Gluteal Tendinopathy Treatment

Gluteal tendinopathy, often resulting from overuse or injury, can lead to pain and discomfort around the hip area. Ottawa Physical Rehab Clinic’s treatment focuses on relieving pain through specific strengthening and stretching exercises, alongside manual therapy techniques to improve tendon health and function.

Hip Impingement Treatment (Femoroacetabular Impingement)

Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a condition where the hip bones are abnormally shaped, causing pain and stiffness. Our approach includes targeted exercises to improve hip joint mobility and strength, combined with education on activity modifications to prevent further impingement.

Ischial Bursitis Treatment (Weaver’s Bottom)

Ischial bursitis, or Weaver’s Bottom, involves inflammation of the bursa beneath the ischial tuberosity. Ottawa Physical Rehab Clinic offers treatments such as cushioning strategies, physiotherapy exercises, and modalities to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain, enhancing your sitting comfort.

A hip flexor strain occurs when one of the hip flexor muscles is stretched or torn. At Ottawa Physical Rehab Clinic, treatment involves rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), followed by a tailored exercise program to strengthen the hip flexors and improve flexibility.

Snapping hip syndrome, or coxa saltans, is characterized by a snapping sensation when the hip is moved. Our treatment options include activity modification, strengthening and stretching exercises, and manual therapy to address the underlying cause of the snapping and reduce symptoms.

Hip Pain Treatment Ottawa FAQs

What Lifestyle Changes Can I Make to Help Manage My Hip Pain?

Incorporating low-impact exercises such as swimming, cycling, or walking can significantly benefit individuals suffering from hip pain by improving joint mobility and reducing stiffness. Additionally, maintaining a healthy weight can alleviate pressure on the hips. Ensuring ergonomic adjustments at work and home, particularly if you spend long periods sitting or standing, can also help manage symptoms. It’s crucial to balance activity with rest periods to prevent overexertion of the hip joint.

How Long Does It Typically Take to See Improvements from Hip Pain Treatment?

The duration for noticeable improvements varies depending on the specific hip condition, the severity of symptoms, and individual response to treatment. Most individuals begin to experience relief within a few weeks of consistent treatment. However, full recovery from certain conditions, such as osteoarthritis or labral tears, may take several months. It’s important to follow your physiotherapist’s guidance and adhere to the personalized treatment plan for the best outcomes.

Can Hip Pain Be a Sign of a More Serious Condition?

While hip pain is often due to overuse, injury, or age-related wear and tear, it can occasionally signal more serious conditions such as osteoporosis, hip fractures, or infections. If hip pain is accompanied by severe swelling, redness, warmth to the touch, or an inability to bear weight, it’s important to seek immediate medical attention. These symptoms may indicate a need for more advanced diagnostic testing and treatment.

What Can I Do to Prevent Hip Pain from Returning?

Preventing hip pain involves adopting a healthy lifestyle that includes regular, moderate exercise to keep the hip muscles strong and flexible. Paying attention to posture, using proper techniques during activities, and avoiding repetitive motions that strain the hip can also prevent pain. Additionally, incorporating hip-strengthening and flexibility exercises into your routine, as advised by your physiotherapist, can help maintain hip health and prevent future injuries.
