Hip Pain Specialists in Orange County

Dr. Cheng,

I'm in Fullerton. When I wake up in the morning, I'm fine but after I play soccer, my hip
pain kills me. If I walk, I'm ok but if I sit down then get up again, my hip pain returns. Can
you tell me more about my hip pain?

Your hip pain is probably caused by tendonitis (swollen overused tendons and muscles)
in your hip. Hip pain is pretty hard to treat because we use it so much. I'm assuming your
pain didn't start out hurting all the time but now it's getting more frequent right?

Keep in mind that if you continue to ignore it by bracing it or just using ice and heat, it's
going to get worse before it gets better.  You might have some pain free periods but your
hip pain will likely return. Bracing, ice, and heat take care of the symptoms, but not the
problem causing your hip pain.

Hip pain rarely goes away by themselves, you might need help if it's been more than a
month. What you're describing sounds like a mild problem but it can get out of hand real
fast, so be careful.  Think of it this way, if you are taping something down and a corner
starts to come up, you have to press it back down fast or else the whole piece will come
off. Your hip pain acts the same way. Take care of it now before it gets more serious.

At our clinics, we treat hip pain through acupressure, deep tissue massage, stretching,
and exercises to reduce the pain and swelling. We rarely use heat, ice, ultrasound, or
electrical stimulation.  We have found that our treatment approach is much more effective
than using modalities for hip pain.
