Conservative treatment includes R.I.C.E (rest, ice, compression, elevation). According to arthritis foundation, some of the recommended exercises are to walk in a shallow pool, gentle swimming, walking on a flat surface or on the treadmill and doing yoga. An over the counter medication like Tylenol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as Motrin or Aleve can give relief for osteoarthritis or tendinitis. Rheumatoid arthritis can be treated with medications such as Corticosteroids, or disease-modifying anti –rheumatic drug like Methotrexate and Mulfasalazine.Alternative treatment can be acupuncture, hydrotherapy, massage or supplements such as capsaicin, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, gamma, linolenicacid (GLA) and ginger. Trochanteric Bursitis can also cause hip pain. Hip injury, improper posture, joint overuse are some of its causes. This condition occurs due to the inflammation of Bursa, a liquid filled sac near the hip joint. Then there are invasive treatments such as hip replacement surgery .it covers total hip joint replacement in which both the socket and the head of the femur are replaced by artificial surfaces or hip resurfacing in which the damaged bone or cartilage are replaced by a metal shell.

The researchers used the cartilage to create a “scaffold” or cover which can be applied over the hip joint. However, the treatment is yet to be approved.
