I Have Hip Pain, What Are My Treatment Options?

I have hip pain, what are my treatment options?

The most commonly prescribed treatment options are:

REST

Consistent study findings have shown bed rest is NOT an effective treatment for acute pain. My advice is to stay active and continue ordinary modified activities, which will result in a faster return to work, play and decrease other compensatory problems.

Medication

Medication is sometimes necessary to help patients cope with severe pain. However, medication only masks the pain and doesn’t address the true root of the problem. My advice is to treat the underlying cause of the pain, which will help prevent the development of a chronic condition or reoccurrence.

Referral to a Specialist

Most specialists end up prescribing conservative treatments such as Physiotherapy to their patients before exploring riskier options such as surgery.

Physiotherapy is your best option. Physiotherapy is a science of assessing and restoring motion. Which in turn improves your function and relieves your pain. Physiotherapy is non-invasive with no side effects and therapy is your most cost-effective solution. Physiotherapists can relieve your pain quickly when treated early, which in turn saves you money.

Are you in doubt as to what is your best option for pain relief, or, do have a question?  Please contact We-Fix-U owner David Evans by emailing him at davidevans(at)we-fix-u(dot)com.

You may also contact one of our locations by visiting the Locations Page of our website.

In addition, please feel free to leave comments about you have or are experiencing with your hip pain.

Pelvic Health Seminar – Wednesday, February 7th, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Sherry Heenan, Registered Orthopaedic and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist at the Cobourg location of We-Fix-U, will be giving a seminar on Pelvic Health on Wednesday, February 7th, at 7:00 pm.  The Cobourg Centre is located at 727 William Street in Cobourg.

Top 5 conditions that Pelvic Health Professionals treat with success: BLADDER & BOWEL INCONTINENCE, PREGNANCY RELATED PAIN, CHRONIC BACK PAIN, PELVIC ORGAN PROLAPSE AND PELVIC PAIN.

Pelvic Health concerns are far too common and rarely talked about. Many men and women suffer silently without realizing that there are effective, evidence-based treatment solutions. We-Fix-U wants to break this silence and help people understand and utilize these solutions. We want to help bridge the gap for patients to find a physiotherapist that has the required training to improve their quality of life.

By educating people about pelvic health dysfunction and physiotherapy, we hope to empower individuals to find real-life, conservative solutions for pelvic pain, pelvic girdle problems, painful intercourse, bladder and bowel incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

Please RSVP by February 5th by calling 905-373-7045 to reserve your spot. Bring a friend!

Relief Help for Vertigo and Dizziness

Vertigo and Dizziness

 How to Get Relief From Vertigo and Dizziness

Around and around and around and around and around…Do you remember spinning yourself around as a child, purposefully trying to create that feeling of a spinning room? Fortunately, this “fun” self-induced room spinning only lasts for a few brief seconds and then disappears. Many people, however, feel this type of dizziness chronically. Without any known triggers, this dizziness can occur spontaneously and last for hours, or even days.

Vertigo and dizziness is actually not a true diagnosis but is a symptom of a problem in your Vestibular System – the part of your inner ear or brain that controls your balance and eye movement. You may feel a sense that you or your environment is moving or spinning, even though it isn’t. You might feel lightheaded, or like you are floating or rocking. Some people feel as though they are heavy or are being pulled in one direction. Many problems of the Vestibular System are caused by injury, disease, your environment or may be genetic.
