Hip Pain Treatment
Pain in the hip can make it difficult to sit, stand, walk and be comfortable when sleeping. The hip is the largest joint in the body, and there are many different components that can cause pain or dysfunction in this area. If you have hip pain, it impacts your ability to enjoy your life. Let our pain physicians at Medici Medical Arts help find the cause and treatment solution for your chronic hip pain.
The hip joint is comprised of many moving parts that can be prone to injury or degeneration. Muscle, bone, cartilage, tendons and ligaments are all intertwined to allow for movement of the legs. Injuries to the groin or hip when playing sports can require medical treatment and rehabilitation. More commonly, hip pain and dysfunction are caused by repetitive wear and tear, along with aging factors that affect the hip joint. Hip pain becomes more common with age, limiting mobility and causing chronic discomfort.
Not all hip pain is due to hip problems. The lower spine and back can contribute to hip pain. Herniated discs, spinal stenosis and inflammation in the lower back can cause sciatica and other referred pain that may be felt in the hip area.
