Treating Hip Pain: Treatment Medicines

Whаt іѕ Treatment Medicines?

These medicines are meant to relieve pain and inflammation. They can also slow down bone loss, and prevent further hip damage.

Hip Anatomy

One of the biggest joints bearing most of our body weight is the hip joint. This joint is where our thigh bone touches the pelvis and two form a ball and socket joint. Hence, the hip joint consists of two main components: femoral head and acetabulum. Femoral head is a ball-shaped bone piece resting at the top of your thigh bone (femur). Acetabulum is a hole in the pelvis that hosts the femoral head. There are bands of tissue known as ligaments that attach the ball to acetabulum in order to make the hip more stable. This also forms the joint capsule, which boasts a layer of a thin membrane (synovium) that generates a viscous fluid for keeping the joint lubricated.

There are also sacs full of fluid called bursae. They are designed to pad all areas affected by wear and tear. That is areas between muscles, bones and tendons. There are big muscles surrounding the hip joint and they offer support, fluid joint movements and stability.

Still in the anatomy of the hip, you will find important nerves and blood vessels. The main nerve here is also the largest: Sciatica nerve. It is located at the back of hips while femoral nerve is at the front of your hip. There is a femoral artery that runs in the pelvis and then by the front of the hip and along the thigh.

If you have hip pain, you must visit the right hip pain treatment NYC clinic. In this article, we discuss the best hip pain treatments and the best hip pain management centers in NYC.

Muscles surrounding the hip joint

Adductor muscles: These are inner thigh muscles and their work is to pull your leg inward to the other leg.

Hamstrings: These muscles are situated on the rear of your thigh and start from the hip area to knee.

Quadriceps: These are four muscles on the front of your thigh. They begin from your hip to the knee joint.

Gluteals: These muscles are in the buttock area and situated on the back of hips.

Illiopsoas muscle: It starts in the lower back and attaches to the upper femur bone.

Hip Treatment Medicines

These are drugs for relieving pain and inflammation. They can also slow down bone loss, and prevent further hip damage. Drugs that are commonly used to reduce pain and inflammation are:

  • NSAIDs -These are mostly preferred when one has arthritic pain. Most hip conditions can be calmed down with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Corticosteroids – These drugs heal quickly because they act like cortisone, a substance made by your body to regulate inflammation. When hip inflammation is triggered by a systematic autoimmune disease, corticosteroids can be used to reduce pain. In some situations, such as when the only inflamed area is your hip joint or bursa, the doctor can offer a corticosteroid injection.
  • Analgesics – These are primarily used to reduce hip pain due to arthritis, hip injury or hip surgery. If you cannot take NSAIDs for whatever reason, including stomach issues, try analgesics.
  • Biological response modifiers – These can be used for a number of inflammatory types of hip arthritis. They are simply biologic agents approved by the FDA and each of them blocks a step in the inflammation process and as they do so, they don’t suppress the whole immune system.
  • Osteoporosis medicines – These are used to decelerate bone loss and to assist the body build new bone. This strengthens bones to keep them from breaking easily.
  • DMARDs – These are Disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). These work slowly to change the course of inflammatory disease like given forms of hip arthritis: ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.
