While hip pain is a common complaint among the elderly, anyone can develop debilitating pain in the hip. There are a number of reasons for hip pain, including:
Hip flexor pain, on the other hand, usually is a result of overuse or damage done during vigorous exercise. You may have a strain or tear in one of the muscles or ligaments attached to your hips. Swelling, tenderness and bruising usually accompany this type of hip pain. The most common signs that you have a hip flexor injury include:

At the first sign of hip discomfort, check in with your doctor. When caught early, you may be able to reduce and even eliminate the pain through interventional therapies, which Dr. Hosny prefers over surgical solutions. Non-surgical treatment options include:

Hip arthritis is the primary risk factor for developing hip joint pain. If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis, you run the risk of feeling pain in your hips, as well as in your knees and other joints. Age and obesity are two primary factors that increase your risk of developing joint pain. Look for symptoms that include:
The consequences of avoiding proper treatment for your hip pain greatly reduce your chances of a quick recovery. Your quality of life suffers, and you can’t enjoy many of the activities you’re used to participating in. You’re even limited in trying to accomplish your regular daily tasks.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen.

I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.Jeff ★★★★★
I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.Glen ★★★★★
I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.Jen ★★★★★
I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.Sharon
When the least invasive, interventional therapies don’t relieve your pain sufficiently, your Spine & Rehab doctor may suggest other forms of treatment to relieve your pain and get you back on your feet. Since there’s no cure for hip joint pain caused by arthritis, your doctor may recommend:
Hip flexor pain treatment usually works well when you follow your physician’s advice by resting and following pain management directions. Trigger point injections relieve inflammation and pain, although you may need to wear a brace for a while. A complete ligament tear may require surgical intervention to repair.
