Hip tendonitis is a common orthopedic condition characterized by inflammation or irritation of the tendons surrounding the hip joint. These tendons, including the iliotibial band, gluteal tendons, and hip flexor tendons, can become inflamed due to overuse, muscle imbalances, or repetitive motions. This can lead to hip pain and discomfort, making it hard to engage in regular activities.
Common Symptoms of Hip Tendonitis:
- Hip pain or discomfort
- Pain that worsens with movement
- Stiffness in the hip joint
- Tenderness around the hip
- Limited range of motion
- Difficulty walking or climbing stairs
- Swelling or inflammation in the hip area
Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition characterized by the gradual breakdown of the protective cartilage in the hip joint. As the cartilage deteriorates, bones may rub against each other, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Factors like age, genetics, and previous hip injuries can contribute to the development of hip osteoarthritis.
Treatment Options For Hip Pain
If you’re suffering from hip pain, Dr. Gelber will perform a thorough evaluation to understand the root cause and recommend bespoke treatments for your condition. Your treatment may include regenerative medicine techniques (PRP and stem cell injections) to stimulate natural healing, cortisone injections to reduce inflammation, viscosupplementation, and integrative medicine approaches, such as physical therapy and lifestyle modifications. Arthroscopic surgery is only considered when conservative methods fail to yield the desired results.
