Common Hip Conditions

Following are a few of the hip conditions our physicians treat.

Labral or cartilage tears

Labral or cartilage tears

Labral or cartilage tears in the hip can result from injuries, overuse, or structural abnormalities, causing hip pain and limited range of motion. These tears can affect the cartilage surrounding the hip socket. Conservative treatments may include rest, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications to reduce pain further. Some severe cases may require arthroscopic surgery to repair or remove the damaged cartilage.



Hip bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, tiny sacs filled with fluid that cushion and reduce friction between soft tissues and bones. Repetitive movements or injuries can lead to bursitis, causing pain on the outer side of the hip. Treatment involves rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy. In some cases, aspiration of excess fluid or corticosteroid injections may be recommended.



Osteoarthritis in the hip involves the gradual breakdown of joint cartilage, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. It is commonly associated with aging, wear and tear, and genetic factors. Conservative measures include pain management, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications. In advanced cases, hip replacement surgery may be considered over the counter to alleviate pain and restore function.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the joints, causing inflammation. In the hip, it can lead to pain, swelling, and joint deformities. Management includes medications to control inflammation, slow disease progression, reduce inflammation, and relieve symptoms. In severe cases, surgical interventions such as joint replacement may be considered.

Avascular necrosis

Avascular necrosis

Avascular necrosis involves the death of bone tissue due to a lack of blood supply. In the hip, it can result in joint pain and collapse of the femoral head. Causes include trauma, long-term steroid use, or underlying medical conditions. Treatment aims to preserve the hip joint and may involve medications, physical therapy, and, in advanced cases, surgical procedures like core decompression or joint replacement. Early detection is crucial for effective management.

Hip Pain Treatments

In addition to surgery, our physicians have other methods of treatment aimed toward alleviating hip pain, including physical therapy, cortisone and steroid injections, and incorporating oral pain medications. They will review how well these methods ease hip pain when considering the possibility of surgery, whether that’s joint replacement surgery, hip replacement surgery, or surgery to assist with severe hip pain from hip arthritis.

At TOA Columbia, we understand that each patient’s medical journey is different, so our physicians will tailor treatment plans to your needs. This means that our team may recommend things to incorporate into your daily life such as gentle exercise or pain relievers when you feel pain.

Coping With Hip Pain

One great way to cope with hip pain is exercise. With your physician’s guidance, a daily exercise plan can strengthen muscles in the hip and increase flexibility, addressing hip pain symptoms and providing pain relief. 

Depending on your diagnosis, your doctor may prescribe physical therapy as a first step to alleviating this pain. A physical therapist can get you started on a few exercises that can later be replicated at home. These exercises generally focus on improving blood flow around the hip joint, hip bone, thigh bone, ball and socket joint, and anywhere else in the area you may feel pain.

Another treatment for hip pain is to receive an injection of corticosteroids. This procedure administers medicine to the affected joint to relieve pain. Each patient will have a different course of treatment, but it is expected that pain will diminish within four weeks of treatment.

How TOA Columbia Can Help You

Our dedicated team of professionals is committed to discovering the cause of your hip pain before commencing treatment, giving you the best chance of pain relief and recovery.

With hip pain, there are typically a vast number of issues that could be causing it, including back problems, bursitis, or arthritis. X-ray is the first step to determining exactly what is happening in your body and can give us a good idea of how to start treatment. These images can show bone spurs, cartilage tears, stress fractures, or even the onset of arthritis. These issues are treatable or manageable. From minimally invasive procedures and nnon-steroidal anti-inflammatorymedications through to total hip replacement, our goal is to protect your joint health and give you the hip pain relief you deserve.
