One of the most common sites for injuries and pain among active individuals is the hip. Our understanding of the hip joint has evolved rapidly in the past few years as medical technology allows for more efficient diagnosis and treatment. At Chattanooga Sports Medicine & Orthopedics, you can expect a comprehensive treatment program for your hip pain or condition.
If you experienced a recent hip injury, from either a fracture, dislocation or strain, you may need treatment and rehabilitation to get back to a normal level of mobility. Some diseases and conditions may also contribute to pain and instability in your hip joint. Treatment varies depending on severity of the joint damage, and at CSMO, Chattanooga’s preeminent Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Thomas Brown III, M.D., will recommend the best options available to you that will get you back up to your regular speed.
When symptoms are mild, usually rest, rehabilitative exercises and medicine can relieve hip pain. If, however, damage to the joint is more severe, you may need more progressive treatment. At CSMO we provide comprehensive treatment for hip joints, including hip arthroscopy, implants, resurfacing and minimally-invasive hip replacement.
Common Hip Problems
Injuries from falling and sports-related strain or fracture cause a host of hip problems, from hip tendonitis to joint dislocation. There are also musculoskeletal conditions, such as Hip Bursitis, Snapping Hip, Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) and arthritis, that cause damage to the hip joint.
