Non-operative hip loose bodies treatment

Loose bodies are little bits of bone or cartilage that have broken off and are in a joint, thanks to trauma or just wearing out. If your hip can move, the pain from loose bodies can be treated without surgery.

Loose bodies can move around in your hip. They can get stuck in place and make it difficult for you to move your hip, and they can cause pain.

If you can still move your hip, ice, medication, steroid injections, and physical therapy can help with the pain. If the pain is too much or you can’t use your hip, you may need surgery.
