Exploring treatment options for hip pain


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) When the Winter Games start on February 6, we are sure to see some incredible feats of physical endurance and fitness. But it’s good to know for most of us, the aches and pains we may feel from sitting all day or getting a little too used to lifting that shovel can be addressed by an outstanding medical team.

Dr. Olusanjo Adeoye of the Spectrum Health Medical Group is the only orthopaedic surgeon in West Michigan fellow-shop trained in hip arthroscopy and preservation and specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery.

Dr. Adeoye explains that hip preservation presents a variety of treatment options for active adults dealing with hip pain. He says the pain can develop from every day tasks like shoveling snow or gardening for a long period of time.

Symptoms of hip pain/hip impingement:

  • Discomfort in front of hip
  • Stiffness in groin, front of thigh
  • Loss of full range of motion
  • Tightness in hips
  • Constant dull ache or catching
  • Sharp, popping sensation

Non-surgical treatment to reduce hip pain and swelling include rest, activity modification, physical therapy, and anti-inflammatory medications.
