The majority of the adults in the U.S. population close to 60%) are living with pain. One of the most debilitating types of joint pain involves the hip joint. Sports injury, trauma, sprain or strain, overuse, and misuse results in hip and pelvis stiffness, decreased flexibility, poor posture, and chronic pain. If the pain is concentrated at the area of the hip, upper thigh, or lateral buttock region, then this may indicate an issue with the muscles, ligaments, Tendons, and other soft tissues around the hip joint.
Our team of expert doctors will determine the specific cause of your hip pain, and recommend the best course of treatment to help you avoid drugs or surgery. The doctors will take a medical history, perform a thorough neurological and orthopedic evaluation, take X rays to determine the best therapy options for you.
Causes of Hip Pain
Common causes of hip pain are osteoarthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, muscle strain, and ligament sprain. As one ages, hip pain becomes more common. Chronic mechanical stress on the hip joint can cause the bones to wear down and experience micro tears in the hip soft tissues and bone disease.
