Hip Necrosis

Osteonecrosis of the hip develops when the blood supply to the femoral head is disrupted. Without adequate nourishment, the bone in the head of the femur dies and gradually collapses. As a result, the articular cartilage covering the hip bones also collapses, leading to disabling arthritis. Eventually, you might feel the pain even when you're lying down. Pain can be mild or severe. It usually develops gradually. Pain associated with avascular necrosis of the hip might center on the groin, thigh or buttock. BreakingThrough San Diego Physical Therapy offer ESWT , which is a safe and effective treatment for early hip necrosis.  Call us to make an appointment or simply ask for details.
