stability in motion
The first step in the evaluation of pain in the pelvis and hip areas is to rule out lumbar spinal sources of pain. More often than not, pain from the lumbar spine structures can be referred into the pelvis and hip areas.
The hip joint is predisposed to degenerative changes (osteoarthritis of the hip) or traumatic and inflammatory conditions (soft tissue tears, bursitis, tendinitis). These result from a structural instability of the joint complex (sprains, strains) or poor sports technique.
Pain resulting from sports injuries of the hip and piriformis muscle can be treated with regenerative techniques employing proliferative therapy (prolotherapy), platelet-rich plasma, or stem cell injections.
