Treatment for hip pain must be adjusted to what causes it: degenerative diseases, muscle problems and even infections can be responsible for this condition. Remember to go to a specialist if you have chronic or acute hip pain with no apparent explanation.
hip pain is not usually felt in the hip itself, but in the groin area. It usually increases when crossing the legs or changing position (standing up, lying down, etc.). It is important that you receive a proper diagnosis through a clinical interview and, if needed, perform imaging studies, as the origin of the pain may be diffuse and not obvious.
Most hip cases are caused by muscle problems or inflammation in the ligaments that provide strength and support to the bones that make up the hip. The treatment in this case will consist of conservative measures such as analgesics and exercises to recover normal mobility.
Osteoarthritis is a disease that wears down joint cartilage, which prevents bones from "bumping" into each other. This wear and tear is common in older people but can also occur in people around the age of 50. The treatment for this condition consists of pain management measures, therapy and rehabilitation and, in general, all available measures to improve the quality of life of the affected person.
In the event that the origin of the hip pain is one of these diseases, the underlying cause must be addressed while managing the symptoms for a successful recovery. This may require the collaboration of several specialists in different areas, so it is important that you see a doctor as soon as possible.
