The doctors at Orthopaedic Bone & Joint Specialists, PA can help you restore joint mobility and function and achieve maximum hip pain relief.
Common Causes of Hip Joint Pain
Hip joint pain is typically associated with age. Osteoarthritis, degenerative disease and fractures (often the results of osteoporosis) are all major causes of hip joint pain. However, hip pain may also be caused by sports injuries, labral tears, and tendonitis. Such joint misalignment and resulting hip pain is usually results from impact-induced sports injuries or other accidents.

Arthritis Pain Relief in the Hips
While arthritis generally develops or worsens with age, hip pain from arthritis is not inevitable, and it is not a condition you must live with. Dr. Altman specializes in age management. He practices a variety of arthritis pain relief methods that do not entail prescription medication or surgery. He can help you find an arthritis treatment that provides maximum hip joint pain relief and restores a fuller range of motion.
Other Hip Pain Relief Options
Some injuries may damage the hip joint to the point that natural healing alone cannot restore range of motion or allow a pain-free future. For many fractures or severe arthritis, hip joint replacement may be the best option. If orthopaedic surgery is recommended, Dr. Altman will help you understand the procedure and the recovery process. With more than 30 years of experience, he will perform the procedure using the least invasive techniques and highest quality medical supplies available.
