Finding the exact reason for your chronic hip pain helps alleviate the symptoms so you can focus on healing your body. At Texas Pain Institute, we offer interventional pain management services for residents of Fort Worth, Denton, Southlake, and nearby areas of Texas who live with chronic hip pain.
What is Hip Pain?
Hip pain develops when there is an issue with the hip joint or nerves that run from the spine. Joint issues may stem from the degeneration of the cartilage, and most nerve conditions are related to inflammation. We offer therapies to reduce your pain while you undergo treatment from your primary or specialty physician.
Do I Have Hip Pain?
Hip pain may cause direct or referred pain, and the most common symptoms of chronic hip pain are:
- Stiffness or cramping in the hip
- Pain in the lower back or buttocks
- Leg pain that is typically isolated to the back of the thigh
- Groin discomfort that may appear as sharp, sudden pains or constant aches
These symptoms may occur in one or both hip, be constant or episodic, and may emerge with certain body movements.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Hip Pain?
The benefits of interventional pain management treatment for hip pain is that we find solutions to alleviate your pain. Often, patients are unable to follow a primary course of treatment (such as rest and physical therapy) due to the pain caused by the underlying medical condition, such as arthritis in the hip joint. Without the pain, they can complete the treatment that will heal the body.
How is Hip Pain Treated?
Our interventional pain management modalities for hip pain include:
- Pharmaceuticals and vitamin D testing and therapy
- Sacroiliac joint injections that are administered within the hip joint
- Nerve blocks to prevent pain signals from the location of nerve irritation to the brain
What Should I Expect After Treatment for Hip Pain?
The goal of our treatment plans is to provide you with relief from your chronic pain as quickly as possible. Some therapies contain medications that numb the nerves or that help reduce inflammation. Nerve blocks work by reducing or stopping the pain signals that are sent to the brain.
