About the program:
This program is aimed at conservative therapy for patients with an inflammation of the synovium (synovial membrane) of the hip joint.
You may begin this program after consulting your physician or a member of our team.
The goal of the program is to restore movement in the hip joint, to reduce the swelling, and to relieve the pain.
For a full and timely recovery, it is necessary to perform the exercises daily.
What the program contains:
- The program contains video playlists.
- A new playlist is loaded every day.
- The videos combine a detailed description of the exercise with a visual demonstration of how to correctly perform it.
- The exercises gradually progress in difficulty.

All rehabilitation exercises are only to be performed until you feel a stretch up to a mild discomfort. Under no circumstances should you cause yourself any pain. If you feel any pain, please take a short break and resume exercising at a reduced strain level. Overexertion will slow down the recovery process!

Synovitis is an inflammation of the synovial membrane of a joint. The synovial membrane lines the inside of the joint capsule. It is responsible for secreting synovial fluid. The most frequently affected are the hip, elbow, and knee joints. Synovitis is accompanied by excessive secretion of synovial fluid into the synovial cavity, as well as swelling and pain in the affected area. In addition to this, the joint’s motor function becomes disrupted. This type of inflammation occurs more frequently in children, predominantly boys. Hip synovitis is fairly rare in adults.
There are several types of hip joint synovitis:
Septic: In this case the illness is caused by an infection that has entered the joint via a wound or through the blood. The symptoms are very pronounced and the illness progresses quickly. It is often tied to a recently contracted infectious disease. Pain tends to be severe, with swelling and redness around the joint and heavily impaired movement.
Overreactive: This is a non-infectious inflammation due to an autoimmune response from the body. It develops gradually, with only slight initial pain. The joint swells up from the effusion (accumulated fluid). Patients with non-infectious synovitis tend to initially not notice the condition, because the unpleasant sensations might seem related to tiredness or a recent injury.
Transient: This type of synovitis affects children between 3 and 12 years of age. Synovitis coxae in children is slightly different from the condition in adults. The reason for it is not clear. Often it is connected to a recent infection or heightened physical strain that exceeds the child’s age and/or training. Allergic reactions have also been seen as a possible cause.
Traumatic: This is synovitis brought on by trauma to the hip joint.
Chronic: This can develop after an incompletely or improperly treated acute case of synovitis. The chronic form can be a complication of any other type of synovitis. It is characterized by constant recurrence and a gradual wearing down of the joint.
It is important to start synovitis treatment early, in order to reduce the chance of complications and recurrence. Therapy usually focuses on both eliminating the cause and alleviating the symptoms.
Most often, the condition is treated with conservative methods. Our rehabilitation program helps relieve the pain, improve blood circulation, and accelerate the recovery of the damaged tissue.
