The cause of the hip pain will direct the treatment provided.
Aside from medications, therapy will be directed to maintain the strength and range of motion of the hip. As with any illness or injury, the goal is to return the patient to their normal level of function. A team approach involving the health-care professional, physical therapist, or chiropractic-care provider may be considered.
