Hip Pain Q&A

What causes hip pain?

The hip involves several different bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, tissue, plus fluid sacs (called bursa). In addition, the largest nerve in the body, the sciatic nerve, runs through the hip joint. With such a complex area as the hip, proper diagnosis and treatment are important.

Besides pain in the inside or outside of the hip, upper thigh or buttock, you may feel swelling, tenderness, or experience a loss of motion, all indicating a possible hip condition.

The most common hip conditions include:

  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Pinched nerves
  • Labral tears (hip cartilage)
  • Hip tendonitis
  • Chronic hip pain (trochanteric bursitis)
  • Avascular necrosis (disintegration of bone tissue)
  • Muscle or ligament strains or tears

How are hip conditions diagnosed?

The team of practitioners at the Integrative Pain Institute are experienced at pinpointing the cause of your hip pain. First, they conduct a comprehensive joint evaluation, including studying the level of pain you are experiencing and whether arthritis plays a role. They frequently order X-rays to examine your joint alignment in the hip, and may order an MRI if soft tissue or muscles may be affecting your pain.

How are hip conditions treated?

Your course of treatment will depend on the exact condition causing your hip pain. However, Integrative Pain Institute offers a wide range of treatments for hip conditions. Conservative treatment options include physical therapy, weight loss (to reduce pressure on the hip joint), steroid injections (to reduce inflammation quickly), prescription pain medications, and TENS treatment, which uses electrothermal signals to temporarily interrupt pain signals to the brain.

Newer treatment options include laser therapy, which utilizes light energy to stimulate the healing process for degenerative hip problems, relieving pain and inflammation safely in a non-invasive, painless way. Stem cell injections are another new treatment that can provide safe, effective relief for hip pain. Using your own body’s healing power, your Integrative Pain Institute practitioner removes stem cells from your body and injects them into the site of the pain, causing your body to regrow damaged tissue or cartilage, and speed up the healing process.

There’s no reason to let hip pain slow you down. People in the Dallas, Plano, McKinney, and surrounding areas of Texas can receive fast, effective, and state-of-the-art treatment for hip pain at the Integrative Pain Institute.
