The hip joints are designed for both weight bearing and mobility. A number of conditions may lead to hip pain including injury, overuse or just general “wear and tear”. Hip pain may lead to pain extending into the lower back or down into the leg. It is not uncommon for the muscles, tendons, ligamants and cartilage in and around the hip joint to become irritated or imflammed with normal everyday motions when a hip problem is already present. The providers at Med One have years of experience diagnosing and treating hip problems as well as ordering advanced imaging (MRI, X-rays). Often we may need to cotreat with our network of specialists to ensure that you receive all the options available to best manage your pain and find a solution that best fits your lifestyle.
