Transient Synovitis of the Hip | Diagnosis & Tests


How will my doctor be able to tell that my child has transient synovitis of the hip?

Your doctor will look at your child's hip to find out what kind of movement makes the pain worse. Your doctor may order blood tests and X-rays. These tests will help your doctor make sure that the cause of hip pain isn't caused by something more serious.
