Having attended goPhysio 2 years ago for a different issue, I didn’t hesitate to arrange a consultation for a new problem.With a pandemic lockdown, I wondered if they would be open but they were and I felt completely safe. Treatment began on my first visit after a thorough analysis of the issue. I had put off doing anything about the tendonitis for far too long but now after a course of treatment and an exercise program, I am well on the road to a complete recovery. The receptionists and Physiotherapist were always friendly, and courteous. I feel lucky to have goPhysio on the doorstep!

Which painkillers are best for my hip pain?
I think I have osteoarthritis, will I need a hip replacement?
due to the longer-term nature of their condition, the severity of pain while weight bearing and marked limitation in mobility and day to day activities. Nevertheless a physiotherapy assessment would assess the severity and degree of functional deterioration, the prognosis from treatment and we’d refer you on for x-ray and surgical opinion if relevant. However surgery is often not the answer. For the vast majority of people it’s about treatment and exercises to get active and fit. Less than 3% of people with hip pain might be considered for surgery.
