Hip Pain

Injury Doctors NYC specializes in providing comprehensive care for individuals experiencing hip pain. Our dedicated team of medical professionals is committed to diagnosing the underlying cause of your discomfort and implementing personalized treatment plans to effectively alleviate your symptoms. Below, we outline the common causes, diagnosis, and treatment options for hip pain:

Common Causes of Hip Pain:

Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the hip joint, leading to pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion.

Hip Fractures: Fractures of the femoral neck, femoral head, or pelvic bones can result from trauma or weakened bones due to conditions like osteoporosis, causing severe pain and difficulty bearing weight on the affected hip.

Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint, often caused by repetitive movements, prolonged sitting, or trauma.

Tendonitis: Inflammation of the tendons surrounding the hip joint, such as the iliopsoas or gluteal tendons, typically due to overuse, muscle imbalances, or sudden increases in physical activity.

Hip Labral Tears: Tears or damage to the labrum, a ring of cartilage that lines the socket of the hip joint, can result from trauma, repetitive motions, or structural abnormalities, leading to hip pain, clicking, or locking.


When you visit Injury Doctors NYC for hip pain evaluation, our experienced physicians will conduct a thorough assessment, which may include:

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your symptoms, medical history, and any recent injuries or activities.

Physical Examination: Assessing the range of motion, strength, and stability of the hip joint, as well as identifying areas of tenderness or swelling.

Imaging Studies: Utilizing X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to visualize the bones, joints, and soft tissues of the hip, helping to identify structural abnormalities, fractures, or signs of arthritis.

Treatment Options:

Based on the diagnosis, our team will develop a tailored treatment plan designed to address your specific needs and goals. Treatment options may include:

Rest and Activity Modification: Temporarily avoiding activities that exacerbate hip pain and modifying movement patterns to reduce strain on the affected joint.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles surrounding the hip joint, improve flexibility, and enhance stability and mobility.

Medications: Prescribing pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, or corticosteroid injections to alleviate discomfort, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

Assistive Devices: Using supportive devices such as canes, walkers, or orthotic inserts to offload pressure from the hip joint and improve mobility.

Minimally Invasive Procedures: Performing procedures such as corticosteroid injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, or hip joint injections to target inflammation, alleviate pain, and facilitate tissue healing.

Surgery: In severe cases or when conservative treatments fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair damaged tissues, replace the hip joint, or address underlying structural abnormalities.

At Injury Doctors NYC, we are dedicated to helping you find relief from hip pain and regain your quality of life. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward a pain-free future.
