There are no words that can even come close to the gratitude that we have for Dr Diehl and Trish. You were blessed with healing hands and that is exactly what you did for my husband and our family. The reality is that Dr Diehl saved his life. Bless you and your entire team, from the front office staff, to nursing to radiology, to the Trish and Dr Diehl. We were treated amazingly every time we have been in the office or have had contact via phone. This is an amazing office and honestly there aren’t enough kind words to say about everyone there. I hope that you share this with Dr Diehl, your staff and please share this with your patients. The world needs to know what a gift Dr Deihl has. Our deepest heart felt thanks.

Hip Fractures

Hip fractures can happen to anyone and are very serious because of their location.  Symptoms may consist of swelling, pain, and discoloration. Other more serious symptoms include the inability to move the leg or the affected leg seeming shorter.  If you believe you have fractured your hip, seek immediate attention and be still until help comes.

Arthritic Hip

Arthritis is the most common cause of chronic hip pain.  Thousands of Americans suffer from an arthritic hip.  This disease can keep one from performing their routine daily activities.

There are three types of arthritis that generally affect the hip:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis

This is the most common form of arthritis in which the cartilage that protect the hip joint wears out. Cartilage cannot be repaired or replaced, but physical therapy can improve the range of motion and reduce pain.

Common symptoms of osteoarthritis of the hip:

  • Groin pain
  • Severe hip pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness, especially in the morning
  • Limited movement
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

When osteoarthritis is present, the cartilage is not being provided with enough lubrication and nourishment. This leads to loss of motion, stiffness, and pain.

Osteonecrosis

Osteonecrosis is a disease that causes severe aches and pains and results from lack of blood supply to the bone. Most commonly affecting the femoral head, the bone receives inadequate blood supply and eventually dies. This disease is most commonly caused by a dislocation or fracture but has also been associated with traumatic injury, excessive consumption of alcohol, and steroid use.

Common Hip Injuries

Common types of hip injuries, which can cause swelling, stiffness, and pain:

  • Tendinitis (tendonitis) – inflammation of tendon or surrounding area
  • Bursitis – painful inflammation in the hip that causes tenderness and pain when touched or moved
  • Contusions – bruises that appear after trauma to the hip area
  • Sprains – the stretching of hip ligaments

Treating Hip Pain

In some cases, conservative treatments may include physical therapy, bracing, or injections. However, if the hip pain is not responding to conservative treatments, then hip surgery may be recommended.  Hip surgery may include:

  • Minimally-Invasive Surgery
  • Hip Replacement Surgery

Additional Conditions We Treat:

  • Knee Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Hand and Wrist Pain
  • Elbow Pain
  • Foot and Ankle Pain
