Hip Pain & Sciatica
Sciatica is a common cause of hip pain. Sciatica pain originates from your sciatic nerve being compressed or “pinched”. Many times this is due to problems in your lower back such as herniated discs.
Sciatic pain runs down from the lower back into the hips and rear. The pain normally ends down in the leg before the knee. Sciatic pain in the hips can be felt when trying to walk, sitting and even sometimes when lying down, the pain is often sharp and intense.
Atlanta Medical Clinic offers a variety of treatment options for hip pain. Our medical doctors and chiropractors specialize in hip joint pain management and will provide you the best-suited treatment for your individual diagnosis.
Pain during or after hip movements.
Tenderness when you apply light pressure to your hip.
Loss of flexibility because you can’t move your hip joint through its full range of motion.
Bone spurs that feel like hard lumps and usually form around your hip joint.
Other common causes of hip pain are inflamed tendons, many times caused by over-exercising, fractures, and sprains in your hip joint area. Inflamed tendons in your hip area can be very painful but usually heals within a few days. Another common cause of long-term hip pain is arthritis or joint swelling.
