Paris Orthopedics and Sports Medicine specializes in the treatment of hip pain and hip injuries. In many cases, hip pain that occurs along the outside of the hip is associated with the soft tissues that surround the hip joint, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments. At times, hip pain may be associated with the lower back or sacroiliac joints. In order to determine the source of your pain, the hip experts at Paris Orthopedics will consider many factors, such as location of your pain, hip mobility, and severity of pain.
