What is hip treatment?

Your hip is a complicated joint that gets wear and tear over time—whether from walking, playing sports, or other activities. It’s also prone to injury from falls or trauma. Your hip pain treatment depends on the severity of the pain or injury and the source of your discomfort. 

When should I see a hip treatment provider?

Hip conditions and injuries we treat:

  • arthritis of the hip
  • hip fractures
  • hip impingement and labral tears
  • degenerative joint disease (osteoarthritis)
  • hip pain
  • bursitis (joint inflammation)
  • hip dislocations
  • hip tendonitis
  • hip sprains
  • pinched nerves and nerve pain
  • previous hip replacements that need repairs

Hip pain treatment options

We can help you manage most hip conditions with nonsurgical treatments. At your first appointment, your care team will discuss which hip pain treatments are right for you.

Your options may include physical therapy, medication, injections and exercise to strengthen and relieve pain in your hip. But in some cases, hip surgery is the best way to treat hip pain, restricted mobility or severe injuries.

Meet your expert care team

Your hip treatment team may include:

  • A nurse navigator. They guide your hip treatment and create a personalized recovery plan that fits your life. They're available 24/7 to quickly answer your questions. Nurse navigators aren’t currently available at all Allina Health locations.
  • Physician assistants (PA). They work closely with your physical therapist or athletic trainer. Our physician assistants can diagnose hip conditions, prescribe anti-inflammatory medications to reduce hip pain and work with your care team to support your recovery.  
  • A physical therapist or athletic trainer. They can help you build strength in the muscles around your hip joint to reduce pain and inflammation, increase flexibility, and improve mobility.
  • A board-certified orthopedic surgeon. If other hip pain treatments don’t bring relief, they help you decide if hip surgery is right for you. They’ll discuss each step of the procedure and answer your questions, so you know what to expect.  

Health insurance coverage and costs

Contact your health insurance provider about medical coverage and get a price estimate before scheduling a consultation for hip treatment. 

We’ll help you find the best payment and insurance options for your needs. You’ll pay any deductible amounts and charges your policy doesn’t cover.
