Hip lameness: causes, associated pathologies and treatments

Lameness is a gait disorder that can have a major impact on a sufferer's daily life. In this article, we take a look at the causes of gait lameness, the pathologies that can induce it and how the Allyane method can help.  

Hip lameness: what causes it?

Lameness refers to a difficulty in walking caused by instability in stepping. There are three main causes of lameness:

  • an analgesic cause: the pain provokes an evasion of the step;
  • unequal length of the lower limbs.

What are the different hip pathologies that can cause a walking limp?

Hip pathologies that can lead to walking lameness are many and varied. They include

  • neurological damage (paralysis, hemiplegia following stroke, etc.);
  • traumatic injuries (fractures, sprains, etc.);
  • surgical sequelae (hip prostheses, ligamentoplasties, etc.), pubalgia...).

What can be the consequences of hip lameness?

Hip lameness has major functional repercussions. It can, for example, reduce a person's walking perimeter and thus their independence. It can also have repercussions on simple activities of daily living, as well as on the social life of the sufferer.

Hip lameness and Allyane method

The Allyane neuromotor reprogramming method effectively works on pelvic stability, in particular by focusing on recruitment of the gluteus medius, a muscle essential for frontal pelvic stability.
Our method also has a lasting effect on the horse's posture. Indeed, in lameness, and more generally in hip pathologies, it is essential to work in 3 areas:

  • maximum hip mobility;
  • fighting the pain caused by lameness;
  • work on pelvic stability.

The Allyane method

Addressed motor difficulties

Find below the other pathologies treated by the Allyane method.

Shoulder pathology

The Allyane method can also be used to treat shoulder disorders, including the after-effects of capsulitis, shoulder instability (which can occur following a dislocation or subluxation), as well as disorders related to postoperative effects (amplitude deficit, etc.).

Knee pathology

Our method of neurological and motor rehabilitation allows for the effective treatment of traumatic
traumatic knee pathologies, such as recurrence of sprains, cruciate ligaments
knee prostheses, patellofemoral syndrome or knee flessum.

Elbow pathology

Certain elbow pathologies can also be treated with Allyane's physical medicine and rehabilitation method. These include the after-effects of tendinopathy, elbow stiffness and non-mechanical mobility disorders (flexion, extension and pronosupination).

Neurological pathology

The Allyane method can also be used to rehabilitate certain
neurological conditions, in particular those that may arise following a stroke (Parkinson's), multiple sclerosis, incomplete spinal cord injury,
or in the context of spasticity regulation.

Hip lameness

Defects in active mobility (flexion/extension), stability (insufficiency of the gluteus medius) or lameness induced by a hip prosthesis can be effectively corrected by the Allyane rehabilitation method.

Pathologies of the trunk and spine

Certain pathologies of the trunk and spine such as kyphosis, scoliosis, sciatica and lumbago can be treated with our neuromotor reprogramming method.

Wrist and hand motor skills

The Allyane method allows for effective management and is part of a complete care programme.

Ankle instability

The Allyane method is particularly effective in the context of functional re-education
functional rehabilitation in connection with certain ankle pathologies, in particular: recurrence of sprains, muscular disorders (insufficient lifters), motor inhibitions after immobilisation and post-operative effects.
