Arthritis, osteoarthritis, continuous physical stress, and even bacterial or viral infections—hip pain may stem from a variety of causes but whatever is the reason, the condition is extremely painful. In fact, if hip pain treatment is not started right away, the condition has the potential to burgeon to debilitating proportions. We, at Global Pain & Spine Clinic, have a number of hip pain treatment methodologies that we administer to our patients, customized to their particular medical conditions.
The following are some of our most effective hip pain treatment methodologies:
- Physical Therapy: This forms the core of our hip pain treatment program and consists of the following routines—manual therapy using a range of soft tissue mobilization procedures, muscle toning exercises, ultrasound treatments, and application of heat to the affected area. A combination of these methods restores the flexibility in the afflicted region that may have been compromised as a result of being immobilized by a cast or after a prolonged period of being inactive; increases strength; alleviates pain; and reduces inflammation.
- Acupuncture: This is a pain management method that dates back to centuries and involves inserting fine needles at particular points in the body to trigger the self-healing mechanism. We prescribe acupuncture therapy along with cold laser therapy or electrical stimulation to achieve the most effective and quick result.
- Chiropractic Care: Our experienced and trained chiropractors administer treatments that relax the stiff and sore muscles in your hip area and employ gentle tissue mobilization and manipulation techniques to bring back the flexibility in this region. Administered along with ultrasound treatments, chiropractic care is one of the most effective hip pain treatment methods.
- Medications and Injections: Apart from the above-mentioned methods of hip pain treatment, physicians at our clinic may also prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and/or cortisone injections to treat your condition. Hip pain that has been caused by a condition called hip bursitis may be relieved with bursa injections.
