Hip pain is controllable with proper medical care
houston, tx (PRWEB) October 24, 2016
Advocate Pain Management Center, one of the most comprehensive pain management clinics in the great Houston area, is now treating hip pain. Many Americans experience hip pain, making it one of the most common types of pain. It is a very common condition, along with back pain, but it is treatable.
The hip is the body’s largest joint, designed to withstand repeated motion, sudden impact and general wear and tear. The ball-and-socket make-up of the hip joint fits together in a way that allows fluid movement, maintained by a layer of cartilage that keeps the bones from coming into direct contact with each other.
Some of the common causes of hip pain are aging, arthritis, bone fracture, trauma, a sudden or awkward movement and many others. In general, pain experienced on the inside of the hip and groin is caused by a problem within the hip joint itself. Pain experienced on the outside of the hip, upper thigh or buttock is caused by muscle, ligament, tendon or other soft tissue condtions.
Early diagnosis is very important to enable proper diagnosis and treatment. Use of X-rays, CT scans and MRI can all be used to diagnose this condition. Once properly diagnosed, treatments include physical therapy, reasonable narcotics and cortisone injections. These methods are very effective at avoiding costly and painful surgery.
