At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, hip pain is one of the most common complaints we hear about from our patients. Hip pain can affect a person's ability to work and can even cause them to become incapacitated. Whether you are suffering from minor pain or a fractured hip, our knowledgeable staff will work to determine the cause of your injury and the best possible course of treatment for you.

Common Causes and Possible Complications

The most common cause of hip pain is osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease. Hip pain can also be the result of trauma, sports injuries, or overuse. Spinal problems may also cause hip pain. The resulting injuries can vary and may include torn cartilage (labral tears), fractures, muscle tears, bursitis, and snapping hip syndrome (also called psoas impingement). Decreased blood flow to the bone may cause osteonecrosis. In some injuries, pieces of bone or cartilage may shear off and remain loose in the hip socket (a condition called loose bodies). And while broken hips are commonly associated with the elderly, they can also occur in younger patients, particularly in cases involving traumatic injury.


Treatment Options

When you visit Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, our physicians will perform a comprehensive evaluation. Finding an accurate diagnosis for your problem is essential for evaluating the best treatment options. For patients who have suffered a hip fracture, hip replacement surgery can mean a relatively quick return to mobility. For patients with less serious injuries, nonsurgical options such as physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, and injections can sometimes extend the range of motion and manage the condition. In any case, it's vitally important to speak with a qualified physician and listen closely to his or her advice.


Advanced Diagnostic Equipment

We use cutting-edge equipment to help diagnose and treat your hip pain. With an on-site MRI machine and equipment for digital x-rays, we can improve both the speed and accuracy of your diagnosis. For pain and other sensory issues, we can even conduct an electromyogram (EMG) and nerve conduction study (NCS). To set up your initial consultation, contact Sarasota Orthopedic Associates today at (941) 951-BONE (2663). You can even fill out your new patient paperwork online!
