Hip Pain Q & A

What Causes Hip Pain?

While the pain in your hip may be commonly occurring, the potential causes are varied, so there’s no one-size-fits-all way to treat it. You may feel pain in one or both hips if you have a problem with your joints, spine, or buttocks. Hip pain may also be the result of problems with your muscles, tendons, or ligaments.

Oftentimes hip pain may be a symptom of an underlying disease or health condition that affects your lower back, but you feel the pain in your hips instead. Common causes of hip pain include:

  • Bursitis
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures or sprains
  • Sciatica
  • IT band syndrome
  • Muscle strains
  • Hematoma
  • Pinched nerves
  • Tendinitis
  • Dislocation

What are the Symptoms of Hip Pain?

You may experience pain on the outside or inside of your hip, depending on the underlying cause. Common symptoms of temporary or chronic hip pain include:

  • Loss of motion in your hip
  • Swelling or tenderness in the area
  • Difficulty sleeping or sitting
  • Pain in your groin, buttocks, or legs
  • Limping
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain that is worse after prolonged or repetitive activities
  • Radiating pain
  • Warmth over the hip area

How is Hip Pain Treated?

To treat your hip pain effectively, the doctors at Florida Pain Medicine conduct a comprehensive health exam to diagnose the underlying cause of your pain so they can create an individualized treatment plan. They specialize in interventional procedures meant to reduce your pain and help improve the quality of your life through pain management and rehabilitation.

In mild cases, ice and anti-inflammatory medications may help. In more severe or chronic conditions, steroid injections in which your doctor injects medication directly into your hip joint may effectively help manage the pain. Often, controlling inflammation in your hip joint is one of the keys to relieving pain, and steroid injections can do that.

Other interventional treatments for your hip pain may include:

  • Fluoroscopic Guided Epidural injections
  • Facet injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Spinal cord stimulation

Many times, it isn’t just one treatment that relieves your hip pain, but a combination of therapies. The doctors at Florida Pain Medicine find the best set of solutions to effectively manage your hip pain and treat both the underlying causes as well as your symptoms.
