The hip is an extremely flexible weight-bearing joint that is critical to our body’s mobility and stability. Unfortunately, conditions affecting the hip joint are a common orthopedic complaint. When painful hip conditions make daily activities like walking, climbing stairs, or just bending to tie a shoe an impossible task, it’s time to see a specialist.
Some hip issues can be remedied with home exercises, weight loss, medications, and rest. Other, more severe conditions might require surgical intervention to regain normal hip function. Whether your hip pain is the result of a traumatic injury, repetitive overuse, or a degenerative disease, SportsMED can help.
Some of the most common hip conditions we treat include:
- Avascular necrosis
- Cartilage damage
- Fractures and dislocations
- Hip impingement
- Labral tears
- Sprains and strains
