What causes pain in your hip?
People active in sports activities are likely to encounter pain from sports injuries. Besides, if you are an older individual, you are at risk of a bone fracture which contributes to the pain around your hip.
Dr. Muradov and the team at Integrity Orthopedics offer productive solutions for your pain, including arthroscopic surgery.
The pain in your hip usually results from the following.
Hip fractures commonly happen on your thigh bone, where the femur meets the hip joint. Senior people are likely to experience hip fractures due to weakened bones.
Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that provide cushions to your joints. When they swell, they cause a painful condition called bursitis.
Trochanteric bursitis is a type of hip bursitis that leads to pain in your outer hip. The pain becomes severe when you sit on the hurt side.
This condition grows over some time of degeneration of the cartilage shielding the hip joint. Without the protection, the bones are in contact with each other, causing inflammation, friction, and discomfort.
Hip tendonitis destroys the connective tissues that join the muscles with the hip bones. The condition usually arises from too much use, causing tendon inflammation and the tearaway of the tissues after some time.
Pain in your pains may also result from a spine problem or a sacroiliac joint dysfunction, known as referred back pain.
