Your hips are an important part of the musculoskeletal system because you rely on healthy hips for walking, running, jumping, and sitting. When your hips hurt, you may have stiffness or pain when doing normal activities, when engaging in strenuous activity, or even when sitting or trying to sleep. Hip pain can be the result of various factors, but arthritis or previous fractures are common causes of frequent hip pain. If you experience stiffness or pain in the hip area, you can schedule an appointment with us, Suburban Orthopaedics, at one of our offices in Bartlett, Elgin, or Schaumburg.
Joint Pain from Arthritis
If you experience a lot of joint pain in your hips and suffer from arthritis, your orthopedic can evaluate your condition and determine which form of treatment will best suit your health care needs. Non-invasive procedures may work for minor pain, but your doctor may suggest you consider hip surgery if you have chronic arthritis or suffer from hip pain that affects your ability to function normally.
Hip Surgery Due to an Injury
In the event that you fall on your hip and fracture it, you may need to consider surgery. A hip surgeon may recommend that you undergo hip replacement surgery if you’re an older patient with previous problems or if the fracture is so severe that fixing the hip won’t let you return to full mobility. At Suburban Orthopaedics, we use state of the art technology and integrative services to provide the best care for our patients. Don’t let hip pain keep you from enjoying life. Let our team of specialists help you on the road to recovery.
