The hip joint is a complex region of the body that is tasked with supporting 50% of your body weight. Suffering a hip injury can quite literally throw you off balance. In order to avoid the pain, you might begin to favor your other leg, which can actually lead to more hip problems. Hip pain, similar to the other joints, is a signifier that the joint is being overworked or isn’t performing normally. You can experience pain in the form of a dull persistent ache or as a sharp disabling pain.

What Can Cause Hip Pain?
Hip pain can commonly be traced back to a wide range of possible conditions. It is also possible to mistake a hip injury for what is actually sciatic pain which can extend down the leg. But in this case, the majority of the following examples involve pain that is sourced in and around the hip joint.
Hip Bursitis: jelly-like sacs that are located throughout the body, including around the shoulder between bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions. Become irritated and inflamed.
Hip Labrum Tear: This connective tissue keeps the hip joint firmly in the socket, when torn you will feel pain as the joint makes contact with nerves. Chronic ache with joint stiffness
Hip Tendon Tear/ Tendonitis: Overuse or overly strenuous activity can cause the tendons to strain or eventually tear. Depending on the severity, your pain will increase as more damage is done
Hip Osteoarthritis: Caused by the degradation of the joint and surrounding cartilage, due to age. You might experience chronic aches or sudden sharp pain when executing specific movements.
Non-surgical Solutions For Hip Pain
Your hip pain can be effectively treated through non-surgical methods. It’s important to give hip injuries the opportunity to heal as they are such a prominent weight-bearing joint! You owe it to your good health to not only get rid of your hip pain but have the pain source eliminated or corrected so that it does not ‘flare-up’ intermittently.
Regenerative injection therapy is a cutting edge breakthrough treatment offered by Dr. Roshni Patel to treat Hip pain, injuries, and degradation of the joint.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP uses patients own growth factor to heal and regenerate the problem areas by improving blood supply and triggering a healing cascade to proliferate and remodel the tendons and ligament to heal chronic pain
- Post injection the patient will experience 1-2 weeks of inflammation which is our goal so the body can trigger the healing process.
- At 2-8 weeks the area undergoes proliferation, which is like saying ‘the construction has started’ where activated fibroblasts are recruited to begin the formation of new blood vessels and provisional matrix
- And beyond six weeks is the remodeling phase during which the type 3 collagen will be replaced with type 1 collagen, essentially restoring the tissue to healthy function.
Platelet-rich plasma injection therapy makes it possible to heal painful musculoskeletal pain and injuries using the patient’s own blood.
