Advanced Treatments for the Hip and Groin

Hip conditions are one of the most painful types of bodily pain, but our first rate medical programs can deliver a customized solution. Hip pain, and similarly located groin pain, can be very frustrating. We use a combination of advanced rehabilitation care, combined with modern and also regenerative medical treatments, including stem cells and PRP, to deliver top patient treatments for hip and groin pain sufferers. Our goal is to help you become more mobile, so that you can get back to participating in day-to-day activities that you have forgone because of living with hip immobility and pain.

While everyone is different, there are some common hip conditions that we are able to diagnose and treat.

Diseases & Conditions

Adductor Tendonitis

Forceful contraction or overuse of adductor muscles can lead to this condition, which usually happens during quick acceleration activities (i.e. – football, soccer) or from running and changing directions quickly. The pain is most felt when the patient squeezes legs together or when lifting the leg up from the core.

Groin Strain

Forceful impact or repetition can lead to groin strain, which is either small or large tearing with the set of adductor muscles. A patient with groin strain may experience large rupture, sharp pain, swelling, muscle spasms, pulling sensations, soreness, and fatigue or tightening near the thigh and groin area.

Hip Arthritis

Osteoarthritis affects millions of people, and hip arthritis is a type of degenerative condition associated with aging. The wear and tear is progressive, thus the bone and cartilage of the hip joint swells and causes pain and inflexibility, making walking and other normal activities difficult.

Hip Flexor Strain

This is a type of muscle strain that causes pain in the frontal hip region or groin, often due to sudden contraction of the muscles in the hip flexor. Small tears may cause a little bit of pain or loss of function, while a bigger tear or rupture will lead to significant immobility. When the patient tries to move or pull, they may experience a sharp pain in the groin or front of hip.

Labral Tear

When the connective tissue in the hip joint falters, either due to sudden trauma or twisting, this can put a halt on athletic activities. Some patients actually hear the tear when it happens, while others feel it after a gradual wear and tear from overuse. It can be felt throughout the butt, hips and groin.

Osteitis Pubis

Another athletically-inclined overuse injury that can lead to inflammation and tissue damage in the pelvis, particularly where the pubic symphysis joins together.

Trochanteric Bursitis

Another athletically-inclined overuse injury that can lead to inflammation and tissue damage in the pelvis, particularly where the pubic symphysis joins together.
