Our hips are ball and socket joints that allow for a wide range of motion when walking, running, and dancing. If you are experiencing pain in your hips, it can make it difficult to stand, sit, and even sleep as the pain causes discomfort throughout your lower body. At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, our pain management specialists strive to create a comfortable and effective treatment experience for all of our patients, so they can enjoy better mobility, less pain, and a happier life as a result.

Why does my hip hurt?

Some of the most common causes of hip pain include arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, muscle strain, fractures, and labral tears. Each of these conditions can cause chronic pain that radiates from the hip joint into other parts of the leg or body. When you begin experiencing hip pain, it is important to schedule a consultation with a certified doctor who can provide you with a precise diagnosis and begin an effective treatment regimen, so you can reduce your pain and get back to moving through life the way you want to.

Is surgery always required for hip pain?

Hip replacement surgery can be an effective treatment method for many patients, especially for those with degenerative conditions like arthritis that have negatively impacted the overall health of the joint. However, at Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we believe that surgical intervention should always be a last resort treatment. We focus on providing our patients with a wide range of treatment options including physical therapy, joint injections, and regenerative medicine techniques that can help reduce inflammation, strengthen important muscles, and even help the soft tissue of the joint heal effectively from within. For patients with only minor conditions, rest and anti-inflammatory or pain reliving medications may be enough to reduce pain while the joint has time to heal on its own.

What is a partial hip replacement?

While many of us have heard of hip replacement surgery, most may not be aware that a partial hip replacement can offer relief from some severe hip fractures without replacing the acetabulum. In a total hip replacement, both the femoral head (ball) and the acetabulum (socket) are replaced with prosthetic materials. However, for some patients who have sustained fractures to their femoral head that cannot be treated with surgical pins, but whose hip is otherwise intact, a partial hip replacement may be better suited to addressing their needs with less pain and recovery time.

Why do you offer cognitive behavior therapy?

At Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we understand that pain management requires a multi-disciplinary response. Many patients who struggle with chronic pain will notice that it takes a toll on their emotional well-being. Chronic pain can impact your relationships, your sleep, and nearly every other aspect of your life. Our Behavioral Health Program offers patients who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or anger because of their chronic hip pain to develop effective coping strategies by addressing these concerns in a therapeutic environment.
