Your provider may decide to treat your hip discomfort non-operatively. There are many options including medications, such as anti-inflammatory medications like Aleve (Naproxen Sodium) or Advil (Ibuprofen)
There is also an option of formal therapy with a physical or occupational therapist. Your provider will be able to order this therapy for you and our office will help you find a convenient location.
