Hip impingement occurs for many different reasons. Generally it is characterised by pain in the front
of the hip and catching in the hip joint. When you go in to a squat postion or walk or run you will get
pain in the front of the hip.
Here are some of the common causes:
Bony growths either on the Femur or the pelvis.
Tight hip flexors
Osteoarthritis of the hip
Tight adductor muscles
Muscle therapy can help to release the muscles of the hip and get rid of the pain. Once the pressure on these muscles is released the pinching in the hip joint usually goes away.
Techniques that can help back pain include: Sports & Remedial Massage, Active release techniques (ART), Myofascial Release, Fascial Manipulation, Dry Needling, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Functional Massage.
