Hip injury can be very painful and sometimes requires immediate medical attention. One should always consult an orthopedic for hip pains. A mild hip pain needs adequate rest, ice compression and elevation. Exercising, swimming and resistance training are a few physical therapies, which can reduce pain. Such pains usually subside within a few days. Yet more severe muscle or tendon pain can be cured by over the counter medication such as Tylenol, Naproxen, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as Motrin, Ibuprofen or Aleve. Some non-surgical treatments are heat therapy, home exercise program and physical therapy. Otherwise, surgical treatment is required in severe injuries where the muscle fiber is completely torn and needs to be stitched. Sometimes hip injuries such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis and hip strains, hip pointers, hip bursitis and femoroacetabular impingement on athletes require physical therapies as well as part from medication. Physical therapies help to strengthen the muscles and the pain tends to subside. Otherwise, various types of injections also are a way to give relief from the pain. Intra articular injections, which are ultrasound guarded, and cortisone injections, which are very precise. A trochanteric Bursa injection is given when anti-inflammatory drugs and physical exercise have failed to give any relief. A more advanced treatment is through hip Arthroscopy where heat-generating radio frequency probes inside the joint capsule and removes the inflamed tissue. Rest and exercise can recover a mild strain within 2-3 days, or else strenuous activity should be avoided. In more severe cases, it requires a longer period for recovery.
