Treating Hip Pain Due to a Wide Range of Causes

Whether you’re experiencing mild to moderate discomfort daily or have had a hip replacement, our expert staff can help you improve your quality of life.

Chronic hip pain varies from person to person and can occur due to several different issues, the most common of which are listed below.


One of the main culprits for hip pain is arthritic changes in the hip joint. This can cause excruciating pain that may not be relieved by rest and over-the-counter pain medications.

Cartilage Tears

This type of injury can occur in individuals who repeatedly exhibit twisting motions, or due to traumatic movement.


The hip bursa helps to ease friction caused by muscle fibers rubbing against one another. When they are overused, they can become inflamed. Injections are often used to treat bursitis along with rest and physical therapy.

Some of the conditions above may require surgical intervention, but many can be treated more conservatively. Whether you need surgery or not, our expert physicians and staff can help ease your discomfort with the help of treatment options such as injections and physical therapy referrals, as well as conservative and sparing medication management.
