About Hip Arthritis
Arthritis, most commonly osteoarthritis, can occur in the hip joints as we age. Osteoarthritis is caused by a variety of factors, including degeneration from aging, genetics, injuries and other health issues. Arthritis is inflammation in the joints that is combined with deterioration of the cartilage, ligaments and bone. Jumping, walking, running, sitting and standing all impact the hip joint. The weight of the upper body and continuous leg movement put stress on the large hip joints, causing wear and tear. Like all joints, arthritis can attack the hip joints, resulting in progressive pain and mobility problems.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
Symptoms of Hip Arthritis
In hip arthritis, symptoms can include localized hip pain when walking, standing or bending, stiffness in the hip joint, radiating pain into the legs and up into the buttocks, and limited range of motion. Hip arthritis symptoms are progressive as the joint deteriorates. Pain becomes chronic, and mobility continues to decline. The best option is starting hip arthritis treatment when symptoms begin to manage pain and slow the progression.
Treatment for Hip Arthritis
Arthritis does not have a cure, but there are treatments to slow the progression and manage symptoms. Our interventional specialists at Ospina Medical offer advanced hip arthritis treatments with Regenexx Regenerative Medicine procedures such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate containing stem cells. These treatments can not only relieve pain, but also slow joint deterioration. Injection therapy and other treatments can manage pain and improve mobility.
