Hip Pain Q & A

What does hip pain feel like?

Hip pain can come in many different forms and can range from mild to severe and debilitating. At Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness, the team evaluates your hip pain and any other symptoms in order to find out what’s causing it. Your hip pain might come with:

  • Limping
  • Swelling around your hip
  • Pain in your groin
  • Warmth
  • Stiffness
  • Tenderness

Some hip pain is acute, or short-lived. This type often goes away with home care and rest if it isn’t too severe. Another type of hip pain is chronic, or long-lasting. This could be the result of an old injury or an underlying long-term condition. In any case, the team at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness finds the cause and forms an appropriate treatment plan for you.

What are some common causes of hip pain?

There are numerous potential causes of hip pain, many of which are easier to identify than others. For example, if you fell down the stairs and hurt your hip in the process, you know that you have some kind of injury in your hip region. 

Other causes require the help of a doctor to find. You might experience a gradual worsening of pain or discomfort in your hip until you can’t bear it any longer. After some investigation, the team at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness might find that your hip pain is linked to:

  • Arthritis 
  • Bone fracture
  • Bursitis
  • Muscle strain
  • Tumors
  • Infections (e.g., shingles, Lyme disease)

Treating the underlying cause of your hip pain usually eases the symptoms. However, if your pain is particularly severe or doesn’t go away with treatment for your condition, the team at Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness can provide treatments specifically for the pain.

What are my treatment options for hip pain?

The Jersey Integrative Health and Wellness team may implement one or more of these methods to treat the pain in your hip:

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT)

OMT is kind of like massage therapy. A trained provider manipulates, stretches, and puts pressure on your muscles to ease your discomfort.

Physical therapy

During physical therapy for hip pain, the team teaches you exercises to strengthen the muscles in the region and improve your flexibility.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Eastern treatment that involves many fine needles inserted in your skin near pressure points. It is said to help restore bodily balance and alleviate different types of pain.

Joint injections

Injections of cortisone (steroid) directly into your hip can help relieve inflammation and associated pain.
