Lateral Hip Pain.Lateral hip pain can be very confusing as it can be associated with hip movement, leg movement or back movement. Clients are often unsure where their hip pain is coming from.
Lateral hip pain is a common complaint in my physiotherapy clinic.
Lateral hip pain, in my experience, has three main sources:
Hip Joint dysfunction; lower back disorder; Iliotibial band (which runs over the hip) disorder.
Now, let's look at each one of these in turn:
The successful management of lateral hip pain relies on an accurate diagnosis followed by appropriate treatments and exercises. You will need help from a chartered physiotherapist to ensure the correct diagnosis and treatment. Failure to find this may lead to re-occurrence and a more serious presentation in the future. The cause of your lateral hip pain must be eliminated to reduce the chance of re-occurrence.
