Hip, Groin and Pelvic Pain

Hip, groin and pelvic pain can affect all ages. It can affect simple tasks such as getting dressed, sleeping, getting in/out of the bed or car, walking, climbing stairs and sleeping, as well as sporting activities.

Hip pain tends to refer to the groin, front of the thigh and even to the knee, but hip pain can also come from the lower back. Pelvic pain can be felt anywhere from the pelvis down into the legs whereas groin pain tends to be more central, lower abdominal or inner thigh.

Children and teenagers can complain of knee pain, but the pain actually originates from their hip. Any child who complains of hip or knee pain should have their hip joint thoroughly examined.

We can help with:

  • hip or knee pain in children
  • snapping or clicking hips
  • trochanteric bursitis
  • referred pain from the lumbar spine
  • sportsman's groin pain
  • sacro-iliac joint pain (SIJ) - ante/post natal
  • hip impingement (FAI)
  • hip osteoarthritis
  • post-operative rehabilitation - hip arthroscopy, resurfacing or replacement

Whatever is causing your hip, pelvis or groin pain, our musculoskeletal physiotherapists at Spire Edinburgh can help your recovery.

Our specialist physiotherapists are happy to receive self-referrals and GP referrals. They work closely with the Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons and Physicians at Spire Edinburgh Hospitals, and onward referral can be arranged if required.
