Your doctor may have prescribed you medications such as muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, painkillers, or offered an injection. These “treatments” may provide temporary pain relief, but they do not provide a permanent solution to your pain.

There are tons of products out there that are marketed to “treat hip pain.” However, the majority of these products and supplements are not backed by real scientific research.

Practice caution before purchasing any device or supplement that claims to treat hip problems.

Hip replacement surgery is sometimes successful in treating severe cases of hip pain that impair your movement and interferes with your sleep and daily activities.

The main issues with hip replacement surgery are that it:

  • It’s the most invasive form of treatment
  • Requires a lot of recovery time post-surgery
  • Usually does not permanently fix your hip problem
