Hip Pain

It’s pretty hip to get treatment for your hip pain.

Put Your Hips Into It.

Hip pain can arise for a number of different reasons, and whichever one it is for you, we aim to sort it out ASAP! Hip pain can affect your daily life since the hips are connected to the groin and legs and may cause you to limp and have difficulty moving around. You may even find that pain in your groin or thigh may be the result of a hip injury or condition. As the hips are so integral to our everyday movement, it’s important to address any pain in this area as soon as you can.

Hip Conditions.

Labral Issues Toowoomba

Labral Issues

Tearing your hip labrum, the soft tissue that covers the hip socket, can cause pain and a reduced range of motion. Labral issues are typically due to overuse, injury, or structural issues.
Osteoarthritis Toowoomba


Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. This can affect the hands, neck, lower back, and knees, as well as the hips, and happens when the cartilage in a joint starts to break down.
Tendinopathy Toowoomba


Gluteal (hip and buttock) tendinopathy is a type of tendon disorder that causes the tendon tissue to break down. This commonly causes hip pain, especially in older women.
Hip Strain Toowoomba

Hip Strain

When one of the muscles that supports the hip joint is torn or stretched beyond its limit, this can result in a hip strain. This causes the surrounding area to become inflamed and painful.
Bursitis Toowoomba


Bursitis is when the bursa, a slippery sack of fluid between a bone and soft tissue, becomes inflamed. This is a common form of chronic hip pain and often causes pain on the outside of the hip that worsens with movement.

Pilates is a great way to exercise that helps your body in so many ways! Our 45-minute classes are limited to four people each, and we also offer one-on-one Pilates and reformer Pilates. And if you thought it was just a fitness fad, think again! Clinical Pilates is an incredible form of treatment for people of all ages and abilities, including those with labral issues or a condition that affects the hips.

Sure, massage therapy can be relaxing, but it offers even more benefits than that! Massage therapy has the ability to alleviate pain and help you to move more freely, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest. There are several treatments within massage therapy, and while they all differ in practice, they all aim to provide the same benefits. Massage therapy can be a great choice for people experiencing pain who are looking to feel like their best, relaxed selves.
Another supporting treatment for hip pain is hydrotherapy. It is an excellent, gentle, and low-impact form of movement. Our hydrotherapy classes focus on tailored exercise plans that are designed by your practitioner to support your goals. It’s also a fun, social, and relaxing form of therapy. Hydrotherapy is ideal for patients who are launching their health journey.

Hips Don’t Lie.

Our hips support our body weight and allow us to run, jump, and generally move our upper legs. While the hip joint can usually withstand a fair amount of wear and tear, it has its limits! Whether due to injury, a condition, or the general passage of time, hip pain doesn’t need to be the end of your jump rope days.

At Optimise Health, we aim to make health personal, so we centre our approach around your goals. Whether that is to jump rope competitively or to move about the house as freely as possible, we take your specific circumstances and work collaboratively as a team with your goals in mind.
