Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain?

Your hips help you to maintain balance as you move, support your upper body, and experience a lot of repetitive movements. These physical demands make the hip joints vulnerable to painful injuries and degenerative conditions.

Our team frequently treats hip pain caused by:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Joint dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Overuse injuries
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Synovitis
  • Labral tears
  • Hip impingement (excess bone growth)
  • Sacroiliac joint (SI) dysfunction

SI joint dysfunction occurs when the joint between your spine and hips becomes inflamed, or the ligaments weaken.

What are the symptoms of hip pain?

The conditions that cause hip pain usually come with other symptoms as well. You can experience:

  • Swelling
  • Joint stiffness
  • Limited movement
  • Muscle weakness
  • Limping (your hip is too painful to bear weight)
  • Grinding or clicking sensations in the hip joint

Hip pain usually worsens when you’re active or lying on the affected side.

How is hip pain treated?

In most cases, our team begins your treatment with the most appropriate conservative therapies. We create a care plan using treatments like:

  • Avoiding activities that cause pain
  • Using an assistive device (walker or cane)
  • Taking anti-inflammatory medication
  • Participating in physical therapy
  • Getting a joint injection
  • Nerve block
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections

If you suffer a hip fracture or your pain doesn’t improve or gets worse, you might need to consider surgery. 

What if I need hip surgery?

Our experienced orthopedic surgeons at Integrity Spine & Orthopedics offer several surgeries depending on the underlying cause of your hip pain.

Arthroscopic surgery

Our surgeons can perform minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery by making a small incision and using specially designed instruments, including a scope with a video camera. During arthroscopy, we closely examine the tissues using images sent from the camera to a monitor. Then we repair problems like bursitis, a labral tear, or tendinitis.

Hip preservation

If you have arthritis, our team might recommend surgery to repair damaged cartilage, reconstruct ligaments, or reshape the joint. This surgery keeps the joint healthy and delays the need for a joint replacement.

Hip replacement surgery

When advanced arthritis has caused significant joint damage, a joint replacement is the best choice to eliminate the pain and restore mobility.
