Common Types & Causes of Hip Pain
Overcome Hip Pain
The hip joints and muscles are a vital part of how we move and function on a daily basis. Moving from sitting to standing, changing directions, lifting, walking and running all of these activities use your hip joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. When your hip joints are strained or injured, not only can there be significant pain, but your whole daily routine and quality of life is affected.
While there can be many reasons for hip pain here are the most common reasons we see:
- Arthritis causes inflammation or stiffness in the hip joints.
- Tendinitis associated with inflamed tendons due to overuse.
- A hip fracture usually high on the femur near the hip joint.
- Pinched nerves and slipped discs.
- Injuries of hip muscles including sprains, strains or tears.
- Dislocation of the hip joint.
When your pain occurs on the inside of the hip or near the groin area, the pain is often from the hip joint itself. However, if your pain occurs on the outside of your hip, or on the top of your thigh or near the far lower back and outer buttock region, normally the cause is related to a problem in your connective tissue surrounding the hip joint.
Hip pain may occur as secondary pain after a car accident. Because you may have injured your knee or your back you may not notice hip pain right away. Overall any abrupt movement can cause misalignment of your whole body including your hips.
If you are experiencing more than one type of pain recognize that oftentimes the pain can be related. Hip pain should be treated as soon as possible so that you can have the best recovery, with the least amount of risk for chronic pain or disease.
