Hip trajectory

The hip is the joint between the pelvis and the thigh. The hip consists of an acetabulum and a femoral head. This head moves in the socket when the hip moves, for example when walking. There are many muscles and other structures surrounding this joint. There are many different types of hip complaints, which can have different causes. Common examples of hip conditions include hip osteoarthritis (also called coxarthrosis), hip fractures, hip dysplasia, bursitis, tendonitis and many more. These conditions can lead to pain, stiffness, functional range of motion, and impaired quality of life.

Fortunately, many people with hip problems can benefit from effective rehabilitation treatment that helps them recover and resume their daily activities.

Intake and diagnosis

An accurate diagnosis is important before rehabilitation is started. Our physiotherapists will perform a history in combination with a physical examination, map out medical history and request possible additional imaging, such as X-rays from MRI scans, to determine the exact cause of the hip complaints.

A personal treatment plan is drawn up based on the diagnosis. The treatment plan depends on the severity of the hip complaints and can cover different treatment variables.

Rehabilitation with hip complaints

Exercise therapy for hip complaints is a non-invasive, conservative approach aimed at relieving pain, improving mobility and increasing the functionality of the hip. Furthermore, by strengthening the right muscles and teaching good posture and movement patterns, exercise therapy can help prevent future hip complaints.

Exercise therapy for hip complaints includes a range of exercises that are tailored to the specific needs and level of the patient. Our rehabilitation program for hip complaints consists of one or more of these exercise themes:

  • Mobility exercises: Exercises that promote hip mobility can be included to increase range of motion and reduce any limitations.
  • Strengthening exercises: Exercises that focus on strengthening the muscles around the hip, such as the glutes, hip flexors and hip abductors, can be included to promote stability and reduce stress on the hip joints.
  • Core stabilization: The core (abdominal and back muscles) plays an important role in maintaining good posture and distributing the load during movements. Exercises aimed at core stabilization can increase the effectiveness of the exercise program.
    Balance and coordination exercises: These exercises can help improve balance, which is important for preventing falls and performing daily activities with more confidence.
