The hip joint is made up of the large bone of the upper leg, called the “femur,” and the pelvic bone, or “ilium.” Hip pain can develop for a variety of reasons. The most common causes of hip pain include joint and muscle stiffness and imbalance, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), bursitis, arthritis, and nerve irritation. A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurologic testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. Possible treatment options may include joint manipulation, physical therapy techniques such as ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, acupuncture, and therapeutic exercises to rehabilitate the joint and affected muscles. If after examination we conclude that your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a prompt referral will be made.
