Hip Pain Q & A

What are the signs of a hip injury?

In addition to pain in the front, side, or back of your hip, other signs of hip injuries include:

  • Stiffness in your hip joint
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Feeling that your leg may give out underneath you
  • Popping, cracking, or grinding in your hip
  • Pain in your buttocks, groin, or thigh
  • Numbness or tingling in your hip or thigh

Hip pain may also be made worse by lying on the affected hip, walking, or standing for long periods. If you’ve experienced trauma to your hip or have nagging hip pain that simply won’t go away, see the team at Ortho One Jacksonville for an exam and treatment immediately.

What conditions cause hip pain?

Different types of trauma and anatomical changes can cause hip pain. Common conditions that affect the hip include:

  • Groin pulls
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bursitis
  • Iliotibial (IT) band tendinitis
  • Labral tears
  • Arthritis
  • Perthes disease
  • Fractures

While some hip conditions occur following direct trauma to the hip, such as a car accident, other hip injuries can occur throughout the course of a normal day while you’re working, exercising, or even stepping off a curb.

How is hip pain diagnosed?

The Ortho One team diagnoses hip pain after a comprehensive consultation and exam. They ask about your symptoms and any potential factors that may have contributed to your injury, like tripping at work or chronic wear and tear from repetitive hip bending.

Your provider also examines your hip, applying pressure around the joint and its surrounding muscles, then moving it through a range of motion. Your provider also looks for signs of stiffness, popping, and clicking in your hip.

In some cases, the team may refer you for X-rays or an MRI of your hip. Once the team examines your results and any imaging findings, they explain your diagnosis and outline a treatment plan to help you recover.

How is hip pain treated?

Hip pain treatment varies depending on your diagnosis. The team offers a range of treatments, including conservative pain management strategies to surgical intervention. Treatment options include:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications
  • Hot or cold therapy
  • Rest
  • Physical therapy
  • Work restrictions or modifications
  • Prescription pain medications
  • Joint injections
  • Joint replacement

The team may start with conservative measures and rest for a period of several weeks before suggesting any other types of treatments. Severe cases, especially those involving fractures and joint instability, may require immediate surgical repair.
