Chronic hip pain can interfere with every aspect of your daily life, and if it is not addressed, hip pain can lead to painful musculoskeletal imbalances in related areas, including the low back, groin, legs, knees, ankles, and feet. Sometimes surgery is necessary, but before making this decision, it is important to know what is causing your hip pain.

A wide range of health problems can lead to hip pain, including arthritis, a labral tear, osteoporosis, bursitis, sciatica, infections, tendinitis, a strain, sprain or a fracture. Consequently, before you embark upon a course of treatment, it is critical that you receive an accurate and complete diagnosis.

At the Kaplan Center our physicians have years of experience treating patients with chronic hip pain, and we completely reject the notion that “you just have to live with it.” Whether you are searching for a diagnosis for your hip pain or have already been diagnosed but have yet to find a long-lasting and effective treatment, the Kaplan Center is ready to help you.

At your first visit, your Kaplan physician will take time exploring the onset of your condition, the specific nature of your symptoms and the overall status of your health. You’ll also be asked about the medications and therapies you’ve tried in the past, and what has and hasn’t worked for you. To gather additional information about your condition, specialized diagnostic laboratory testing may be necessary.

After reviewing all of the factors contributing to your condition, your physician will spend time talking with you about your diagnosis and working with you to create a customized and multi-dimensional treatment plan that addresses not only your immediate pain, but also any possible underlying or co-existing conditions that may be causing or contributing to your symptoms.

We offer a multitude of effective non-surgical treatment options, including:

If surgery is your best option, we will coordinate with any other medical providers involved in your case and stay course with you throughout your treatment and recovery.

We’re here for you, and we want to help. Our goal is to return you to optimal health as soon as possible.
