WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF HIP PAIN?
Hip pain is an extremely common musculoskeletal problem we see at our Birmingham and Warwickshire clinics, and can be due to many different reasons, from arthritis to bursitis or tendinitis. Hip pain can be due to an acute injury or often caused by overuse or degenerative changes. Hip injuries can often be related to sport and exercise. Whereas, age-related degenerative changes are often related to progressive wear and degradation of the joint cartilage. When muscles, tendons and ligaments become repetitively overworked or overstretched they can be subject to micro-trauma and irritation. Over a period of time, repeated irritation of the hip joint and the surrounding soft tissues can consequently lead to inflammation and pain, making everyday activities very difficult.
COMMON TYPES OF HIP PAIN & INJURY
COMMON CAUSES OF HIP PAIN
HIP PAIN TREATMENT
Conservative treatment for hip pain - Osteopathy, physiotherapy & rehabilitation
Stretching - stretching and massage of the local muscles can help to take some of the pressure off the irritated tissues
Rest - patients are advised to reduce activities that put stress on the joint and tendons like running or repetitive activities
Manipulation - breaking down scar tissue and joint manipulations
Strengthening - appropriate strengthening and dynamic stability exercises
HIP INJECTION TREATMENT
Due to modern living, sometimes hip injuries can turn in to chronic pain issues. If this is the case then other modes of treatment are also available. Injection therapy for hip pain and injury is also commonly used to treat the stubborn condition and can deliver good success in many cases. Injection therapies often involve steroid injections and/or platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Injection therapy is a safe and effective way to treat hip pain and injury. Our experienced clinical team at our Birmingham and Warwickshire clinics use precise techniques to inject medication or biological concentrate directly into the affected area, with the aim of reducing inflammation, stimulating recovery and providing long-term relief. Our injection therapy services can help you manage your hip pain and get back to living life pain-free.
Cortisone injections (steroid injection)
Hip pain suffers who have not responded well to conservative treatments may be advised to have a cortisone injection to reduce inflammation and pain. The factors to consider if one is thinking about having a steroid injection is that often (if successful) steroid injections for pain can be short-lived and may have an overall degenerative effect on the local tissue if repeated. Although they can be good for inflammation, cortisone injections are not used for loading tendons due to weakening tissue, putting it at an increased risk for rupture (tear), if repeated too often.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections
Becoming increasing more popular, platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a natural treatment commonly used in musculoskeletal practice and sports medicine that uses platelets from the patient’s blood to promote and facilitate healing in damaged tissue. Increased data from evidence-based clinical studies are increasingly showing that PRP injections are not only safe and effective for the treatment of hip pain and injury, but also have improved benefits over cortisone, particularly for long term progress.
