Is it Time to See a Doctor About Your Hip Pain?

hip_pain.jpgAccurately diagnosing the cause of your hip pain is crucial. Without knowing the underlying cause of your hip pain – any treatment plan will be ineffective. To effectively treat your hip pain, our Multidisciplinary Therapeutic Team works in unison to correctly diagnose the underlying cause of your discomfort.

Common Causes of Hip Pain

Our pain management specialists arrive at a correct diagnosis of the cause of your hip pain after conducting an evaluation of your lifestyle, activities, and symptoms.

  • Injury or trauma: falling on the outside of the hip
  • Repetitive pressure on the hip: excessive biking, running, standing
  • Age and gender: women in over the age of 40 are more prone to hip pain than are men
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and gout: inflammation in the hip
  • Everyday wear and tear and/or overuse of the hip
  • The natural aging process
  • Sports-related injuries
  • Poor structural problems (for example, a short leg)
  • Arthritic condition
  • Congenital abnormality
