The Compass Pain and Spine can diagnose the source of hip pain during a comprehensive history, physical examination, and imaging such as Xray, CT scan or MRI.

If you have arthritis in your hip, platelet rich plasma therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help your body heal itself. PRP can help your hip feel better and work better.


The differential diagnosis of hip pain is broad, presenting a diagnostic challenge. Hip pain is localized to one of three anatomic regions: the anterior hip and groin, the posterior hip and buttock, or the lateral hip.

  • Anterior Hip & Groin Pain: Is commonly associated with intra-articular pathology, such as: osteoarthritis, femoroacetabular impingement, fractures and hip labral tears.
  • Posterior Hip Pain: Is associated with piriformis syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, lumbar radiculopathy, facet joint arthritis, and less commonly ischiofemoral impingement and vascular claudication.
  • Lateral Hip Pain: Occurs with greater trochanteric pain syndrome and muscle strains/tears.

The Compass Pain and Spine will correctly diagnose the source of your hip pain. If you are suffering from hip pain, call the office or schedule an appointment online today.


Once your correct diagnosis is established, The Compass Pain and Spine will create a customized plan for you. If the source of pain is determined to be from within the hip, treatment may include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, and temporarily modifying your activities. Trochanteric bursa injections may be offered if you have bursitis and rest/NSAIDs aren’t effective.

We also offer cutting edge regenerative medicine treatments to help heal damaged tissues, restore function, and delay degenerative processes like arthritis. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors that accelerate healing and trigger new tissue growth. Stem cell therapy can produce new healthy cells to repair and replace damaged ones. The Compass Pain and Spine may offer PRP treatment alone or in conjunction with stem cell therapy as an option.‍
