Hip Sprain and Strain Treatment
The hip joint is supported by muscles, tendons and ligaments that control the function and stability of the leg and hip. Sprains and strains of ligaments, tendons and muscles in the hip can cause intense pain and limit mobility. If you are suffering from a hip injury, come see our pain specialists at Caliber Pain™. We offer hip sprains and strains treatment at our medical facility in UES New York City.
Hip sprains and strains can occur at any time the muscles, tendons or ligaments in the hip are stretched, torn or pushed beyond their limits. While trauma, like a fall, auto accident or impact, can cause a hip sprain or strain, it is more common in sports injuries. A pulled hip flexor muscle or ligament tear is common in sports, like football, where the player is running and experiencing some type of impact. The difference between a hip strain and sprain is the type of tissue that is damaged.
- Hip strain – A strain occurs when a tendon or muscle is stretched, torn or damaged
- Hip sprain – A sprain occurs when a ligament is stretched, torn or damaged
While hip strains and sprains involve different tissues, they can have similar symptoms. Localized hip pain, inflammation and swelling are likely to occur with both injuries, and hip function will be limited.
Interventional Treatment for Hip Injuries
Conservative treatment is usually effective in recovering from hip strains and sprains. Rest, ice and the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like ibuprofen, may be all that is needed for a mild sprain or strain. For more severe injuries, interventional treatment may be needed. Caliber Pain™ offers personalized treatment plans for those with moderate to severe hip injuries for pain relief and recovery. Physical therapy, PRP injections, corticosteroid injections and other treatments may be recommended for faster healing.
