Hip pain is a common issue among American adults and is a frequent cause of disability today. The Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation treats causes of hip pain, including:
Common injuries that may lead to hip pain include fractures, tendinitis, labral tears, loose cartilage, bursitis, and dislocations. Some injuries are sudden, but most injuries that cause hip pain develop following years of pressure on the hips and the surrounding tissue.
The hip joints can wear down over time to cause hip pain. Osteoarthritis is a common example of this. Certain factors (like carrying extra weight) can increase your risk of developing wear-and-tear conditions in the hips. Sometimes, wear-and-tear injuries may start in the spine; for example, a herniated spinal disc can cause hip pain or shooting pain down the leg (sciatica).
Hip pain can also occur due to infections, cancer, and other causes.
The team assesses all your symptoms, reviews your medical history, and discusses your past treatments with you. You’ll also have a physical exam and generally need imaging tests, for example, an ultrasound, CT scan, bone scan, or X-ray.
If you come to the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation for a second option, the team compares your past findings with up-to-date information to determine your diagnosis.
In most cases, you can avoid surgeries like hip replacement, but you’re best able to do this if you pursue treatment earlier instead of later. At the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation, multidisciplinary specialists use a team approach to diagnose and treat hip pain without surgery.
Treatments can include:
Most patients with hip pain need to make some lifestyle changes. For example, did you know that walking is one of the best things you can do to relieve hip pain? The team can help you find diet, exercise, and other routine changes that work alongside your pain treatments.
Hip pain hurts not only your hip joint but your whole quality of life if you don’t get help. For true, long-lasting hip pain relief, call the Center for Spine, Joint, and Neuromuscular Rehabilitation office nearest you or click the online booking feature now.
