Do you need a Hip & Groin Physiotherapist? These injuries can be very difficult to treat. At MCAP, our Physiotherapists have vast experience treating with these injuries on and off the sporting field. As a result, whether you’re an athlete or not, you’ll be in good hands.

What Hip & Groin conditions do you treat?

  • OP (Osteitis Pubis)
  • Bursitis
  • FAI (Femoro-acetabular Impingement)
  • Hip Labral Tear
  • Pinching or clicking of the hip
  • Gluteal tendinopathy
  • Glute weakness
  • Adductor tendinopathy
  • Adductor strain
  • Hip flexor strain
  • Hip flexor tendinopathy

What tests will the physiotherapist do?

The Physiotherapist will begin by asking many questions about your injury. This can feel like a lot of talking at first, but it is one of the most helpful ways to obtain clues about not only what your injury diagnosis is, but why your injury occurred.

Then, your Physio will test the strength and flexibility of your hip, and will feel for problems with the structures around the hip.

Following this, your Physiotherapist will want to watch how you move. We are fortunate to have our own gym space at our Essendon clinic to do this, and have access to the Max Results Gym at our Brunswick clinic to do so.

If the Physiotherapist suspects there is a need for it, they will provide a referral for further scans.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you have any imaging (X-Rays, MRI’s) or any letters from your Doctor or Sporting Club, please bring them with you. This will allow for an efficient diagnosis, and therefore help us to get you back on track more quickly.
