Hip Pain Q & A

What causes hip pain? 

Hip pain may be caused by trauma or injury to the hip or diseases and conditions in other parts of your body. Common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Sprains
  • Hip fracture
  • Hip joint infection
  • Pinched nerves

Cancerous growths in the hip area is a less common cause of hip pain. If you experience pain in your groin area, inside or outside of your hip, or outer buttock, schedule an appointment with the doctors at Nassos to determine the cause and best course of treatment.

What are home treatment options for hip pain? 

You can often treat mild hip pain at home without a doctor. Before you schedule an appointment with Nassos, you might try the following at-home hip pain treatments: 

  • Apply ice for 20 minutes every two or three hours
  • Apply heat or take a warm bath to reduce pain 
  • Reduce activity to rest the hip
  • Avoid prolonged sitting
  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers 

If home treatment doesn’t relieve your hip pain, or your hip pain was triggered by a sudden fall, schedule an appointment with Nassos Orthopaedic Surgery for diagnosis and other treatment options. Nassos offers a wide variety of hip pain treatment options, including hip surgery if necessary.

What treatments are available for hip pain?

Sometimes treating hip pain at home is not enough. If you’ve tried to reduce hip pain at home to no avail, your doctor may suggest one of the following treatments:

  • Platelet-rich plasma injections
  • Joint injections
  • Stem cell treatment
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Hip surgery 
  • Hip joint replacement surgery

Nassos Orthopaedic Surgery relies on the Mako Robotic-Assisted Replacement technology for most total hip replacement surgeries.The robotic arm of this advanced technology positions the surgeon’s tools for improved accuracy during the procedure. The surgeon still performs the surgery, but the robots assist with pre-surgical planning using advanced 3-D imaging of your unique anatomy to ensure the implant is the correct size and ensures the proper positioning during the procedure.
