Hip pain has a variety of causes that involve the joint, connective tissue, muscles, and bones. These causes include:
Dr. Mader diagnoses hip pain with a thorough evaluation. He tests your range of motion, muscle strength, and the nerve function of the involved hip.
You may need further testing, like an X-ray or MRI, to identify pain within the joint or determine the extent of arthritis. Some types of arthritis require a blood test to check for inflammation that causes pain in multiple joints.
In suspected cases of cancer, Dr. Mader provides appropriate referrals for further testing and treatment.
Hip pain is treated in various ways depending on the cause, and Dr. Mader only uses evidence-based modalities.
Conservative care includes exercise-based physical therapy to improve flexibility and strength and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Dr. Mader may recommend more in-depth treatment, like corticosteroid injections or bursa injections for certain conditions.
Dr. Mader performs injections guided by fluoroscopy, a type of X-ray that ensures the injections are administered with pinpoint accuracy.
Depending on the location of your pain and diagnosis, your pain may resolve within weeks or take longer. Dr. Mader provides thorough explanations of all treatment options with a timeline, so you know what to expect.
