Almost 27 million people in the United States have osteoarthritis in the hip, and about 60% of them are women. CuraLase approaches hip pain by conducting a careful screening interview with a qualified practitioner. The screening will determine the correct protocol for patient care. This is an important step in making sure that the patient does not have an acute problem requiring urgent medical attention.
Pain in the hip is commonly divided into two groups; 1- Hip bursitis presents as pain on the sides of the hip (lateral hip pain) and 2- Hip joint pain is experienced in the anterior part (the groin) and the buttock.
Hip joint pain is often the result of arthritic development, degenerative change, wear, injury or over use. The pain may start gradually and be intermittent, but will become more prevalent and uncomfortable over time.
Patients will notice pain relief starting a couple of weeks after finishing treatment protocol.
