Hip Pain

I have been Dr. Carlisle’s patient for 10 months. I have bulging disks in my cervical spine, lumbar spine, and radiating pain my shoulders and down my legs. I have had this miserable, depressing, chronic pain all my adult life. Dr. Carlisle has taken a direct approach with my treatment of medication and facet injections. With Dr. Carlisle, treatment for my chronic pain is under control. Dr. Carlisle has a caring bedside manner and is genuinely concerned about my well-being. Dr. Carlisle has saved my life. –  DM

The source of hip pain can be as diverse as the types of patients affected by hip problems. Hip pain can be related to degenerative disease or infections, or the condition may develop after trauma, such as fall or sports injury, and can impact a person’s ability to walk, run, or perform every day functions like sitting, climbing stairs, and resting comfortably.

The structure of the hip illustrates why and how it can cause so many issues and affect the whole body. The pelvis and femur (thighbone) come together to form the largest joint in the body.

Disorders of the hip that may cause pain and mobility problems can include:

  • Arthritic conditions
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Bursitis
  • Hamstring injury
  • Torn or stretched tendons and ligaments
  • Pinched, compressed, or damaged nerves
  • Dislocation or fracture
  • Abnormal growth
  • Aseptic Necrosis of the Hip
