Each patient will be thoroughly evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in adolescent and young adult hip disorders. Diagnostic tests may include x-rays, MRI and CT scan. Once a specific diagnosis is made, your doctor may recommend either nonsurgical or surgical treatment options.
Nonsurgical treatment options focus on decreasing pain and inflammation and rehabilitating the muscles in and around the hip. These treatment options include the use of anti-inflammatory medications, diagnostic and therapeutic injections and physical therapy.
