What are my Hip Treatment Options?


The goal of any hip treatment is to relieve pain and to restore movement to your joint. Non-surgical methods are an option, but if pain persists, your doctor might order X-Ray images to look at the bones. After reviewing the images, your doctor may decide that a total hip replacement is the best option for you if the joint itself is diseased.1

The appropriate treatment approach for hip disorders or injuries depends on a variety of factors such as the level of joint damage, age and overall health condition.

Types of hip therapies include:


  • Medication
  • Rest
  • Physical Therapy
  • Walking Aids
  • Hip Exercises


  • Hip Surface Replacement (Hip Resurfacing)
  • Total Hip Replacement (THR)
