Hip Pain

Is hip pain is impacting your everyday activities?

Why Does My Hip Hurt?

Your hip is a flexible joint. When it is injured, the pain can reduce your hip’s flexibility and motion significantly. A variety of problems can develop, including arthritis, fractures, inflammation, muscle strains, and even cancer.

There are many causes of hip joint pain. Early Evaluation and treatment can provide pain relief even without surgery. Bone and Joint Specialists have devoted our practice to the nonsurgical treatment of joint pain/arthritis as well as total joint replacement.
