Hip pain ranges from minor pinching felt during squats to excruciating pain that causes you to limp or even need the support of a cane. Like all joint injuries, the process of diagnosing and treating a hip injury is often long and circuitous. Do you need surgery? Physical therapy? Will the pain ever go away? In this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a physiotherapist who focuses specifically on hips.

Listen and learn:

  • What femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is and what it might mean for you
  • Why you should forget quick fixes and focus on a six months plus healing journey
  • Realistic options for post-hip replacement exercise and sport
  • Why labrum tears are so common in the general population and are usually asymptomatic
