Hip, Buttocks & Groin Pain Treatment
Hip, Buttocks & Groin Pain Treatment in Solana Beach, CA: Buttock, hip and groin pain is often connected or may possibly be pain that is radiating from another area such as the lower back. The groin and hip areas are some of the most difficult areas of the body to treat by pain management specialists. The reason for the difficulty is that there are a large number of possible structures in this area that can be injured and cause pain. Additionally, most of the structures are very deep within the groin area (including the hip joint).
Pain in the buttocks is often a gradual onset and can include piriformis syndrome, myofascial pain or pain referred from the lower back or sacroiliac joint. Direct impact can cause a contusion or bruising.
Hip pain or hip joint pain typically develops gradually and can be from a number of causes. Labral tears and Osteoarthritis are more common, especially in older athletes who have been highly active in their 20s and 30s. Hip pain in children is often diagnosed as Perthe’s disease.
The most common cause of pain in the groin is an acute groin strain. This is frequently seen in twisting and turning sports such as American football, rugby and soccer. Whereas acute groin strains can take 2 to 3 weeks to recover, chronic groin injuries can take months if not years to clear up. This is the case because there are often several possible causes.

When combined with precise bio-mechanical diagnosis for the root cause of the symptoms, A.R.T. can provide you the fast and highly effective recovery that our patients enjoy everyday at Action Performance Care.
