Your hips and pelvis help you bend, twist, and walk. They are responsible for providing you with a full range of motion that helps in performing daily activities. Proven hip surgeons can offer a broad array of options for helping you deal with stiffness and pain in the area.
Pelvic surgery may be recommended by cosmetic surgeons if conservative modalities fail to acquire a satisfactory result. Your surgeon will create an individualized treatment plan if you are suffering from discomfort or reduced functionality because of your pelvis or hip condition.
Southern California Hip Institute (SCHI), led by board certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Tigran Garabekyan, provides safe and proven orthopedic surgery procedures to patients in Los Angeles, Century City, CA, and surrounding locations.
Treatment for Hip and Pelvic Conditions
Hip arthritis symptoms include aching, discomfort, and stiffness in the buttock, groin, and thigh area after prolonged sitting. Patients experience pain when active. There are different types of arthritis. Your surgeon will choose the right treatment option based on the one affecting your joints.
Braces, injections, anti-inflammatory medications, and other noninvasive treatments may be sufficient for relieving your concerns and improving your quality of life. Minimally invasive techniques are preferred over traditional open surgery if surgery is absolutely necessary.
Injuries in Thigh Muscles
Athletes and active individuals are prone to thigh injuries, such as tear or strains. These can often occur because of high-intensity activity or a forceful blow to the muscle. There are three major muscles in the thigh – quadriceps, adductor, and hamstring. Quadriceps and hamstring are located on the front and back.
These muscles are prone to injuries since they cross the knee and hip joints. Recommended treatment will be determined by the surgeon based on the severity of the injury. Thigh muscle injuries in most cases don’t require surgery.
Snapping Hip Syndrome
Snapping or popping sound in most cases occur when you flex the hip or pelvis or bend it. This is usually a benign condition. Strengthening and stretching exercises can help in protecting the joint from potential damage. Your condition may be more severe if the sound is accompanied by discomfort or pain as well.
This is usually the case in iliotibial band snap, iliopsoas tendon snap, or a hip labral tear. During the initial consultation, your surgeon will determine the cause of your symptoms. Based on the symptoms, they will create a personalized treatment plan for addressing your unique anatomical needs and concerns.
Hip Labral Tears
Labrum refers to a piece of cartilage found on the outside rim of the hip joint. It is responsible for keeping the top of your thighbone securely positioned in the hip socket. You may notice a clicking, locking, or catching sensation during movement. You may experience stiffness and pain that may limit your mobility as well.
Physical therapy, rest, and anti-inflammatory medicines among other conservative methods can provide relief. Your surgeon may perform a minimally invasive procedure for helping you resume regular activities if none of the options work.
