Hip pain treatment in Atlanta is the topic of Dr. Castanet’s blog post today. Hip pain is a complaint that requires thorough examination, beginning with the exact area of pain. The hip is a large region and “hip” means different areas to different people. It can mean the low back, the flank or loin, the buttock, the lumbosacral region, the trochanteric region, the groin region, the sacroiliac region, the piriformis region and more.

Furthermore, once the area of pain is established, there is a differential diagnosis required to determine the actual pathology responsible for the pain. This is not usually straightforward since the referred pain patterns of various pathologies can overlap and be misleading. Figuring this out requires an astute, experienced clinician, mindful of Ockham’s razor. Dr. Castanet is exceptionally good at this skill because his uniquely effective treatment has elucidated many referred pain patterns that can only be learned when one has an effective treatment tool that proves diagnostic.

Effective treatment is a critical tool to diagnosis in musculoskeletal medicine. This is a particular truism in musculoskeletal medicine, where referred pain is so tricky in diagnosis.
