Hip pain can be an excruciating and debilitating condition. Some people have suffered from hip pain for many years and have not been able to find relief in spite of numerous doctor visits and treatments.
Hip pain diagnosis comes in many forms, but over the past 10 years, there has been a significant evolution in the treatment of hip pain from cartilage, bone, and soft tissue injuries. These structures can be torn over years of wear and tear or even by an acute injury. These conditions are seen in all age groups.
In years past, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, and cortisone injection have been used to treat these causes of hip pain. If these treatments were not effective, some patients were offered a hip replacement. Many of these patients did not have significant arthritic symptoms but had no other significant alternative to help relieve their pain.
Fortunately, with recent advances in technology, a new procedure, hip arthroscopy, has allowed orthopedic surgeons to evaluate and treat labrum tears, cartilage injuries, and early hip arthritic changes.
