Hip and Groin Pain

Pain in the hip and groin affects millions of people worldwide, and the causes can be wide-ranging. Thankfully, there are treatments out there for the majority of problems, and we would always recommend getting a full assessment with a healthcare professional who can direct you towards the most effective treatment.

  • Arthritis in the hip joint
  • Lower back problems
  • Hernia
  • Pregnancy – pelvic girdle pain
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle and tendon injuries

Treatment will differ from problem to problem, but on the whole we offer joint mobilisations, exercises, pelvic & core strengthening programmes, Pilates, electrotherapy, injections and self-management techniques.


A hernia happens when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes past a weak post in the fascia (connective tissue) or surrounding muscle. There are several common hernia types, including inguinal, incisional, femoral and umbilical.

Inguinal hernia:

Occurs when the intestine or bladder pushes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. 


Incisional hernia:

This involves the intestine pushing through the abdominal wall in the same place as a previous abdominal surgery. 


Femoral hernia:

Happens when the intestine carries the femoral artery into the upper thigh.


Umbilical hernia:

The small intestine moves through the abdominal wall near the naval.

The most common hernia treatment method is to have surgery and it will depend on the severity of your symptoms. For example, a doctor may recommend open surgery to push bulging tissue back through the abdomen.


Bursitis is a term used to describe a painful and debilitating condition where a structure called a bursa becomes inflamed. Bursa are sac-like structures found throughout the body, normally where tendons attach to bone. The purpose of the bursa is to reduce friction at the joint, allowing movement to be smooth and pain-free. 


Symptoms of bursitis are normally pain in the area, reduced movement in the limbs and difficulty sleeping on the affected area.

  • Shoulder – subacromial bursitis
  • Elbow – olecranon bursitis
  • Knee – suprapatellar & infrapatellar bursitis
  • Ankle – retrocalcaneal bursitis
  • Hip – trochanteric & gluteal bursitis

Self-management techniques include anti-inflammatory medication, ice or heat and rest. Treatments here at Delta include injections, electrotherapy, advice/education, home exercises.


Lower back pain (LBP) is easily the most common ailment we see in the clinic and it’s prevalent throughout the world. It’s estimated that it accounts for 11% of the total disability of the UK population, with 1 in 15 people per year seeking help from their GP. 

Most of these patients will be diagnosed with ‘non-specific lower back pain’ or NSLBP for short. All this means is that we can’t be sure of the exact cause of the patient’s pain. This is because there are a number of structures in the back where pain is felt, such as spinal discs, joints, nerves, muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments. 


Symptoms last from a few days to a few weeks, and are often resolved with self-management and physiotherapy.


Symptoms last roughly from 4-12 weeks.

Femoral hernia:

Happens when the intestine carries the femoral artery into the upper thigh.

Chronic (persistent):

Symptoms last more than 12 weeks and can persist despite medical intervention.

At Delta, we use a number of treatments to alleviate your lower back symptoms including manual therapy (manipulation & mobilisation), massage, Pilates, exercise rehabilitation, heat, and in some cases acupuncture.
