Treatments for tendonitis, trochanteric bursitis, arthritis

If you’re on this site the conservative hip pain treatments have failed you: over the counter medications, rest, heat/ice, and physical therapy, to treat your hip issue. So what are you left with for treating hip injuries? Some physicians may recommend a steroid injection into the area. The steroid can help temporarily with pain, but the potential side effects of the steroid such as weakening the tendons and ligaments in the area makes steroid injections a less than attractive choice. Other doctors may recommend an arthroscopic surgery, where the joint is “cleaned up.”

At The Spine & Pain Center of California, achieving your best clinical outcome is our number one priority. We will first establish a definitive diagnosis of your condition. This will be done through a records review, physical examination, and personally reviewing available imaging studies. In addition a dynamic ultrasound may be used to assess movement of the affected hip to detect pathology which may not be evident on static images such as MRI or x-ray.

The Spine & Pain Center of California offers a variety of image guided, minimally invasive injection procedures using PRP to help treat hip conditions. The Spine & Pain Center of California will fine tailor the right procedure for your condition, providing you the ability to avoid potentially harmful steroids or hip surgery.
