You’ve most likely landed on our site as you’re looking for Help with your Hip Pain. It can be a frustrating journey for those in pain, trying to find the right advice and assistance. Our aim at Hip Pain Help is to put you in touch with a community of Hip Pain Professionals with a special interest and experience in the management of hip and pelvic pain.
The Hip Pain Professionals approach is based on 4 key pillars – A skilled assessment, individualised advice and education, effective treatment and finally, appropriate referral where needed.
1. Skilled Assessment
With their advanced knowledge, our Hip Pain Professionals will provide a faster and more accurate diagnosis. This avoids prolonged suffering and the expense of unnecessary treatments and investigations. Your Hip Pain Professional will also aim to determine not only WHAT the source of the problem is, but WHY it has developed.
2. Advice and Education
Your Hip Pain Professional will then develop a plan for HOW your particular problem should be best managed. Individualised advice and education on your condition and how to aid your own recovery can be extremely powerful in regaining control of your pain, and your life.
3. Effective Treatment
As we all know – the one-size-fits-all strategy doesn’t always work, especially not in healthcare. Your Hip Pain Professional will individualise your treatment based on their skilled assessment of your condition, to ensure a faster and more complete recovery.
4. Appropriate Referral
The final important pillar of the Hip Pain Professionals’ Approach is appropriate referral. The Hip Pain Professional community includes members from different professions such as physiotherapists, doctors with varying specialties, osteopaths and sports and exercise professionals. Your Hip Pain Professional will quickly recognise when you require a team approach or the assistance of a different type of health professional and refer you as necessary.
