Hip Pain Q & A
What causes hip pain?
Hip pain arises from many possible causes, including arthritis, infection, bursitis, and damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It’s often a challenge to diagnose because you can have a problem in your hip but feel the pain in your thigh, groin, or buttocks instead of the hip.
The reverse is also true. You could have a problem elsewhere in your body that causes pain in the hip. For example, sciatica and other health conditions in your back, such as spinal degeneration and facet joint sprain, can lead to hip pain.

The proper treatment depends on the cause of your hip pain and the specific location of the pain, so they use diagnostic tests and imaging to target the cause, then they provide specialized treatments such as:
Medication is injected directly into the area that’s the source of your pain. The injections contain a combination of steroids and a local anesthetic so that you get immediate pain relief, as well as long-lasting results, as steroids reduce swelling and pain.
