I have always been quite active, enjoying long walks and regular exercise classes. Over the last six months I have been suffering from a hip problem, with my normal activities causing me a lot of pain.
I had originally tried a different physio and after 3 exercises I felt that I wasn’t really making progress so I decided on the recommendation of a friend to go to Causeway Physio & Pilates.
At my first appointment I chatted over my history and went through a range of different movements and exercises, also looking at the types of exercises I was doing at my classes. From these observations we found that I had been “cheating” at some of these exercises to protect my hip, and that I was actually doing exercises that aggravating my hip.
After 5 sessions, including a mix of both stretching and strengthening exercises, dry needle treatment and treatment to my back and pelvis I have now returned to walking relatively pain free and continuing to improve.
Roll on the next 30km Causeway Challenge walk, which I hope to be part of. Thank you Causeway Physio & Pilates
