Hip Pain Treatment
in Chennai

The hip is one of the most important joints in the body. A healthy hip can support your weight and allow you to move without pain. Unfortunately, the hip undergoes a great amount of wear and tear through our lives as we walk, run, sit and stand. Disease or injury causing hip pain will significantly affect your gait and place abnormal stress on joints above and below the hip. This debilitating hip pain can make you immobile.

What is Hip Joint?

The hip joint is one of the largest joints in the body and is a major weight-bearing joint. It is a ball- and-socket type of joint and is formed where the thigh bone (femur) meets the pelvis. The femur has a ball-shaped head on its end that fits into a socket formed in the pelvis, called the acetabulum.

Large ligaments, tendons, and muscles around the hip joint hold the bones (ball and socket) in place and prevents from dislocating.

This joint is covered by a smooth soft cushion, cartilage & synovial fluid – both are very slippery in combination, which permits the smooth movement of the bones against each other, without any pain.

The hip joint transfers the weight between the upper and lower parts of the body and allows movement in the many planes.

What are the Causes of Hip Pain?

Many conditions can cause hip pain including injury & failed hip replacement surgery. Some common hip pain causes can include:

  • Osteoarthritis: is the most common cause. It can affect people of all ages, but older people are more likely to have the condition. Aging causes wear & tear of the joint leading to damage of the cartilage & causing pain. injury & obesity are some of the risk factors.
  • Other forms of arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis
  • Overuse: Dancers, gymnasts and other athletes who move their hips in all directions are more likely to injure their hips, especially from overuse
  • Hip fractures / injuries: older people are more likely to break a hip because bones become more fragile as we age.
  • Avascular necrosis: is a rare & painful condition, that causes the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. The patients experience pain in the groin, buttocks and upper thighs.
  • Bursitis: Bursa are fluid filled sacs, often found near joints. They help to reduce the friction between tendon and bone, ligament and bone, tendons and ligaments, and between muscles. There are as many as 20 bursas around the hip. Inflammation or infection of the bursa called bursitis.
  • Lastly, there are many conditions in and around the hip and even conditions of the spine, that can cause pain in the hip area.

What are the Symptoms of Hip Arthritis?

The most common symptoms of patients with Hip arthritis include:

  • • Sharp Pain is felt in the groin area or buttocks and sometimes on the inside of the knee or thigh. It is not uncommon to mistakenly think the knee to be the source of the pain
  • Swelling
  • Chronic pain
  • Pain during vigorous activities
  • Joint stiffness, especially after periods of rest
  • The joint locks or sticks
  • Crunching sounds, or the feeling of bones rubbing against each other
  • Inability to walk, climb stairs, put socks and shoes on, etc.

How Diagnosis is made?

Since Hip pain can be caused by a various cause, not just hip per se, but also from the spine – a diagnosis of the underlying pain generator is a key to determine the most appropriate plan of care.

At EPIONE, a detailed clinical history of your condition and a comprehensive physical examination is done. Based on it, your doctor will advise you the following tests that aids in the diagnosis.

X-rays

X rays provides details of the bones & joint. They’re not as useful for looking at the soft tissues around the joint.

  • Ultrasound scan
    This scan provides details about the bones. Joint, soft tissues, muscles & ligament. it also helps in doing a dynamic scan too
  • MRI scans
    MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans provide details about what’s happening to the soft tissue, such as the muscles and tendons, inside your hip. They’re particularly helpful for diagnosing the painful condition like avascular necrosis.
  • CT scans
    A CT (computerised tomography) scan can often be very helpful to work out if the hip joint has an unusual shape. CT scans use x-rays to show sections or ‘slices’ of the hip, which a computer then puts together to form a 3D image of the hip.There are conditions where the socket of the hip can be very shallow, and a CT scan can show this.
  • Blood tests
    If your doctor suspects your pain is caused by an infection or rheumatoid arthritis, then appropriate blood tests will be advised.

How is it Treated?

Right treatment at right time is very important to reduce the joint pain, improve the mobility, & slow down the progression of the disease. Along with weight reduction and pain killer like NSAIDS, doctors at EPIONE offer you a variety of advanced & safe, non-surgical options, which will help you in avoiding the surgery. These are

  • Nerve Block
  • Platelet rich plasma therapy
  • Radiofrequency Ablation
  • Trigger Point Injections
  • Medical Management

How to Prevent or Reduce Hip Pain ?

It’s generally best to continue doing your routine day-to-day activities, but try not to overdo things. Do some simple modifications in your daily activities, so that you don’t hurt your hip.

  • Lose those extra pounds if you are obese.
  • Avoid sitting in low chairs as this bends the hip more and might increase your pain.
  • Avoid lifting heavy weights. When you’re shopping try using a trolley if it’s uncomfortable to carry a basket.
  • Lessen the strain on your hip at work by finding a comfortable sitting position. Your workplace might be able to provide a footrest, back support or other equipment to help you.
  • Avoid standing on one leg – for example, when you get into a car, sit on the side of the seat and swing both legs in rather than stepping in one leg at a time.
