Pain in the hip region with walking, especially with stairs, can result from soft tissue problems in the hip or from arthritis of the hip or even a combination of both. You might also notice a tight and painful hip in yoga practice or even crossing your legs.
First, I’ll determine the origin of your hip pain and then I’ll use a combination of therapies to help eliminate your pain and improve your range of motion.
I also work closely with Dr. Craig Dushey at Mt. Sinai, a hip and knee orthopedic specialist. If necessary to clarify the diagnosis, we’ll arrange for an x-ray and orthopedic evaluation of your hip.
