Radio Frequency Ablation

The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear but with age and use, the cartilage can wear down, muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused and bones in the hip can break — either due to a fall or an injury. Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain.

Osteoarthritis and Arthritis: These are among the most common causes of hip pain in older adults.

  • Hip fracture: With age, as the bones become weak and brittle they are more likely to break during a fall.
  • Bursitis: When bursae or sacs of liquid found between tissues get inflamed, they can cause pain. Inflammation of bursae is caused due to repetitive activities that overwork or irritate the hip joint.
  • Tendinitis: It is inflammation or irritation of the tendons that are the thick bands of tissue that attach bones to muscles.
  • Sprain in muscle or tendon that support the hips: It is usually caused due to repeated activities such as exercise.
  • Cancer: Tumors that start in the bone or spread to the bone can cause pain in hips.
  • Avascular Necrosis: This condition happens when bone tissue in the hips die due to lack of blood flow.

Depending on the cause, you might feel some of the following symptoms:

  • Discomfort in your thigh, inside of the hip joint, groin, or buttocks
  • Pain that gets worse with activity
  • Radiating pain to the hips
  • Reduced range of motion

The first step to treat hip pain is to understand its cause, therefore, our experts at Wellknox Pain Clinic, Hyderabad will find out and evaluate the cause of your pain. They’ll request your medical history and do a physical examination during which they may feel for tenderness and swelling and will assess your range of motion and joint stability.

Imaging tests, such as an x-ray and MRI may also be prescribed.

Physical Therapy: Hip pain exercises and hip pain physical therapy often helps in increasing your range of motion.

  • Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: The treatment uses the patient’s own blood which is drawn just before the procedure and centrifuged till the PRP is separated from the blood. PRP is injected into the joint to heal and regenerate cartilage, and into tears to heal tendons. The injections are given with the guidance of ultrasound.
  • Joint Triamcinolone Acetonide Injections: The injection helps in achieving pain relief, reducing inflammation, and improving the mobility of the hip joint.
  • Robotic Laser: The non-invasive therapy uses multi-wave laser light and is fully robotic to significantly reduce hip pain and inflammation and promote soft tissue repair, thereby promoting faster healing.
