Pre-natal and post-natal exercises



Hip is the largest joint in our body and is a major weight bearing joint. Pain in the hip can arise from structures in and around the hip joint. Hip and groin pain can also be referred to the thigh. See a doctor if it’s been persistent for a long time and If physiotherapy is started early then these are easily and effectively treated.


⦁ Pain is usually experienced in the groin and thigh regions
⦁ Radiation of pain along the thigh
⦁ Swelling and Stiffness around the joint
⦁ Progressive pain with prolonged or in acute stages even short weight bearing
⦁ Difficulty in rising up from the chair, climbing the stairs, squatting
⦁ Limping gait
⦁ Impaired balance and lack of postural control
⦁ Pain when lying on the hip


Arthritis of hip: The most common wear and tear condition is the Osteoarthritis of the hip. Rheumatoid Arthritis or Hip Necrosis may also cause arthritic changes.
Ankylosing Spondylitis:  a genetic condition leading to inflammatory arthritis of the hip.
Muscle Strains: Injury or inflammation of hip or groin muscles
Tendinitis: Inflammation of tendons surrounding the joint.
Referred Pain: from herniated discs and Sciatica
Snapping Hip Syndrome: from Ilio tibial band(ITB) , deep hip flexor muscles, or labrum tears
Overuse Syndrome: Overuse or trauma results in various conditions like tendonitis, muscle pull and bursitis, commonly in runners.
Fracture: Fracture of the femur or acetabulum due to direct injury or osteoporosis
Bursitis: Inflammation of bursa (sac of fluid) on the outer side of the hip
Hip Surgery: Post-op Muscle weakness or pain can persist without appropriate rehabilitation.


3D- Gait lab analysis to identify the weak muscles to be addressed
Laser Therapy: Low level lasers cause vaso-dilatation, bringing in more oxygen to the tissue.
Ultrasound Therapy: Increases the blood supply thereby promoting tissue repair
Interferential Therapy: Stimulates the muscle and nerve fibres
Short Wave Diathermy: to relieve pain and to improve bloody supply (vascularization).
Spinal Decompression Therapy: If the pain is referred from lumbar spine
Exercise Therapy: Strengthening program can improve overall range of motion
Postural Training: for the best positions for weight bearing to reduce stress on the joints.
Gait Training: To improve weight bearing control and balance
