Hip Pain Q & A
What causes hip pain?
Hip pain can occur due to a variety of reasons. You may experience an injury or pain due to long-term dysfunction or overuse. Hip pain can be the cause of a degenerative condition, such as osteoarthritis. You may also experience hip pain due to a problem in your lower back or with your ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
Common causes of hip pain include:
- Strains or sprains
- Injuries that result in inflammation of your hip joint
- Pinched nerves
It’s time to seek professional help for hip pain when home remedies and rest no longer help it resolve. If you have swelling, stiffness, and pain that interferes with your daily life, call the office. Dr. Sahai performs a thorough physical exam, including imaging tests, to determine the cause of your pain and come up with an effective solution.
What are symptoms of serious hip pain?
Sometimes you have an ache that goes away on its own. But if you experience any of the following symptoms on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to consult Dr. Sahai:
- Severe or constant joint pain
- Limping or trouble walking
- Loss of motion in your hip joint
- Pain that radiates down your leg
- Difficulty sleeping on your hip
- Pain in your groin
- Redness or swelling around the hip joint
Hip pain may range from mild to severe. It can be dull and constant or sharp. Dr. Sahai provides effective pain management options for your ailing hip.
What treatments are available for hip pain?
Dr. Sahai evaluates your hip pain to determine an appropriate, customized course of treatment. Options for therapy include:
- Physical therapy
- Massage therapy
- Joint injections
- Neuromuscular stimulation
She may also recommend stem cell injections that help boost circulation, the release of growth hormone, and the development of new, healthy tissue. Treatment also depends on whether your hip pain is chronic and long-term or if it’s relatively new and immediate.
