What is RSI in the Hip?

Repetitive Stress Injuries generally occur in those over the age of 30. The incidence of this type of injury is becoming more widespread as many sports and jobs that now require people to make repetitive actions such as typing, or clicking a computer mouse. In the hip it occurs frequently in runners and cyclists.


How do they occur?

These injuries often result when stress is placed on a joint due to the same action being performed over and over. The two most common types of repetitive stress injuries are Tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon) and Bursitis (inflammation of a structure called the bursa which is a sac-like structure within a joint).



Physio Team-Works can help you resolve your pain and get back to full function. Treatment can consist of exercises, stretches, and electrotherapy, functional bracing/strapping, mobilisation techniques. Injection therapy was deemed appropriate.



Success of surgery depends a lot on what happens in the postoperative stages. It is important to maximise the surgery by doing exercises that help to stabilise, mobilise and protect the area. Your consultant may also recommend you have some sort of pre-operative intervention; we are ideally suited to do this.
