Hip Pain

The hip joint is made up of the large bone of the upper leg, called the "femur," and the pelvic bone, or "ilium." Hip pain can develop for a variety of reasons. The most common causes of hip pain include joint and muscle stiffness and imbalance, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), bursitis, arthritis, and nerve irritation. A thorough examination including orthopedic and neurologic testing and X-ray or MRI studies, if necessary, will help to determine your exact diagnosis and individualized treatment plan. Possible treatment options may include joint manipulation, physiotherapeutic procedures such as ultrasound or electrical stimulation therapy, acupuncture, and therapeutic exercises
to rehabilitate the affected muscles. If after examination we conclude that your case cannot be helped with conservative care, a prompt referral will be made.
