Several months ago I was stricken with severe sciatica, strong pain killers were prescribed by my GP but they had unacceptable side effects. I contacted Skelian and Jamie quickly sorted out my problem, without further medication. During the course of my treatment, I found that Jamie's manipulations of my neck gave a certain amount of relief to the vertigo and muzziness “brain fog”, which I had been suffering from, for the past five years. I am thankful to Skelian and Jamie in particular for his caring approach to my ailments, he has an excellent bedside manner and he has given me beneficial advice to help with my long standing dizziness problems.

Very happy. Jamie was great - friendly and professional. I certainly felt that I was in good hands and could already feel the benefits after my first visit. After three sessions the pain has gone.

I highly recommend the Skelian Clinic. The lovely Aaron has cured my lower back pain in a matter of a few weeks so that I can now resume and enjoy my walks. Everyone at the clinic is very professional, kind and friendly. Thank you.

I walked in to the Skelian clinic at my wit's end - my neck and shoulders hurt from decades of poor posture due to computer work, my left forearm was tight and painful and I had been suffering with agonizing tennis elbow in my right arm which was waking me up every night. It felt like my entire upper body had seized up. From the moment I entered the clinic I felt a good vibe - Angela, the receptionist, made me feel relaxed and welcome and was just lovely to be around, she takes a genuine interest in every client and radiates warmth - and has a lovely singing voice to boot! Victoria, who I cannot thank enough, has worked miracles. After four treatments, using a combination of dry needle therapy, targeted deep tissue massage and spinal manipulation I feel like a different person. The pain has almost completely gone and I have a workable action plan on how to look after my joints. Victoria is empathic, exceptionally knowledgeable, witty and a great listener. She explains what she is doing in straightforward language and puts you at ease immediately. I can honestly say that I am blown away by the results, it is life changing to have that debilitating pain taken away. I wish I'd gone sooner. If you are suffering with neck, back or joint problems please just book an appointment online, you owe it to yourself.

I've been coming to Dani for regular Sports Massage appointments for nearly a year now, recently transitioning on to the Hot Stones massage. As someone who likes to regularly weight train these sessions have been invaluable to my recovery and have ensured that any aches, pains and knots are kept to their absolute minimum. I've recently moved over to the Hot Stones massage and highly recommend it, it's a great mixture of traditional sports massage techniques combined with the hot stones - this will be my go to massage moving forward. Dani is extremely welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to be around - I can't rate her highly enough!

Friendly, professional service. Tom has been fantastic at sorting out my neck and back issues, providing explanation before, during and after treatment as well as providing after care exercises I can do at home. I have been delighted with my treatment so far. Thank you!

Hip Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. Read more about hip pain on this page.

About Hip Pain

Hip pain can arise from the joint itself, the surrounding soft tissue, the back, or even the groin. The sensation of pain is subjective and can range from a mild, annoying ache to severe, debilitating pain that interferes with daily activities. It can be constant or intermittent, and it may worsen with activity, especially weight-bearing movements.

The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause. Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh, or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.

Conditions That Cause Hip Pain

Several conditions can lead to hip pain, including:

  • Osteoarthritis: The most common form of arthritis, often affecting older adults.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune condition that can affect any joint, including the hip.
  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint.
  • Tendinitis: Inflammation or irritation of the tendons attached to the hip.
  • Strains: Injuries to the muscles or tendons around the hip.
  • Hip fractures: These can cause sudden hip pain and are particularly serious in older adults due to the risk of complications.
  • Labral tear: A tear in the ring of cartilage (labrum) that follows the outside rim of the socket of your hip joint.

Treatment for Hip Pain

The treatment for hip pain will depend on the diagnosis. However, the following are common approaches:

  • Medication: To manage pain and inflammation.
  • Physiotherapy: To strengthen the muscles around the hip and improve flexibility.
  • Surgery: In cases where other treatments have failed, surgery may be necessary.

Treatment Options for Hip Pain

Treatment options vary based on the cause of the pain and may include:

  • Medications: Over-the-counter pain relievers or prescription drugs.
  • Physiotherapy: Exercises to increase strength, flexibility, and reduce pain.
  • Injections: Corticosteroids or lubricants can be injected into the joint to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Surgery: For severe cases, such as hip fractures or significant arthritis, surgical options like hip replacement may be considered.

Frequently Asked Questions

For a comprehensive assessment and tailored treatment plan, it’s best to consult with one of our healthcare professionals who can diagnose the specific cause of your hip pain and recommend the most appropriate treatment options.
