At The BSW Hip Preservation Center, we perform intra-articular injections guided by fluoroscopy for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. This technique has been proven to be effective at diagnosing the precise location of a patient’s pain, as well as providing some temporary relief of pain.
Physical therapy is an integral part of the treatment plans provided at the BSW Hip Preservation Center. The goal of physical therapy is to decrease patients’ pain, increase their strength, the range of motion and improve balance. We work with a select group of physical therapists to ensure that our patients are participating in rehabilitation with therapists who understand and follow the protocols that are prescribed.

D Magazine profile
Hip anatomy can be broken down into four layers; the osseous, capsulolabral, musculotendinous, and neurovascular. Detailed study of each layer individually and collectively provide the basics of hip pathology.
The hip is the link between the lower body and the upper body. The biomechanics of surrounding joints can affect the hip, just as the hip can affect surrounding joint biomechanics. The inter-relationship of neighboring joints and the four layers of the hip are thought of as the fifth layer, the kinematic chain.
The puzzle of hip pathology begins with the presentation of hip pain. A thorough History and Physical Examination of the presenting problem provides a solid background in which to cast the shadow of hip pathology.
Traditional and novel techniques for the quantitative analysis of all five layers of the hip help shape the puzzle of hip pathology.
The best course of treatment is individualized according to the patient's Anatomy, Biomechanics, Clinical Presentation, and Diagnostic analysis. A number of hip arthroscopic and endoscopic procedures exist and the proper surgical treatment options must be scrutinized.
The heart of the hip pathology puzzle lies in the patient outcomes. Improving patient pain and function is the ultimate goal of hip preservation. In order to understand the "why" and "why not" of good outcomes leads us back into the cycle of understanding the A-B-C-Ds.
