The hip joint is the largest in the body, susceptible to wear and tear. Like all joints, the hip can be affected by arthritis and degenerative disease, causing pain and limiting mobility. While hip arthritis cannot be cured, you can slow the progression and manage hip pain. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic offers hip pain and arthritis treatment at our clinic in Covington, GA.
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of hip pain. Arthritis, inflammation and deterioration of the joints may impact both the sacroiliac (SI) and hip joints, resulting in chronic hip pain. The hip and SI joints can suffer from loss of cartilage, resulting in friction that causes inflammation and pain with movement. Patients with hip joint arthritis can experience limited range of motion, grinding, popping and stiffness, reducing overall mobility. SI joint arthritis causes hip and back pain, as well as sciatica symptoms.
Managing Hip Osteoarthritis Pain
Osteoarthritis in the hip can cause chronic pain, especially in elderly patients. Minimally or non-invasive hip pain and arthritis treatment helps reduce inflammation and improve mobility, without the risk of invasive hip surgery. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic can explore conservative treatment options to address chronic hip pain. Some options include:
- SI joint injections
- Hip joint steroid injections
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Physical therapy
- Sacroiliac joint therapies – sacroplasty or sacroiliac joint fusion
