Hip pain is an umbrella term, which encompasses a variety of conditions which all cause pain around the hip. These range from soft tissue conditions such as trochanteric bursitis, hip tendonitis and labral tears to bony conditions such as femoro-acetabular impingement and hip osteoarthritis.
Symptoms of Hip Pain
Pain can be felt either over the front of the hip or on the outside of the hip. The pain may be felt only with certain movements or all the time. Associated symptoms could be stiffness of the hip or painful clicking.
Treatments for Hip Pain
The treatment is aimed at the underlying cause. Assessment would include a consultation with one of our experts with a physical examination aimed at getting a working diagnosis of the possible causes. The definitive diagnosis often requires further investigations such as x-rays, ultrasound or MRI scan. Once the diagnosis is established, a definitive treatment plan would be discussed and the treatments could range from physiotherapy, to injections or possibly surgery.
