What Causes Hip Pain?
Hip pain is a problem that can affect both older adults and younger individuals. In younger people, hip pain often occurs due to injuries to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the hip joint. This can happen during sports activities, car accidents, or even during everyday tasks. It’s important to address these injuries because if they are left untreated, they can make the hip joint unstable and more susceptible to further damage.
In older adults, hip pain is often caused by a condition called hip arthritis. This is a degenerative condition that affects the hip joint over time. In hip arthritis, the ligaments and tendons that support the joint become loose and weak, leading to instability. This instability causes the cartilage in the hip joint to degenerate, resulting in pain and discomfort. To compensate for this instability, the body may develop bone spurs around the joint in an attempt to provide stability.
Chronic hip pain, whether from injuries or arthritis, can also affect the movement of other areas in the body. This includes the spine, pelvis, and knee. Abnormal movement in these areas can lead to additional chronic pain and discomfort.

Understanding your hip pain treatment and diagnosis
Pain originating from the hip joint is often felt in the groin area, especially during walking and standing activities. Everyday movements like getting into a car or standing up from a seated position can exacerbate hip pain. Additionally, pain caused by hip tendons or bursitis is typically experienced on the outer hip, and it tends to worsen with walking or when lying on that side. It’s important to note that hip pain can also radiate down to the low back, thigh, knee, or leg, making it crucial to accurately diagnose the underlying cause.
When you visit a hip specialist at Integrative Rehab Medicine, they will conduct a comprehensive history and physical examination to pinpoint the source of your hip pain. This thorough evaluation allows us to understand your symptoms, identify potential risk factors, and assess the range of motion and stability of your hip joint. In many cases, simple imaging techniques such as X-rays and ultrasound scans are employed to gather further insights during the examination process. These imaging modalities can provide valuable information about the condition of the bones, joints, and soft tissues in and around the hip.
Once a diagnosis is established, our dedicated team will work with you to create a personalized hip pain treatment plan. We understand that every individual is unique, and our goal is to tailor the treatment approach to your specific needs. Depending on the underlying cause and severity of your hip pain, various treatment options may be recommended. Treatment options may include things like physical therapy, 1 on 1, with a licensed physical therapist to help strengthen the muscles and improve stability, supplements to improve joint health and decrease inflammation, and more advanced interventions like regenerative injections with platelet rich plasma PRP to target the source of the pain and promote healing. These treatments can help reduce inflammation, stimulate tissue regeneration, and provide long-term relief for hip pain.

Are You a Candidate for Non-surgical Hip Pain Treatment?
Recently I had iliac artery surgery (PAD) for pain which I have had for several years. I feel better than I have felt in a long time and am able to walk without pain. He and his associates continue to work with me in physical therapy. I would highly recommend this group.
Dr. Sebastian and his staff couldn’t have been more professional or caring. I was in pain for a long time without relief from an orthopedic doctor. From my first visit with Dr.Sebastian I knew I was in good hands. He took the time to explain the issue and his plan for treatment. I am pain free !!! I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Sebastian and his team.
Dr. Sebastian is truly one of the most caring, compassionate, and professional doctors I have ever met. I have damage to the cervical spine and he not only treats the physical problems but teaches you how to cope with the pain. He has provided me books to read, shows to watch, and meditation material. I wish all doctors took the time to care the way he does
