Hip pain can be incredibly debilitating. Whether you’re sitting down or on your feet, the hip is involved in virtually all lumbar movement. Pain felt during these voluntary motions could indicate an issue with the ligaments, tendons or other soft tissue that surrounds your hip joint. While there are therapeutic and non-surgical solutions for your hip pain, IBJI understands that not every patient will be able to use assistive devices such as braces, canes or other supports. IBJI hip specialists work to ensure our patients receive specific treatment so they can achieve acceptable physical strength, mobility and confidence.
One of the common reasons behind sharp hip pain is bursitis. The extra stress between the bone and soft tissue is directly attributed to sudden hip pain. If you experience any level of hip pain with or without injury, you may want to start making changes around your lifestyle. Since we walk with our feet, all of the movement and weight is translated to the hips. To combat this, avoid activities that worsen your symptoms and wear shoes utilizing IBJI prescribed custom-made orthotic inserts. These are great options for hip pain treatment and further stabilizing your pelvis. Please contact us at any of our Illinois locations and let our physicians find the method that best fits your hip situation.
