Hip pathologies are not only suffered by the elderly. It is becoming increasingly common to see young people suffering from hip pain as a result of sporting activities. Among elderly patients the most common injury is hip arthrosis.

The Arthrosis Unit has a Hip Unit offering conservative non-surgical treatment through rehabilitation and education programmes involving controlled exercise. The aim is to offer the patient the opportunity to improve the mechanical operation of the joint which in turn will help to alleviate the hip pain. The UCA team and the physiotherapists of the Advanced Physiotherapy Unit will facilitate exercises to strengthen the hip in order to keep it firm and this way provide additional protection to the joint.

Furthermore, in the Hip Unit there is a team of specialists in hip surgery assisted by nurses and physiotherapists responsible for the treatment and integral care of the surgical patient.
