Hip pain is most commonly one sided, but may appear in both hips either simultaneously or in stages. In some cases, hip pain may be originating in the spine or pelvis but it may also be caused by damage or degeneration of the hip joint and the local muscles, tendons and other soft tissues. .
Osteopathic examination of hip pain will often include a full discussion regarding your regular activities in order to identify any risks for developing your pain. Assessments may be conducted of posture, flexibility, muscle strength, gait and leg length (among others) in order to come to conclusions regarding the root cause of the pain. Treatment will depend upon the findings of the assessment.
