Hip Pain Q & A

What are the common causes of hip pain? 

There are a variety of causes of hip pain in patients ranging from young to old. One of the most common causes of hip pain is an injury sustained during sporting activities, such as: 

  • Baseball
  • Dancing
  • Acrobatics
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Gymnastics
  • Soccer
  • Yoga

You can injure your hip while playing a sport in several different ways. During physical activity, you can tear the inner lining of your hip, which is called the labrum. In some cases, through repeated microtraumas, you can damage the blood supply to your hip, a condition called avascular necrosis. 

Sometimes, a child may be born with a congenital hip problem that does not become painful until much later in life. Lifestyle practices, such as a sedentary workplace environment, can also contribute to chronic hip pain. 

When should I come in about my hip pain? 

Not all bouts of hip pain are created equal. If you’re dealing with occasional hip pain that goes away on its own, it doesn’t necessarily require treatment. 

However, if you’re dealing with chronic hip pain, or pain that recurs repeatedly and proves debilitating and disruptive, that’s concerning. You should probably have that type of chronic hip pain evaluated by the professionals at Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute. Also, if your hip pain occurs during prolonged activity or prolonged sitting, then it definitely needs to be assessed. 

How do you treat hip pain? 

The specific type of treatment plan you need depends on the severity and root cause of your hip pain. The team at Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute works closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that’ll deliver optimal results. 

The team offers patients a variety of advanced, comprehensive treatments, including: 

  • Expert physical therapy
  • Stem cell injections
  • Minimally invasive surgery (arthroscopy)
  • Hip-preserving surgery (femoral and periacetabular osteotomies)
  • Hip replacements

Weighing considerations, such as your medical condition, age, and overall health, your provider develops a treatment plan that best fits your needs and goals. Your rehabilitation takes place in a friendly setting that’s tailored to meet your specific recovery needs.
