Hip Pain Treatment
Enormous stress is placed on the hip joints, lower back and pelvic area, resulting in injuries and degenerative conditions. Hip pain can be caused by a variety of issues, both in the hip and in the surrounding area. If standing, sitting or walking results in hip pain, treatment is available. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer hip pain treatment at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
Common Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can be caused by a localized issue in the hip joint or radiates from SI joints or the lumbar spine. The sciatic nerves are the largest and longest nerves in the body and travel through the pelvis. Any pressure or impingement of these nerves in the lumbar spine or from inflammation in the SI joints or piriformis muscle can cause radiating nerve pain in the hips. Treatment for this type of hip pain requires resolving the sciatic nerve pressure and identifying the source of inflammation or nerve pressure.
The hip joint is the most common source of localized hip pain. Like all joints, hip joints are susceptible to arthritis and degenerative conditions. Injuries and aging can result in wear and tear on the hip joint, causing inflammation and cartilage loss. This can cause hip pain, stiffness and weakness, impacting mobility and quality of life. Hip pain treatment for arthritis and other degenerative conditions can include injection therapies and spinal cord stimulation that minimizes pain and improves mobility.
