Hip Pain Treatment
While the hip joint is not as prone to injury or other issues as more complex joints, there are still a number of common hip injuries that athletes and active individuals experience. We rely on our hips frequently for many regular activities like walking, and they are designed to tolerate repeated motion. However, issues can still develop as a result of ongoing wear and tear. With expert care from the orthopedic team at MetroWest Physician Services, we can provide diagnosis and hip pain treatment in Framingham, Massachusetts that gets you back to your active lifestyle.
Hip pain can be caused by a number of things, including a fall or other injury, osteoarthritis, muscle strains, tendon strains, tendonitis, or bursitis. Symptoms of a hip injury may include limping, reduced movement in the hip joint, muscle stiffness, discomfort in the thigh, hip joint, groin, or buttocks, an inability to put weight on the hip or leg, or pain that is intense and comes on suddenly. If you are experiencing symptoms of a hip injury, it is important to seek medical care as soon as possible to prevent the injury from worsening, and to prevent it from causing additional injuries.
When you are experiencing hip pain, the orthopedic specialists and surgeons at MetroWest Physician Services will provide you with a thorough examination to diagnose the cause, and create a plan for treatment. This may include at-home care, physical therapy, or surgery to repair or replace the hip joint. The sooner you see a specialist for your hip pain, the better your outcomes after treatment, and the less extensive your treatment may need to be!
