Hip Injuries

Our Orthopedic Specialists Can Help Diagnose & Treat Your Hip Injury

Hip Injury

Whether you’re running, rock climbing, rafting, or enjoying another one of the many outdoor activities Wyoming is known for, you rely on your hip joints for mobility. For this reason, a hip injury can feel debilitating. Fortunately, Wyoming residents have access to some of the best orthopedic specialists in the state at Premier Bone & Joint Centers. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained physicians can diagnose the underlying cause of your hip injury and recommend a treatment plan that will help manage pain and restore mobility as soon as possible.

Identifying the Cause of Your Hip Injury

Since you rely on your hip joints when moving, a hip injury is usually accompanied by discomfort in the thigh, groin, joint, and buttocks that worsens dramatically with physical activity. While many patients can trace the cause of their condition to physical trauma, a hip injury can also be caused by:

  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Hip labral tear

Because each of these conditions requires different treatments, it’s best to consult an orthopedic specialist when suffering from hip pain.

A Treatment Plan That Produces Lasting Results

In order to determine the cause of your hip injury, one of our physicians will perform a physical examination. An imaging scan, such as an X-ray or MRI, may also prove useful in certain cases. Once your physician determines the cause of your hip injury, he will recommend the best course of treatment to manage your pain and restore mobility to your joint.

Whenever possible, our orthopedic specialists will recommend a conservative treatment, like physical therapy or medication. If surgery is required, however, you can have peace of mind knowing that many of our physicians belong to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and benefit from specialized education and training on the most up-to-date surgical techniques.
