Now Learn More About The Different Sorts of Hip Pain

Hip Pain

Hip pain & injury is commonly spread across all age groups of our community. The hip joint and where it integrates with your pelvis, sacroiliac joint, and the lumbar spine (lower back). This makes it a complex region to correctly analyse, assess any dysfunction, and to action a plan for pain relief. (Done)

Sporting Hip Pain & Injury

Sports related hip pain & injury may come on after prolonged running, jumping or landing activities. Sporting hip conditions e.g. Hip Bursae, bio-mechanical hip weakness. That should be discussed and thoroughly assessed by your Bowen Therapy Specialist.

Groin Pain & Injury

Groin pain is one of the most common symptoms associated with hip joint pain, e.g. hip osteoarthritis and hip labral injury. There are also many other causes of groin pain that need to be excluded by a health professional and then you are clear to work with you Bowen Therapy Specialist.

The Older Or Aged Hip

If you are in the older population group of our community, you could be more susceptible to age-related hip issues. E.g. hip Arthritis, Trochanteric bursitis and Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome. A lack of movement or functional limitation, could include walking, sit to stand, standing on one leg, stairs, or even sleeping.

Hip pain can also be linked to reduced balance. A thorough balance assessment may be required to minimise a fall risk. Falls prevention exercises may be prescribed by your physiotherapist or Bowen Therapy Specialist to address any individual needs. They may even advise you to utilise a walking assistance device such as a walking stick, or a walking frame.

A hip assessment and action plan with your Bowen Therapy Pain Relief Specialist will address your hip problems, and can effectively relieve your current hip pain and joint restriction… Plus helps prevent the return of any future hip pain. Done

Hip Bursae Pain & Inflammation

Inflammation of the Hip Bursae can be very painful to any person… The hip region of the human body contains two major bursae. What is a bursae? A bursae is a fluid filled sac like cavity that is especially designed for countering friction. In the hip there is two, one is located on the outside of the hip and it is called the trochanteric bursa. The other one is called the ischial bursa which covers the area of bone called the ischial tuberosity. These bones are known informally as the sitting bones. The Inflammation of either bursae may lead to pain and stiffness around the hip joint. This is not to be confused with the true joint pain of arthritis. Most common forms of Hip Bursae inflammation is overuse from running, cycling, and similar activities of sport. This condition causes hip pain that tends to worsen at night, and getting up from a seated position may also cause pain. Treatment of inflammation of the hip bursae or hip bursitis consists of avoiding activities that produce symptoms and taking non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and swelling. Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, & Bowen Therapy, and with extreme cases steroid injections may be warranted. Using a cane or hospital crutches may help take the load off the inflamed area.


Testimonials – Reviews are without doubt the highest praise that can be given over the last 30 years. I have received a large number of testimonials from delighted clients… This is just one!

To whom it may concern,

BEN SETTER – the young fellow I first met at a Bowen Therapy Course in Cairns 1994 – I was doing my initial course and Ben was continuing to expand his knowledge. It was obvious then that the candle had been lit for Ben’s love and belief in Bowen Therapy. He still, today, has that same enthusiasm. Everybody at the course wanted to be in Ben’s group and I happened to be one of the lucky ones.
We continued to get together at many more BT courses and his help and guidance were readily forthcoming, and much appreciated.
The years rolled by and, even though I had kept myself active, found I had a pain I couldn’t shift. Due to personal reasons, I had given up working with Bowen Therapy. My experiences as a therapist over the time were quite extra-ordinary. The results achieved and the easing of pain, were almost unbelievable.
My thoughts, amidst all the pain, went to my friend, Ben. I prayed that he was still working with Bowen Therapy. To my great relief, I found him in Townsville – Jan 2020. He didn’t hesitate to treat me and he made that wonderful contact and the old friendship rekindled.
It has not been an easy road back to come sort of normality for me, Ben encouraged me all the way. I spent many hours driving to and from Townsville, stopping every 30 minutes to get out of the car and walk for a short time. My gratitude is very profound to Ben and I can now play tennis, exercise, play bowls, etc and do all these things without pain.

Thank God for Ben and Bowen Therapy.
