Whether you got a torn tendon in your hip from running too hard, a hip labral tear from a car accident, or generalized hip pain from just getting older, the top-rated doctors at pain management in New York have solutions. Hip tendonitis treatment responds well to trigger point injections, such as reducing pain while rehabbing. All treatment for hip pain is treated with a focus on delivering the latest pain treatment options. Don’t accept hip joint pain as part of your life.

Hip pain is a common problem that affects people of all ages. Many different causes can trigger it. Pain in your hip can range from mild to debilitating, and your pain may be sharp, aching, or burning. Hip joint pain often feels like pain inside your hip or groin. Pain outside your hip may be triggered by soft tissue surrounding the hip joints, such as the ligaments, tendons, or muscles.

The pain management doctors in New York at the NYC pain center accurately diagnose what’s triggering your hip pain. They rely on the most advanced diagnostic equipment and fast, accurate laboratory testing to arrive at a correct diagnosis to recommend the best treatment for hip pain based on the actual cause.

Common Hip Injuries

Injuries are one of the most common causes of hip pain because the joint bears so much weight and is involved in many daily activities, from walking and exercising to standing up from a chair. You can injure your hip joint in a fall, from a car accident, while playing sports, or turn the wrong way. You’re at risk if your bones are already weakened by osteoporosis. A broken, dislocated, or damaged hip inevitably leads to hip joint pain. Some common hip injuries include:

Hip Pain Treatment in NYC

  • Hip flexor injury. Hip flexor muscles extend from your hips to your knees. Stretching or tearing these muscles happens because of overuse or trauma. This type of injury may cause swelling, muscle weakness, and a reduced range of motion.
  • Hip labral tear. A labral tear is a damage to the cartilage that lines the outer rim of your hip socket. This can be triggered by overuse or an accident that injures your hip.
  • Hip tendonitis. A frayed or torn tendon in your hip can cause tendonitis and inflammation of a tendon. Hip flexor tendonitis can be caused by a sudden injury or by repetitive motion over time.
  • Snapping hip syndrome. You may have this syndrome if you have a snapping sensation in your hip, accompanied by pain or audible noise. It’s often the result of repetitive movements such as running or ballet dancing, although it’s sometimes caused by injury.

Other Causes of Hip Pain

Underlying medical conditions may lead to hip pain, too. Inflammation of your hip joint and breakdown of the cartilage that cushions your bones can be caused by different forms of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. The aging process can cause the bones to become brittle and more prone to fractures.

Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs that cushion tendons, muscles, and joints. The bursa on the inner side of your hip can cause hip pain if it becomes inflamed, a condition called bursitis. Your hip joint can also become infected, leading to joint pain, warmth, swelling, and decreased range of motion.

Hip Pain Treatment

Effective hip pain treatment in NYC depends on determining the cause. Minor hip pain may respond to ice, elevation, and rest. Your best pain management specialist in NYC may recommend physical therapy or some of the following for hip injuries and pain:

  • Corticosteroid injections. Injection of a corticosteroid into your joint reduces inflammation and pain and may be used to treat several types of hip problems. For example, hip injections may be used as a form of hip tendonitis treatment or to relieve inflammation of the bursae.
  • Assistive devices. An assistive device, such as a walker or cane, helps reduce the pressure you place on your hip area, giving it time to heal correctly.
  • Compression wrap. Wrapping your hips tightly is a method of hip flexor pain treatment.
  • Radiofrequency ablation to treat hip pain and inflammation in the hip. Its works by denervation of nerves of the hip joint is a minimally invasive neurotomy technique that can provide pain relief in patients with chronic hip pain.
  • PRP injections. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection can lead to significant pain reduction and healing, particularly for orthopedic conditions.

Never ignore symptoms of hip pain or a reduced ability to move your hip. Pain that starts in the hip joint can radiate to your knee or your lower back. Pain in your hip can also be referral pain, which may indicate a condition in another part of your body.
