Hip pain can be caused by a sports injury, arthritis or an overuse condition known as a greater trochanteric pain syndrome. Inflammation and or injury can break down the cartilage tissue in a joint and cause groin, buttock and leg pain. Symptoms often times include stiffness, pain, swelling, or tenderness. Occasionally the groin pain can come from an inflamed bursa, entrapped nerve or a hernia. Our experts will help to diagnose the source of the pain and prescribe therapies that will improve your function and reduce pain.
How we diagnose
A comprehensive examination is performed on every patient with focus on ferreting out various problems that can cause hip pain.
Our physicians also examine the hip joint, lower abdomen and outer hip region with the help of advanced imaging techniques such as diagnostic ultrasound.
MRI and X-ray imaging is often used to confirm the diagnosis made by our expert examination.
