Hip Pain Treatment

Hip pain isn’t just a problem that affects the elderly after years of wear and tear. While older people are more likely to develop persistent hip pain than young adults, strenuous activities, accidents, and improper body movements can also cause hip pain. Early intervention raises the likelihood that you will not experience long-term chronic pain. Redefine Healthcare’s hip pain specialists in New Jersey are experts at diagnosing and addressing your discomfort using a variety of treatments. Call for an appointment today.

Hip pain can make your life miserable. Your Redefine Healthcare hip pain doctor in NJ specializes in finding a solution, whether your pain occurs while you’re standing, sitting, or trying to sleep. Knowing the exact location of your pain in the hips helps your doctor determine the underlying cause and tailor an effective treatment.

Because hip pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including both traumatic injuries and painful diseases, you should seek treatment as soon as possible.

Untreated hip pain may cause you to be unable to walk, run, or twist your upper body. Consult a hip pain specialist at our NJ pain clinic to learn how to protect these strong, load-bearing joints and remain mobile.

Types of Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, including arthritis, fractures, dislocations, sprains, hernias, and sciatica. In general, hip pain falls into one of three categories:

• Hip flexor pain. This pain is most commonly felt on the outside of your hip, along your upper thigh, or along your buttocks. These symptoms point to a soft tissue injury or condition, such as a problem with your muscles, ligaments, or tendons. This type of discomfort can be caused by Hip injuries, such as hip tendonitis
• Hip joint pain. This type of pain is usually more intense. It primarily affects the inside of your hip and the area around your groin. The pain is caused by a band of cartilage-like tissue that rims the outer portion of your hip socket, which deteriorates as a result of aging and arthritis. It is known as the hip labrum because it supports and deepens the socket. A labral tear is caused by an injury or overuse.
• Referred hip pain. When other areas of your body are compromised, the paths of your body’s nerves can cause hip pain. Hip pain, which your doctor would diagnose as referred pain, can result from diseases such as cancer or diabetes, as well as conditions such as low back pain, a pinched nerve or a herniated disc in your spine.

Symptoms of Hip Pain
Hip pain may appear in several less severe ways, including:

• As a dull ache that strengthens or burns with movement or pressure;
• The discomfort that eases with certain positions, like standing, but becomes worse in others, like lying on your side;
• Tightness in muscles that is aggravated by excessive activity or repetitive motions but relieved through gentle exercise like walking.

If rest, over-the-counter pain relievers, and ice or heat don’t help your hip pain, visit our New Jersey hip pain specialists at Redefine Healthcare for treatment. A list of problems could be causing your hip pain, so be as open and honest with your doctor as possible regarding your symptoms. Seek emergency medical care if the pain becomes severe and is accompanied by swelling, fever, chills, joint deformity, or an inability to stand or move your leg.
