What is Causing my Hip Pain?

At Franklin County Medical Center, our focus is on identifying the exact cause of your hip pain and creating personalized treatment plans. Our experienced doctors use advanced techniques and technology for a thorough evaluation.

  • Medical History: Our doctors will discuss your medical history, including any injuries, surgeries, or long-term health problems connected to your hip pain.
  • Physical Examination: We will carefully examine your hip to assess its movement, stability, and signs of swelling or inflammation. This helps us understand the possible causes of your pain and determine further tests.
  • Imaging Tests: We may utilize X-rays, MRI scans, or CT scans to visualize your hip joint. These tests provide detailed images of bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, helping us identify any damage or issues.
  • Laboratory Tests: Blood tests may be conducted to check for specific health conditions contributing to your hip pain.
  • Diagnostic Injections: In cases where the cause of your pain is uncertain, we may administer special injections to help pinpoint the source of the pain and provide temporary relief while we investigate further.

By employing these methods, our experts can determine the cause of your hip pain and develop a customized treatment plan to alleviate your discomfort and improve your overall well-being. Trust Franklin County Medical Center for accurate diagnosis and effective solutions.
