Hips

Overview

Problems with the hip can present as pain in the groin, pelvis, thigh, buttocks, and/or knee. It can cause weakness, stiffness, swelling, locking or popping, and limping. The pain can occur suddenly or gradually worsen over time. Hip problems can stem from an injury, arthritis, or inflammation in the actual hip joint itself or the surrounding structures (including muscles, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue). Pathology or disease of other body parts, including the low back, sacroiliac (SI) joint, and knee, can also present as hip pain. The hip’s major role in movement of the lower body can result in limitations which significantly affects your daily life including valued hobbies and activities, sitting, walking, sexual activities, standing, dressing, and even resting/sleeping.

There are a variety of treatment options for hip pain that range from non-operative treatments to advanced surgical interventions. Conservative treatments include physical therapy, medication (anti-inflammatories), diagnostic and therapeutic injections (corticosteroid), assistive devices, low impact exercise, RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation), and massage.

Our Personalized and Patient-Centered Approach

At Orthopaedic Associates, we acknowledge, as with all musculoskeletal problems, that optimal treatment requires careful evaluation and diagnosis. The most common reason for failure to improve with conservative treatment is due to an inaccurate diagnosis. Therefore, our specialists emphasize a thorough work up to accurately diagnose your pain though a comprehensive medical history, physical exam, and diagnostic imaging when indicated. Our team takes your unique lifestyle and treatment goals into account when customizing a comprehensive treatment plan that is right for you. We will engage you in your course of treatment along the way with open communication and understanding. Our experienced and dedicated team is focused on relieving the source of your hip pain and restoring your quality of life.
