What Causes Hip Pain?

Hip pain can be caused by inflammation of the joint or by natural wear and tear. Damaged cartilage and tissue, bone issues and arthritis are common causes of hip pain at different stages of life. Our orthopedic team will work with you to pinpoint the source of the pain so that an accurate treatment plan is put in motion.

Many things cause hip pain, and depending on the location of where you’re hurting, you may either have an issue with your hip or possibly even a soft tissue or back problem near your hip area.

Call 866-GUTHRIE (866-488-4743) to make an appointment.

How is Hip Pain Treated?

When your hip cartilage is damaged, surgeons can provide treatments to repair or remove the damaged tissue to avoid the progression of arthritis.

Guthrie offers treatment options for conditions including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Joint deterioration
  • Uneven alignment of the hip
  • Degenerative joint diseases

We now offer the option of anterior approach hip replacements for patients in Corning and Sayre. Most patients who choose these types of hip replacement are sent home from the hospital sooner (most discharges are the same or the next day). Recovery is faster, you have less pain and see long-term results, which lets you get back to the activities you enjoy most quickly. 

You and your provider can discuss options that are best for you and that may offer a shorter recovery time. Physical therapy is prescribed to help rebuild strength and improve movement.
