Dear user, history of injury long back and dull chronic pain
(soreness) at the same site after so many years suggest the possibility secondary osteoarthritis
of hip joint. However complete diagnostic work-up like imaging(x-ray or CT) or arthroscopy
is required for confirmation. So kindly consult a good ortho-surgeon.
Treatment option range from - physiotherapy
, exercise, weight loss
, topical (surface) application of pain-relieving ointments to surgical measures like arthroplasty and joint fixation depending upon the severity of symptoms.
Even though some doctors prescribe oral pain killers but their long term use is not recommended due to complications like stomach ulcers and kidney damage.
So please consult an ortho-surgeon.
