes that would work for my lifestyle; I haven’t had to give up anything to incorporate the exercise plan into my daily life. The exercises make me feel good too. Now I can enjoy life! Again, thanks for being with me through this journey – I struggled a lot in the beginning, thinking that my back would never get better. You helped me see that I could actually eradicate my back pain."
