Milwaukee Hip Pain Treatment Center
Pain Relief Options for Hip Injuries
The hips form the largest ball-and-socket joint in the body, so it’s no surprise so many people experience injury and pain in this area. With the body depending on this region for support and balance, a hip injury can leave you feeling unable to enjoy life.
Trochanteric Bursitis Pain Relief Options
The greater trochanter is a lateral hip bone landmark where a number of gluteal and hip muscles attach. Tendon and bursitis irritation produces an overload syndrome that causes diffuse poorly localized pain. This can result from improper biomechanics, knee conditions, spine abnormalities and even foot dysfunction.
- Aching on the outside of the hip or thigh
- Worse pain with rotation of the hip, prolonged standing, walking, stairs and running
Confusingly, some hip conditions are mistaken for back problems due to the location of the pain. At Neurology and Pain Treatment in Milwaukee, we diagnose and treat patients with hip pain.
Other diseases that can mimic a hip bursitis include:
- Hip labral tear
- Avascular necrosis
- Femoral neck stress fracture
- Hip osteoarthritis
- Lumbar compression fractures
- Lumbar spine degenerative changes
- Lumbar radiculopathy
Trauma, arthritis, and tendinitis are among the top causes of hip pain.
Your problem will be evaluated by gathering information with a complete and detailed medical history followed by a focused physical examination. Diagnostic studies confirm your diagnosis. These specialized tests may include x-ray, CT, electrodiagnostic (EMG) studies, ultrasonography, or MRI. Treatment will depend on the source of pain. Options include different oral medications, physical therapies and targeted injections.
