Hip Pain Q & A

Why do I have hip pain?

You may have hip pain because of an injury or disease in the bones that form the hip joint. Or you could develop hip pain when you pull or damage the ligaments supporting the joint. Sometimes, hip pain arises from problems outside your hip. For example, lower spine problems may cause pain in your hip.

Some of the most common causes include:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Dislocation
  • Labral tears
  • Hamstring tears
  • Cartilage disorders
  • Overuse injuries (sprains and strains)
  • Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI)
  • Buttocks muscle injuries

Your buttocks muscles move your hips and provide stability when walking or moving. As a result, injuries to these muscles often lead to hip pain.

What other symptoms might I have with hip pain?

The underlying problems responsible for your hip pain may cause other symptoms, including:

  • Joint stiffness
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Limited hip movement
  • Gait abnormalities
  • Hip weakness
  • Lower back pain
  • Difficulty moving your leg
  • Limping (unable to put weight on the hip)
  • Grinding or clicking sensations in the joint


Your pain may worsen when you’re active or lie on the affected side.

How is my hip pain treated?

A few hip problems may need surgical repair. For example, a hip fracture typically requires surgery, and if you have substantial joint damage due to arthritis, you may need hip replacement surgery.

When you don’t need prompt surgery, your Revive Spine and Pain Center provider begins your hip treatment using conservative options, such as anti-inflammatory medications, temporarily using an assistive device (like a cane or walker), and starting physical therapy to rehabilitate the joint.

If your pain doesn’t improve, or you have severe or long-lasting pain when you first meet with your provider, they recommend complementary, interventional, and/or restorative therapies.

Your treatment plan may include one or more of the following:

  • Acupuncture
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Nerve blocks
  • Steroid injections
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Sacroiliac fusion
  • Sacroiliac joint injection
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC)
