Your Hip

Your Hip 

The average American walks between 3,000 or 4,000 steps each day, which equates to roughly 1.5 to 2 miles. Throughout a lifetime, these numbers quickly begin to add up. Your body’s weight-bearing joints, such as your hips, can be subjected to mass amounts of wear and tear due to this. Should these joints begin to give you problems, our team at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation is here to help. We provide treatment options for the common issues that can plague the hips, allowing our patients to stay upright and mobile.   

Hip Problems We Treat

A variety of different factors can cause hip issues. General wear and tear are typical, and there is usually little that can prevent it. Physical activities and trauma-inducing accidents can also be to blame for specific hip problems. Fortunately, no matter the cause, our orthopedists have the treatment options needed to improve your condition. Some of the most common hip issues our team will treat include:

  • Arthritis.
  • Degeneration of cartilage.
  • Hip fractures.
  • Bursitis.
  • Tendonitis.
  • Muscle or tendon strains.
  • Ligamentous issues.

When To See A Doctor

Sometimes, the human body experiences pain in and around the joints, which goes away on its own with rest. In situations like this, medical intervention is not necessary. However, patients need to understand when a severe hip problem occurs to avoid sustaining permanent damage to the joint. Below are a few examples that point to professional help being required for treatment:

  • Severe swelling in the area.
  • Constant clicking sounds or sensations when moving around.
  • Feelings of instability in the hip joint.
  • Debilitating pain.
  • Stiffness has led to immobility.
  • Symptoms have not improved with rest.

Medical Intervention Offered By Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation 

One sign of a high-quality medical practice is whether they can provide multiple treatment options for a particular area. When it comes to joint problems, our team does just that. We understand that various issues can take hold in the hip joint, meaning a one-size-fits-all approach is never taken for treatment. Our orthopedists have a variety of treatment options at their disposal, including the below:

  • Steroid injections.
  • PRP and stem cell therapy.
  • Prescribing a regimen of bed rest, anti-inflammatory medication, and pain relievers.
  • Hip replacement surgery.
  • Reconstructive surgeries.
  • Referring patients to complementary treatment practitioners such as physical therapists or chiropractors.
