Causes of Hip Pain

Tendonitis

Acute hip pain can be caused by inflamed tendons due to excessive exercising. While hip pain caused by tendonitis can be painful, it also recedes in a few days.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition wherein the age-related wear-and-tear of the cartilage leads to hip pain. Cartilages are the slippery and soft components between the hip joints, responsible for the smooth and frictionless joint movement. When the cartilage breaks down due to age or injuries, the hip joints grind against each other, leading to severe hip pain.

Trochanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric bursitis is a condition wherein the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) on the outer edges of the hips are inflamed, leading to hip pain. The bursae act as cushions, preventing the bones from grinding against the soft tissues and muscles. People suffering from this condition experience pain at the edge of the hip.

Hip Fractures

Hip fractures can happen suddenly or gradually due to injuries or age-related conditions, like osteoarthritis. As the hip bones weaken with age, they can eventually get fractured due to falls, accidents, and physical injuries.

Other Causes

Hip pain can also occur due to various other factors, such as sciatica, sprains and strains, hip dislocation, osteonecrosis (blood doesn’t reach the bones), etc.

Diagnosing Hip Pain

Remedy Pain Solutions always diagnoses the root cause of your hip pain before recommending treatments. We believe a comprehensive diagnosis is essential for lasting relief because hip pain can indicate numerous factors, as shown above. Our interventional pain specialists discuss your symptoms, review your health history, and conduct physical examinations to determine the trigger points. Based on the findings, we perform numerous imaging tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans, to visualize the damage on the hip bones, cartilage, and joints.

Interventional Treatments for Hip Pain

After identifying the root cause of your hip pain, we curate a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan just for you. We avoid narcotic treatments that simply mask the pain without addressing the root cause, and we also avoid surgeries because they’re needlessly complicated and risky. Instead, we rely completely on interventional and regenerative treatments that provide lasting relief and encourage your body to repair naturally.

We use regenerative medicine, such as human cell and tissue therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, to make your body heal itself. These techniques encourage your body to heal healthy tissues, boosting your natural healing and recovery systems. As such, these treatments gradually reverse the effects of age or injuries on your joints, tendons, cartilage, and muscles, restoring optimal health.

Each individual receives a unique hip pain treatment plan, but the following are some of the treatment options:

  • Epidural injections reduce inflammation around the nerve roots.
  • Facet injections block the transmission of pain signals into the brain.
  • PRP therapy encourages your body to repair the damaged joints, cartilage, and tendons.
  • Other treatments that address the root cause of your hip pain.
