Welcome to Hip Pain Help

What is Hip Pain Help about?

Hip Pain Help is a one stop shop for those suffering with hip pain.  Learn what might be causing your issues, how you might be able to best manage what is happening, and who best to contact if you need further help.

Hip pain Help was bought together by three physiotherapists who were frustrated at the lack of what was out there to help guide patients with hip pain, both in diagnoses and management.  There was even greater frustration at the massive amounts of “fake news” slapped around the internet on what you should be doing, but based on absolutely no research, frequently potentially aggravating not easing things.

Welcome to Hip Pain Help.

Having established a successful private practice with a team of 10 physiotherapists in Brisbane, Australia, I continue to find great reward in assisting those with hip pain in their journey of recovery. However, every day I hear heartbreaking personal stories about avoidable ‘wrong turns’ in the management of their musculoskeletal pain. People from around the globe, email me asking for help, telling me how delays in their diagnosis or inappropriate treatment have had adverse impacts on their health, quality of life and finances.

If only these people had found a knowledgeable health professional to provide helpful advice earlier in their journey. This is why Hip Pain Help was created.

Together with my respected colleague, Kirsty McNab, we embarked on a project to bridge the gap: connect those in need with those who can help them.

At Hip Pain Help, we strive to provide the best outcomes for those around the world suffering from hip and pelvic pain.  How?

Firstly, by connecting you with high quality information. Hip Pain Help is far more than just a directory, it’s packed with high-quality information you can trust, including emerging evidence and treatment options for painful conditions around the hip and pelvis.
