Treatment of hip lameness, post-operative and other gait disorders
Hip lameness: what causes it?Lameness is a difficulty in walking caused by instability during the passage of the step. There are three main causes of lameness:
- Analgesic: the pain causes the patient to avoid taking the step.
- Muscular insufficiency: often due to damage to the gluteus medius.
- Unequal length of the lower limbs.
What are the different hip conditions that can cause lameness?They are diverse and varied, including :
- Neurological damage (paralysis, hemiplegia following a stroke, etc.)
- Traumatic injuries (fractures, sprains, etc.)
- Surgery after-effects (hip prostheses, ligamentoplasties, etc.)
What can be the consequences of lameness?Lameness has major repercussions from a functional point of view: it reduces a person's walking range and thus their independence, and it also has repercussions on simple activities of daily living and on social life.
Hip lameness and Allyane methodThe Allyane method allows you to work effectively on the stability of the pelvis, in particular by working on the recruitment of the gluteus medius, an essential muscle in the frontal stability of the pelvis. It also allows to have a perennial action on the posture of the person. In lameness and more generally in hip pathologies, it is essential to work on 3 axes:
- Maintain maximum mobility at the hip.
- Fighting the pain that leads to lameness
- Work on the stability of the pelvis

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.).
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.
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.
