Common Hip & Knee Problems

The simple things in life are the most important. Hip and knee pain can remove the joy of walking outdoors, cycling with friends, strolling the beach and even just getting up the stairs or out of a chair! We want to bring back the joy in your everyday.

Our experts diagnose the source of the problem and provide a plan to achieve long lasting results. Here are a few common problems we see:


Knee Osteoarthritis & Cartilage tears

A deep aching pain through your knee joint, sharp pain turning on the knee, painful cracking on the line of the joint. Pain and swelling often causes you to protect the knee and so the joint becomes stiffer, weaker AND sorer with time. The longer this goes on the sorer and more restricted you become. Solution: Break the cycle, get some effective pain relieving treatment and a graduated rehabilitation programme 100% TAILORED to your needs and your condition. See our fantastic “Physio vs Surgery” section in our Relieve Hip & Knee Pain Guide Increase your mobility, reduce your day to day pain and start taking control of your joint pain. Speak with a physio for a FREE 10 min Telephone Consultation to discuss your pain with our experts.

Pain at the front of the knee

Kneecap pain (chondromalacia patella), patellar tendinopathy, bursitis are all common sources of pain at the front of the knee. All of these conditions often have common underlying sources that can lead to pain in that at the front of the knee. The position of your foot, ankle, hip and knee all play a part in this (don’t worry it can all be easily sorted with the right guidance). Check out our Relieve Hip & Knee Pain Guide to find out the key to sorting one of the most common causes of pain at the front of the knee.

Hip Osteoarthritis

If you have been diagnosed with Hip or Knee arthritis – don’t panic, there are a lot of ways you can effectively reduce your pain and increase your ability to walk, climb stairs and enjoy your hobbies and prolong the health of your joints. The biggest mistake you can make is just ignoring it – understand it and learn the tools to manage and improve your pain. Our experienced physios are treating people like you, with hip osteoarthritis week in, week out. If you would like to discuss how physio can help you take control of your condition then request a Free Taster Session with one of our experts or get your recovery started faster by Booking Now.

Hip & Buttock pain

You’re over 40 and you have an ACTUAL pain in the bum! You’re not alone! This is VERY common and often not at all related to any sort of arthritic condition. Pain in the hip and buttock is often related to an issue with the muscles or ligaments through the hip OR it can be coming from strain through the back or pelvis (often a bit of both). We LOVE this type of pain as it can be fully relieved very quickly. Expect a complete recovery with some expert treatment to relieve pain combined with effective rehabilitation to prevent the issue coming back. Just stretching may help in the short term but is destined to fail – check out our Relieve Hip and Knee Pain Guide for a few of our physio’s favourite exercises to help relieve stiffness in your sore bottom muscles – start today!

You Can Feel Better Too!

Portrush – Golfer’s Neck and Shoulder

My shoulder became so sore I couldn’t wash the car and struggled to play golf. My GP was only able to offer tablets. My first session of dry needling provided significant relief of my shoulder pain and I was able to sleep better as a result. I did my exercises and now I’m back doing all things I would like to without pain AND I’m getting a great nights sleep too!

Coleraine – Years of Back Pain

I suffered back pain for years and was regularly having to take painkillers prescribed by my GP. I’ve used lots of different physios in the past but this time at Causeway Physio & Pilates you helped ease my pain & taught me how to self manage. This time I feel like I’m in control.

Rosaleen McConaghy

Coleraine – Back pain & Sciatica

I was in severe pain with my legs, back and shoulders for 7 months. I wasn’t getting anywhere with the doctors. After going to Causeway Physio & Pilates I felt elevated. I feel so positive, I’m more active, I’m not afraid to move anymore and I’m sleeping a lot better, so it’s perfect!

"I have found that my left shoulder pain has reduced, I have better balance and better posture in everyday life. I found by starting at the basics I can understand and have been more aware of what I am actually meant to be doing. I will and have recommended Causeway Pilates to others."

10/10 rating from Nikki Crowe

"I find this class very good. I was in a previous Pilates class where I didn’t know if I was doing movement properly and the teacher didn’t get round to check on everyone. There is a Friendly atmosphere and I can ask Joanne questions without feeling foolish! I will and have recommended Causeway Pilates to others."

"I started Pilates to lose weight, tone and relax. I have really enjoyed Pilates as it is relaxing. Jo is a great instructor, friendly and good fun. I have noticed a difference as I feel more toned and not as stressed. Thank you Jo, I will be signing up for the next set of sessions."

"Having been to a large group exercise classes before, I was a bit nervous at maybe getting ‘lost’ is the group and then left to figure the moves for myself. But Jo’s classes are perfect, they are just the right size and Jo is able to still give individual attention when needed so that we don’t go wrong. I love this class. Even after just a few weeks I can feel a difference in my body, and my posture has improved too."

"What can I say?…. Causeway Pilates is simply fabulous!!!
I have been through a considerable amount of stress & anxiety this year, and someone suggested Pilates as a way to do some endorphin-boosting exercise which didn’t involve throwing myself around a gym (which I felt way too delicate to face!). Jo has been so kind & encouraging, whilst also helping us to each find our individual levels of challenge & to push ourselves further each session."
