Hip pain refers to pain in and around the hip area. The pain in this area can be from arthritis, weak muscles or bursitis. The hip is the largest joint in the body and when it is not working well your life can be very limited.
The hip joint attaches the leg to the torso of the body. In the hip joint, the head of the thighbone (femur) swivels in a socket, called the acetabulum, that is made up of pelvic bones. While many causes of hip pain can arise from the joint itself, there are numerous structures surrounding the hip that can also be the source of pain.
Trauma is often the cause of hip pain, but any source of inflammation may cause pain in the hip area. Pain is one of the symptoms of inflammation, along with swelling, warmth, and redness; together these are signals that a problem may exist.
Hip pain is common problem, and it can be confusing because there are many causes. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis of the cause of your symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be directed at the underlying problem. If you have hip pain, some common conditions include:
- THROCHANTERIC BURSITIS
- TENDONITIS:If your hip pain is concentrated in your groin area or the front or side, tendonitis is likely the cause. Tendons are the thick fibrous bands that attach a muscle to bone.Tendons typically get inflamed from overuse, especially if you do a lot of repetitive movements. For example, kicking a ball often strains tendons and leads to hip pain if you play soccer. Tendonitis is more common among adults over 40 because tendons are less elastic with age and less capable of absorbing stress.
- ILIOTIBIAL BAND SYNDROME (ITBS)
- MUSCLE STRAIN
- HIP FRACTURE
- AVASCULAR NECROSIS (AVN)
