Hip pain is a very common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.
Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint. Sometimes hip pain can also be the result of a low back injury.
If your hip pain symptoms gradually worsen over time, prevents you from bearing weight, interfere with your daily activities, travel down your legs, or keep you from walking well, it is time to be evaluated by a medical expert.
At Interventional Pain and Spine, our goal is to identify the underlying cause of your hip pain and create a customized treatment plan to help treat the root of the problem and not just mask symptoms with pain medications.
