Exploring The Treatment Options for Hip Pain!!

When considering hip pain treatment, it would be greatly wrong if you go for the surgical method without knowing how much critical your condition is and what other options can be followed. Probably, the pain that you considering a very severe one may resolve by resting, modifying your routine a little bit or opting some light treatment options. Non-surgical treatments should be the first and foremost option that being completely safe can give you hip pain relief to a greater extent.

Anti-Inflammatories

The anti-inflammatories also known as non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs help in treating the mild, moderate or even severe pain associated with inflammation of the affected area. The inflammation can be as a result of injuries because of some accident or because of muscular tears, bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, labral tears, synovitis etc.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is the option that should be approached in order to comprehend the right reason behind chronic hip pain. Surrounded by almost 30 muscles, the physical therapy for hip joint will help strengthen muscles, increase the flexibility and help in maintaining the proper movement of the joint. This will all in all help reduce the inflammation. Adding to this, the proper muscular training will therefore decrease the chances of surgery.

Injections

The use of injections is typically for the purpose of not only relieving hip pain but also diagnosing the cause behind it. Below elaborated are types of injections that help in easing the pain and exploring the cause behind it:

Psoas Injection

Performed under an ultrasound, these injections are carried out when the diagnosis is considered to be symptomatic psoas tendon, which is located outside of the hip joint. Moreover, there are cases in which the diagnosis is difficult to make because the psoas tendon which has become painful can land the patient into the compression or the tears of labrum.

Intra-articular Injections

A cortisone injection, directly applied in the area of the hip joint can help give the hip pain relief. The injections performed under proper ultrasound with highly resonated ultrasound equipment will target the exact area of hip pain thus providing pain relief.

Trochanteric Bursa Injection

Patients suffering from bursitis which is on the outside of the hip are the best candidates of Trochanteric Bursa Injections. These are said to be the patients who have not found hip pain relief from neither physical therapy nor any anti-inflammatory medications.
