Hip Pain and Coldness Can Be Relieved
Hip pain is a common problem, and there are many causes. Arthritis is among the most frequent causes of hip pain. If conservative treatments fail, hip replacement surgery is an option. Hip pain can also be caused by pirifomia syndrome, trochanteric bursitis and tendonitis.
Hip Pain and Osteoarthritis is a condition that occurs when blood flow to an area of bone is restricted. Patients usually experience pain and coldness as a result. If an inadequate amount of blood flow reaches the bone, the cells will die and the bone may collapse. One of the most common places for osteoarthritis to occur is in the hip joint. Learn More
Many healthcare professionals have found that the hip pain from osteoarthritis conditions can be relieved without surgery. With their innovative treatment approaches, patients can experience symptom improvement in 2 weeks for patients with mild and moderate hip osteoarthritis and pirifomis syndrome. For hip pain due to severe osteoarthritis, bone-on-bone condition or avascular necrosis (osteonecrosis), patients can have a significant improvement with 3 months of treatment.

What is Hip Pain?
Hip pain is common problem, and it can be confusing because there are many causes. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the underlying problem. If you have hip pain, some common causes include:
Arthritis - Arthritis is among the most frequent causes of hip pain, and there are many treatments available. If conservative
treatments fail, hip replacement surgery is an option.
Trochanteric Bursitis - Trochanteric bursitis is an extremely common problem that causes inflammation of the bursa over the outside of the hip joint.
Tendonitis - Tendonitis can occur in any of the tendons that surround the hip joint. The most frequently encountered tendonitis around the hip is iliotibial band (IT band) tendonitis.
Osteonecrosis - Osteonecrosis is a condition that occurs when blood flow to an area of bone is restricted. If an inadequate amount of
blood flow reaches the bone, the cells will die and the bone may collapse. One of the most common places for osteonecrosis to occur is in the hip joint.
Lumbar Pain - Referred Symptoms - Many back and spine problems can cause symptoms around the buttocks and hip. The most common problems that refer pain to the hip region are herniated discs and sciatica.
Snapping Hip - Syndrome Snapping hip syndrome is a word used to describe three distinct hip problems. The first is when the IT band
snaps over the outside of the thigh. The second occurs when the deep hip flexor snaps over the front of the hip joint. Finally, tears of the cartilage, or labrum, around the hip socket can cause a snapping sensation.
Muscle Strains - Strains of the muscles around the hip and pelvis can cause pain and spasm. The most common strains are groin pulls
and hamstring strains.
Hip Fracture - Hip fractures are most common in elderly patients with osteoporosis. Treatment of broken hips requires surgery to either replace the broken portion or repair it with a metal plate and screws.
Stress Fracture - Stress fractures of the hip are most common in athletes who participate in high-impact sports, such as long distance runners. Treatment usually is successful by avoiding the impact activities.
