Hip Pain Surgery at SPINE/RX
What Is Hip Pain?
Hip pain can be caused by problems with the hip joint or the lower spine. A thorough physical examination and diagnostic imaging can help determine the true source of the pain. Only then can the appropriate treatment be prescribed. If you have hip pain, the possibility that it is coming from your spine – and not your hip joint – should be considered.
How Is Hip Pain Treated?
Hip pain that is the result of a spinal condition is most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Hip Pain?
Surgery may be recommended for hip pain of spinal origin if it does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if you’re experiencing any of the following serious symptoms: severe pain at night, limited mobility of the legs, or inability to bear weight on the hips and lower back. Surgery may also be recommended if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with hip pain can be disabling, and may cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve hip pain, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
