Nonsurgical Solutions for Hip Pain

If you have hip pain, you’re not alone; hip pain is a common problem, especially as you age. Over 30 million American adults suffer from osteoarthritis alone, which is a common cause of hip pain, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Like most forms of pain, hip pain ranges from mild to severe and can be the result of a number of factors ranging from an injury or medical condition to lifestyle factors like obesity. 

If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from hip problems, we can help. Here at New Hampshire Regenerative Center, our team of specialists offers several therapeutic and nonsurgical options at our office in Manchester to help relieve your hip pain and other symptoms affecting your mobility. 

Common causes of hip pain

The hip is the largest joint in your body and consists of a ball and socket structure that allows flexibility and a wide range of motion so that you can walk, sit and stand, run, jump, and rotate your leg and hip at various angles. In addition to a number of bones, the joint also consists of a complex network of soft tissue that protects the joint and allows fluid movement. 

In addition to bearing your body weight, the hip joint is subject to ongoing movement and wear-and-tear that can increase the risk of injuries like strains or tears, inflammation, tissue degeneration, and pain over time. Certain factors — like being obese or extremely overweight, suffering trauma, or engaging in certain types of physical activity — can increase the risk of developing hip problems, but anyone can develop hip pain at any time. 

Some of the most common causes of hip pain include:

If you develop pain or stiffness that doesn’t get better with rest or over-the-counter pain medication, schedule an appointment to see a hip specialist as soon as possible. If you develop pain after an accident or trauma, can’t move your leg, or are also showing signs of infection, seek emergency medical treatment right away.
