What Is Hip Tendonitis?

A tendon is a strong cord that attaches muscle to bone. When any tendon in the body is irritated or inflamed, it’s known as tendonitis. Hip tendonitis occurs when tendons attached to the bones in the hip joint are affected. This condition is also called hip flexor tendonitis.

Hip tendonitis is one of several conditions that cause hip pain. You have to get the right diagnosis to receive the most effective tendonitis hip flexor treatment. Possible causes of hip pain include:

In NYC and northern New Jersey, Dr. Amr Hosny and the team of spine specialists at the Spine & Rehab Group is your best bet to obtain an accurate diagnosis and customized treatment of hip pain. These experts also treat related conditions, such as knee pain, back pain and neck pain.

What Are the Symptoms of Hip Tendonitis?

Your hips keep you mobile, but they undergo a lot of wear and tear. Pain in the hip that develops gradually over time may be a sign of hip tendonitis. While tendonitis comes on slowly in most cases, some people experience sudden and severe pain. Other symptoms of hip flexor tendonitis include:

You may experience hip stiffness first thing in the morning or after sleeping or sitting in one position. Pain may subside or lessen during the day, but may intensify late in the day. Seek a diagnosis if these symptoms sound familiar to you.

What Causes Tendonitis of the Hip?

Tendons become less flexible and prone to injury as you age. A sudden injury can cause hip tendonitis, but the condition is more commonly caused by repetitive movements over time. Examples of factors that can increase the risk of hip tendonitis include:

Exercising without warming up or not using proper techniques also can strain tendons and muscles. Starting a new sport or a new type of exercise or trying to increase your training duration or intensity too quickly can trigger hip tendonitis.

What’s Involved in Hip Tendonitis Treatment?

To diagnose tendonitis of the hip, your doctor evaluates your hip’s range of motion, joint stability, and flexibility. You may need to have imaging tests done, such as an x-ray or MRI, to help your doctor arrive at an accurate diagnosis and to check for other problems, such as a hip fracture or torn tendon in the hip caused by an accident or sports injury.

Your Spine & Rehab doctor always prefers interventional therapies to treat hip flexor tendonitis that may include:

If your discomfort doesn’t improve with these methods, your spine doctor may recommend that you have a corticosteroid injection. This type of injection can work quickly to decrease pain and inflammation and may relieve pain for a few months. Surgery is rarely recommended for hip tendonitis.

patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I came to the spine and rehab group for my back and leg pain. I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The doctors were very knowledgeable and took time to explain what was causing my pain and answer all my questions. I felt comfortable having my procedure done in their state of the art surgery center, where the staff made you feel at ease. They are very easy to reach and available to answer all your questions.

The entire staff at The Spine & Rehab group is great. They are so helpful and kind. The doctors really take time to talk to their patients and answer any and all of the questions that I had. I've had office visits and procedures done and everyone to the front desk, to the nurses. and the doctors were just great and knowledgeable. They really got me feeling better as well. Since I starting going there my pain has improved greatly! I would recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to everyone!

I always recommend The Spine & Rehab Group to people dealing with pain, I even tell my other doctors what wonderful doctors they are.

Val B.

These days it’s hard to find a professional, yet extremely caring physicians office, particularly in the field of Pain Management. Dr. Hosny, Dr. Chu, physician’s assistant Summer and the entire staff have managed to make this happen. Robin helped me many times with insurance to ensure that I got my shots in a timely manner (Hi Robin!). I’ve been going to this office for about three years and I couldn’t be more pleased!


I went to Dr. Hosny with lower back pain. I spend many hours sitting in a truck for my job. After an hour or so I would get pain in my back. Since I am a truck driver, pain killers were not an option for me. After a few sessions with Dr. Hosny, I am pain free. The staff at New Jersey Pain Care Center and are wonderful and caring people. I would recommend anyone go to Dr. Hosny if they want real results.


I had gone to Dr. Hosny with severe back pain after spinal surgery. It was debilitating pain that stopped me from being able to function normally. Dr. Hosny suggested that I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator implanted in my back. It is the best thing I EVER did. I am so excited to be able to return to my normal life with no medication. My experience at the pain center was wonderful. The nurses were very understanding and kind.


I have had back surgeries that provided me no relief from my pain. After a few treatments with Dr. Hosny, I have almost no discomfort. I have no need for my pain medication anymore, and have been able to go back to working out and enjoying activities with my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the treatment I received at New Jersey Pain Care Center. The staff is very nice, and treats you with respect. The facility is clean, bright and everything is brand new.


I had been having pain in my neck for many years. I had been to other doctors and they all recommended that I have surgery. I was hesitant to get surgery, so I wanted one more opinion. I had a friend tell me about Dr. Hosny and New Jersey Pain Care Center. From the moment I met Dr. Hosny I knew he wasn’t your average doctor. He took the time to listen to my concerns about surgery, and he agreed. After my cervical radiofrequency, I have full range of motion back in my neck, and best of all, no pain.
