Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain can occur as a result of an injury, arthritis, or an underlying medical problem such as osteoporosis. Pinpointing the exact source of your pain and its origin can help the team at Pain Medicine Group develop an effective treatment strategy.

Common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis or tendonitis
  • Dislocation or fracture
  • Pinched nerve
  • Osteoporosis or osteomyelitis

Hip pain may also be caused by a medical condition that affects a different part of your body, such as a low back injury. Tight muscles in the hips and buttocks may also lead to hip pain.

How is hip pain diagnosed?

To identify the cause of your hip pain, your Pain Medicine Group provider conducts a thorough examination to find the location of your pain. Additional testing, such as an MRI or bone scan, may be needed to provide more objective information about the cause of your hip pain.

What is bursitis?

Bursitis is an inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion your bones and joints. Repetitive motions that put added pressure on the sacs are the most common cause of bursitis. Bursitis can occur in many parts of your body, but it’s common in the hips, especially among runners.

How is hip pain treated?

Pain Medicine Group is a full-service office and offers the most advanced treatment options to not only alleviate your pain but promote healing and prevent future pain as well.

Treatment options for hip pain include:

  • Medication management
  • Joint injections
  • Stem cell and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapies
  • Physical therapy

The recommended treatment for your hip pain depends on the cause.

What are stem cell and PRP therapies?

Both stem cell therapy and PRP therapy are cutting-edge treatments offered at Pain Medicine Group to accelerate your body’s natural healing power.

Stem cells are specialized cells that have the ability to develop into the type of cells your body needs, including new muscle or tendon cells. PRP is a blood product rich in bioactive proteins and growth factors that reduce inflammation and assist in the healing process.

Your provider at Pain Medicine Group may recommend a combination of stem cell and PRP therapies if your hip pain is due to arthritis or an injury.
