The term hip pain can refer to any form of pain or discomfort in the hip region. The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and considerable wear and tear, especially since it’s the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint. You may suffer from hip pain because of the overuse, wearing away, or damage of the cartilage, muscles, tendons, and other components of the hip region. Dr. Patel diagnoses and treats the root cause of hip pain using the safest non-surgical treatment options.
Symptoms of Hip Pain:
- Pain and discomfort in the hip regions, thighs, groin, or buttocks
- Radiating pain from the back or groin
- Worsening symptoms with activities
- Reduced range of motion in the hip region
- Limp from excessive and persistent hip pain
Possible Causes of Hip Pain:
- Arthritis: Hip pain may occur because of arthritic conditions, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. These conditions may lead to an inflammation of the hip joint and a wearing away of the cartilage in the hips, leading to hip pain and stiffness.
- Fractures: As you grow older, your hip joints and bones may weaken and develop fractures, especially if you have conditions like osteoporosis. You may also develop hip fractures because of falls and injuries.
- Bursitis: The bursae are sacs of fluid located between the bones, tendons, and muscles. If the bursae in the hip region become inflamed, they can’t ease the friction caused by the muscles and tendons rubbing together, leading to hip pain.
- Tendinitis: The tendons are connective tissues that attach the bones to the muscles. If the tendons are inflamed or irritated because of repetitive stress, you may develop the symptoms of tendinitis in your hips.
- Strains/ Sprains: You may develop hip pain because of strains and sprains of the muscles and ligaments that support the hips. The inflammation of the muscles and ligaments can lead to severe hip pain and loss of mobility.
- Labral Tears: The labrum is a ring of cartilage on the outer rim of the hip joint’s socket. When the labrum is torn, you experience hip pain and decreased mobility in the hips. This is common amongst people who perform repeated twisting movements.
