Could your Hip Pain be Sacroiliac Joint Pain?

Sacroiliac Joint Pain When is Hip Pain not Hip Pain? Pain in the hip area is one of the most common symptoms presented by clients to chiropractic or physiotherapy clinics. However, all may not be as it seems. Hip pain may not be caused by the hips at all; it may actually be coming from the sacroiliac joints. The hip joints are the ball and socket joints at the side of the hip area; the sacroiliac joints are located at the two dimples low down to either side of the spine. They are L-shaped joints, surrounded by supporting muscle and ligaments, which are the link between the spine and the pelvis. The joints should move just a small amount to allow for walking and sitting.  The sacroiliac joints can become injured or inflamed through trauma or strain, especially through prolonged sitting. Pain is usually felt to one side of the lower back, into the buttocks and sometimes to the groin and front of the thigh. For these reasons, it can be confused with hip or sciatic nerve issues. When you have sacroiliac joint pain, it may be aggravated by standing still, walking, sitting cross-legged and lying on your side. Bending forward, stair climbing, hill climbing and rising from a seated position can also provoke sacroiliac pain.  Depending on the nature and severity of the problem, the chiropractic or physiotherapy approach is usually to restore function and mobility to the joint, reduce inflammation and work with the muscles and ligaments to reduce pain. Exercises will help to rehabilitate the joint and sometimes a special support belt can be of benefit. (These can be purchased from The Iveson Clinic.) Our... read more

Hip Arthroscopy… A Hot Topic

  Since the news of Andy Murray’s forthcoming retirement, and the revelation that he hasn’t made a full and pain-free recovery from his hip surgery, we felt it would be helpful to explain a little about the procedure he underwent – the hip arthroscopy. This topic is of particular interest to Julie Iveson, head physiotherapist and proprietor of The Iveson Clinic, who used to be an international gymnast underwent the same operation on her hips, five and eight years ago. Hip arthroscopy is generally considered for patients below the age of 40 who have damaged their hip joint and possibly the soft tissue around and within it. This damage often occurs in elite athletes whose hips can be affected by repetitive physical exercise over a long period of time.  The hip joint is a ball and socket joint, held tightly together by muscles, ligaments and suction. Hip arthroscopy is commonly performed for a condition called Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), where there may be some catching or pinching of the ball and socket joint due to additional bone which can develop on the ball or the rim of the socket which is termed Cam or Pincer impingement.  Due to its deep-seated nature within the body, the hip is not the easiest joint to perform keyhole surgery on. During the procedure, various portholes are inserted as well as a camera, which enables the surgeon to view the area on a screen and thus enable the reparative surgery to proceed.  This may include removing excess bone spurs (i.e. Cam), repairing torn labrum, removing loose bodies and so on. Hip arthroscopy is not a simple process and takes... read more
