Hip Pain Q & A

What Causes Hip Pain?

You can develop hip pain for any number of reasons, from soft tissue injuries to damaged bones. A few of the hip problems often treated at Bluetail Medical Group include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures due to injury
  • Compression fractures
  • Hip bursitis
  • Ligament sprains and muscle strains


Sports-related hip injuries often occur due to improper conditioning and increasing your training regimen too quickly. The team at Bluetail Medical can assess your training and help you develop a training program to prevent injuring your hip.

Does All Hip Pain Feel the Same?

You’ll experience hip pain differently, depending on its underlying cause. For example, you’ll immediately feel the pain when you strain a muscle, whether it’s mild or severe, and the pain is associated with muscle movement.

By comparison, pain that originates in your hip joint, like arthritis, is often felt in your thighs, buttocks, or another part of your body. Pain caused by arthritis develops gradually rather than suddenly.

How is Hip Pain Treated?

Your Bluetail Medical Group physician first determines the specific cause of your pain and the severity of the problem; then they develop a customized treatment plan to relieve your pain and heal the underlying condition.

At Bluetail Medical Group, the experts successfully treat hip pain using the following in-office regenerative medicine procedures:

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: Platelets, a natural component of your blood, contain growth factors. In PRP therapy, your doctor draws your blood, separates the platelets, and injects them directly into the damaged area of your hip. Once injected, the growth factors accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and trigger the growth of new tissues to heal the damaged tissues.
  • Stem Cell Therapy: Throughout your life, stem cells continuously replicate and can produce all the different cells found in your body, healing or replacing tissues that are injured or diseased. At Bluetail Medical Group, your adult stem cells can be extracted from the bone marrow in your hip, concentrated, then injected into the source of your hip pain. Then they go to work, replicating and regenerating new cells to heal your injury.
  • Prolotherapy: Prolotherapy achieves the same results using a different method: your doctor injects a solution that contains safe ingredients such as dextrose and saline. When injected, they trigger a healing response, causing growth factors to migrate to the area and repair tissues.


You don’t need to settle for ongoing hip pain just because traditional treatments haven’t produced results. To get relief with regenerative therapies, call Bluetail Medical Group or book an appointment online.
