Thumb & Wrist Injuries

PhysioRoom can help

The hip joint is a very strong, stable and flexible weight bearing joint. The most common injuries in the hip are hip osteoarthritis, lateral hip pain (gluteal tendinopathy or bursitis), hip (femoroacetabular) impingement and muscular thigh strains (hamstrings or quads). These types of injury are often minor and can be managed using the principles of POLICE under the guidance of a physiotherapist. Occasionally, more severe trauma can occur in the form of fractures or cartilage tears. If you have had a traumatic injury and are unable to weight bear, you must seek an urgent medical assessment. For non-traumatic injuries management involves a combination of strengthening, dynamic balance and progressive loading exercises using the principles of POLICE under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

Thumb & Wrist Injuries Table

This table shows some of the key symptoms of the most common hip injuries. We strongly advise that you see a healthcare professional rather than attempt to self-diagnose.

The information pages about each condition should help to explain the injury you have and signpost how it can be appropriately managed. Remember that wear and tear (degeneration) in your hip is a normal part of ageing. Often people with large amounts of wear and tear on scans have no symptoms and are fully functioning. Avoiding moving your hip and avoiding general physical activity will not help. It is however advisable to manage your condition using the POLICE principle under the guidance of a physiotherapist. Pain-free clicking is nothing to worry about, as it is either tight tendons and ligaments flicking over the joints, or the release of nitrogen gas bubbles from your joints (cavitation). If there are high levels of pain with the clicking, instability or deformity of the hip then seek a medical assessment.
