Because the human body works hard everyday, it is common to experience occasional pain and discomfort in joints and muscles. While some conditions develop over time, others happen suddenly, causing intense pain and limited mobility. Healthline explains the primary symptoms of a hip strain, which often occurs when an individual is running or walking.

Though pain from a hip strain generally comes on suddenly and is located at the front of the hip, pain increases when a person attempts to lift the thigh towards the chest. Pain also intensifies when a person stretches the hip flexor muscle. In some cases, the hip becomes sore to the touch, while bruising and swelling appears.

What Causes Hip Strain?

Given that a hip strain is directly linked to certain activities and movements, some individuals are more susceptible to this type of injury. Even so, it often occurs as a result of overuse of the hip flexor muscle and tendons. Cyclists, dancers and martial artists are at risk for a hip strain, as well as soccer players and football players (especially kickers). Others that perform repeated movements such as jumping or high knee kicks are also more at risk for a hip strain.

Hip Strain Treatment

When it comes to sprains and strains, traditional treatment centers on rest, cryotherapy, over the counter pain medication and modified exercises or physical therapy.  However, conventional means of treatment take require time. For professional athletes or individuals that rely on physical performance as part of their job, a hip strain can set them back.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to help reduce pain and optimize recovery by harnessing the body’s own healing mechanisms. Dr. Reza Dehdari, industry-leading radiologist and specialist in musculoskeletal interventionist, is proud to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments that initiate natural healing and repair. The minimally-invasive therapy involves drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, extracting the rich plasma, and re-injecting it into the hip joint.

Dr. Reza is a genius. My knee has been bothering me for YEARS since I tore my meniscus playing football. Achy, bothersome, with occasionally a limp. I went into to get PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and it was everything I thought it would be and then some. The whole procedure took less than an hour, very little to no pain and in less than 24 hours my knee felt brand new. If you are looking for a quality Doctor who offers PRP -- go here! The rates are very on point. He is literally THOUSANDS of dollars less than some other clinics and believe me he does such an amazing job, he could charge 10x's and it would still be worth it. Don't sit there suffering, get up and get help. I am actually thinking of getting my other knee done and its not really necessary. Lol.. 10 STARS...

This place is amazing. I took my aunt to Dr. Dehdari since she was in so much pain to her left knee due to Arthritis Dr. Dehdari explained to us about PRP and after the PRP procedure she has no more pain. When we went there she was using a cane but right now she doesn't use it at all. PRP works miracle.

Had the PRP procedure and I have to say no pain at all, going on 6 weeks, if you decide to have the PRP listen to Dr. Dehdari's instructions thoroughly and do the physical therapy, it works and I am so pleased and it's getting better and better as days go on, Dr. Reza Dehdari is the best and very emphatic in explaining all your questions soothing away your doubts, and he checks up on you to make sure all is well, after the PRP procedure. Very trustworthy PRP procedure and his assistant Sandy is also the sweetest caring person you will ever meet. I'm a satisfied customer and patient.

Quite simple experience. Showed up to appointment, I was taken right away to room for PRP injection. Doctor was friendly and willing to try to help me, while many other doctors just told me they did not know what I had and told me they couldn't help my pain and sent me away. Nurse was quite nice as well. Will return for second set of injections for more pain reduction.
