Physio Edge podcast

Lateral hip pain is a condition patients present with regularly to Physiotherapists, with pain walking or standing, sleeping on their side, stretching of the posterior hip, and sitting, amongst other symptoms, and can often mimic lumbar spine pathology. In this episode, Alison and I discuss symptoms, assessment and treatment of an extremely common cause of lateral hip pain - Glute Med Tendinopathy (GMT), that is often incorrectly diagnosed as “trochanteric bursitis”.

Some of the aspects we explore in this podcast are:

  • Subjective clues that someone may have a Glute Med Tendinopathy
  • “Trochanteric Bursitis”
  • Differentiating Glute Med Tendinopathy from pain of Lumbar origin
  • Assessment of the hip
  • Tests to confirm or rule out a Glute Med Tendinopathy
  • Causes of a Glute Med Tendinopathy
  • Advice for patients
  • Treatment of Glute Med Tendinopathy
  • Deep hip muscle activation
  • How to design a treatment program to make the difference between it working and failing
  • much more

I also want to take this moment to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year.
