Hip

Hip pain may be felt in the front, side or back of the hip. There are many symptoms of hip pain, including:

  • Tenderness
  • Limping
  • Groin pain
  • Clicking
  • Decreased range of motion

Hip pain is especially common in people over the age of forty-five. The most common causes of hip pain are:

  • Tendinopathy
  • Tendon tears, bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Labral tears
  • Osteoarthritis

There are also known risks associated with hip pain, such as obesity, prior history of trauma or surgery and congenital abnormalities of the hip. Women are especially at risk of developing hip problems, as are older adults. 

Many hip conditions are very responsive to our bone marrow and (PRP) platelet rich plasma treatments to boost the body’s own ability to heal damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal disc, or bone.

We will review, with you, your current and older X-rays, MRI’s, EMG’s and other diagnostic testing that you may have had performed. In many cases, if you do not have possession of images or reports we can request a copy of them from the facility where they were performed.

If you have not yet had these diagnostics performed we can easily help you to get them performed and reviewed with you.  It is very important that you have an understanding of your condition and a brief explanation of these tests are very helpful as you navigate to determine the most appropriate treatment.
