What is Hip Pain?

The hip joint is one of the largest joints in the body, and they connect the lower extremities to the pelvis. Hip pain is a condition that includes any pain felt in or around the hip joint. It is possible for hip pain to be felt in the groin, thigh, leg, or even radiating towards the knee. Greater Austin Pain Center will do all that is necessary to find what’s causing your hip pain and relieve the discomfort.

How does Hip Pain affect the body?

The hip’s distinctive anatomy allows it to be strong and flexible, with the purpose of bearing weight and enabling a wide range of movement. The hip joint is used for hip flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, and rotation. Hip pain can negatively impact the body, mobility, and a person’s ability to perform simple everyday activities such as walking. This condition can also lead to pain in the thigh or leg. This could cause you to limp, which in turn causes strain to other areas of the body.

Treatment For Hip Pain in Austin, Texas

Treatment for hip pain varies depending on the severity and cause of the discomfort. Mild injuries to muscles, tendons or bursal sacs can often improve following the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). Hip pain due to arthritis can be treated with medication, injections, and physical therapy. At Greater Austin Pain Center, we offer X-Ray guided intra-articular steroid injections as an option to help relieve hip pain as well as peripheral nerve stimulation.
