Hip pain can be caused by many different factors and should first be discussed with a primary physician, chiropractor, and/or physical therapist. The hip joint is a large joint where the leg joins the pelvis. If this joint experiences arthritis, injury or mechanical stress, one may experience hip, buttock, leg or low back pain. AMI’s diagnostic radiologists can use scans to help locate the cause of the pain. Once the issue is determined, Advanced Medical Imaging offers many different minimally invasive treatments that can provide relief without the long recovery times of traditional surgery.

Hip tendonitis is caused by overworking or straining the tendons that connect the hip bones to the gluteal muscles. This is common in people who consistently lift weight of any kind or do any type of repetitive motions affecting the hip. This strain causes microscopic tears in the tendons, causing swelling and pain.
