Hip Pain Q&A

What are the signs that I need help for hip pain?

Hip pain usually starts gradually, so you might not even realize there’s a problem at first. But the earlier you recognize and treat a hip problem, the more effective your treatment can be and the lower the chances you’ll need major surgery like a hip joint replacement.

 

Some early warning signs of hip problem include:

 

  • Hip or groin pain during exercise, walking, or at rest
  • Change in your gait (the way you walk), like limping
  • Hip stiffness, making it hard to bend or straighten
  • Swelling in the hip area
  • Tenderness when you touch your hip

 

All of these issues are possible signs of chronic hip problems, so it’s best to reach out to OmniSpine Pain Management promptly if any of these issues sound familiar.

 

What causes hip pain?

Many people think hip pain is part of aging, but it’s actually tied to an underlying injury, disease, or condition. The most common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis: bone death caused by poor blood flow
  • Bursitis: inflammation
  • Muscle strain: muscle stretching or tearing
  • Tendon strain: tendon stretching or tearing
  • Hip labral tear: cartilage tear
  • Groin hernias: tissue protruding through a muscle
  • Sacroiliitis: sacroiliac joint inflammation
  • Osteomyelitis: bone infection
  • Tendinitis: hip flexor tendon inflammation
  • Bone cancer

Hip pain can also come from the back. A problem that causes lower back pain, for example, a herniated disc, can lead to radiating pain that moves down one hip and leg (sciatica).

What can I expect during hip pain treatment?

OmniSpine Pain Management offers comprehensive hip pain management. All treatments are noninvasive or minimally invasive with little or no recovery time required. Some of the conservative treatments you might need include physical therapy, chiropractic care, and acupuncture.

 

Hip joint injections, like anesthetics and corticosteroids, can lessen inflammation and prevent pain signaling. Restorative cellular injections, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), can reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and trigger tissue repair in and around the hip joint.

 

Longer-lasting pain relief treatments for severe chronic hip pain include radiofrequency ablation (rhizotomy) that creates a heat lesion to deactivate the nerve triggering the pain.
