Hip & Groin Pain


Physiotherapy for Hip & Groin Pain Melbourne

Hip and groin pain are common presentations to us here at KRP, so much so we’ve dedicated a Blog post to it, ‘What Is FAI?’. The hip itself is a very stable ball and socket joint. The ligaments and muscles of the hip add both passive and dynamic stability so that the hip can support your body weight when upright against gravity. It has a close relationship with your pelvis and lower back, which make the hip a difficult area to accurately assess and diagnose.

Led by Specialist Hip Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist, Australian College of Physiotherapy Fellow and University lecturer Jenny Hynes, the team here at KRP offers the latest proven advancements in physical therapy for hip and groin pain, as well as our onsite Exercise and Pilates studio - where you can rehab with a purpose.
