Can a Hip Pain Doctor Effectively Treat Hip Joint Pain Without Surgery?

August 15, 2022

Hip pain is an issue that affects your entire body. It creates an unusual gait, which in turn puts extra stress on your knees, feet, and lower back. Walking even a short distance becomes increasingly difficult when your hip is sore, and standing for long periods of time is excruciating. You’re not ready to consider a hip replacement, and would rather try more conservative treatments first. What type of hip pain doctor is best suited for your needs?

At Pain Treatment Specialists, our board-certified hip pain doctors specialize in interventional pain medicine. Their state-of-the-art hip pain treatments avoid surgery by utilizing targeted pain treatments that address your hip pain at the source. Our nationally-recognized pain specialists understand the common causes of hip pain, and how it dramatically affects the rest of your body. If you’re not sure what kind of doctor you see for joint pain,  book a consultation and begin feeling relief from chronic hip pain.

If you’re suffering from hip joint pain, what types of treatments work best for managing your pain? At Pain Treatment Specialists, our hip pain doctors utilize minimally invasive treatments such as steroid injections to reduce your joint pain and swelling. Our team of nationally recognized pain doctors identify common causes of hip pain, and then customize a treatment plan to relieve your pain and swelling.

What Does a Hip Pain Doctor Do for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes joint pain. Your body’s immune system attacks your body’s tissues and affects the lining of your joints. The result is sore, stiff, and swollen joints that are incredibly painful. What does a rheumatologist doctor do? This type of doctor identifies the cause of your joint pain, and is able to steer you towards joint pain relief. A doctor specializing in joint disorders is able to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, but the best doctor for rheumatoid arthritis is a pain management doctor. Should I see a rheumatologist for osteoarthritis? Since osteoarthritis is not an autoimmune disease, a rheumatoid arthritis specialist in your area is not the best choice for joint pain. A rheumatologist specializes in diagnosing diseases in muscles and joints that are not caused by wear and tear. A diagnosis of osteoarthritis is best provided by an orthopedic doctor, an orthopedist, or a bone doctor.

What kind of doctor do you see for joint pain? At Pain Treatment Specialists, our interventional pain doctors receive specialized training in cutting-edge pain medicine treatments. Their diagnosis and treatment plans utilize the most conservative treatments first, and many patients find tremendous hip pain relief. Our consistent 5-star patient reviews often mention our doctors’ exceptional bedside manners and effective hip pain treatment plans. For example, one recent review compliments Dr. Shane Volney, one of our top hip pain doctors. This patient said that Dr. Volney is “an expert in his field” with an “acute attention to detail” who made them feel at ease and answered all my questions without hesitation.”

Before you contact a rheumatoid arthritis specialist doctor, first meet with the hip pain experts at Pain Treatment Specialists. Our nationally recognized hip joint pain specialists avoid hip replacement surgery by utilizing effective pain medicine treatments for your chronic hip pain.

What are the Best Treatments for Hip Joint Pain?

Hip pain affects every piece of your day, and makes the simple act of walking an intensely painful chore. At Pain Treatment Specialists, our team of nationally recognized hip pain specialists understand the strain that joint pain causes in your life, and strive to find effective and long-lasting solutions for your condition. Our team has extensive experience diagnosing and treating hip pain, and our patient reviews back up our stellar qualifications. However, if you’re experiencing loss of bowel or bladder control, or extreme pain when moving you should seek immediate medical attention. Pain in the hips is uncomfortable, but it should not be debilitating or life-threatening.

Steroid injections are one of the first treatments utilized for hip pain and knee pain. A corticosteroid injection decreases pain and swelling caused by your hip pain condition, and allows you to begin a physical therapy program.

Physical therapy is another excellent tool for hip pain treatments. During your PT sessions, your physical therapist uses specific stretches to relieve your hip pain and lower back pain. You’ll also learn to strengthen your core and lower body, which helps stabilize your hips.

If you’re experiencing hip pain or joint pain, there is relief! Contact the team at Pain Treatment Specialists and begin feeling relief from hip pain.

What are Common Causes of Hip Pain?

Common types of hip pain include ankylosing spondylitis hip pain, rheumatoid arthritis, hip bursitis, osteoarthritis, hip injuries, and hip tendonitis. Your hip is the body’s largest ball and socket joint, and when this fluid movement is off in any way, it’s very noticeable. Your hip’s cartilage may break down over time or due to wear and tear. As we age, our bones also lose density. A fall as an older person may result in a hip injury or broken hip, which may require you to seek immediate medical attention. Orthopedic surgeons may be contacted if your hip injury is severe and needs surgical repair.

The pain doctors at Pain Treatment Specialists look forward to identifying your hip pain and providing effective pain treatments that improve your quality of life. Schedule an appointment at one of our state-of-the-art pain clinics and begin feeling relief from your chronic hip pain.
