3 Reasons Why You Suffer From Hip Pain And How To Help

The hip is the largest ball-and-socket joint in the body and it allows us to have fluid movement when being active. Despite its durability, the hip joint isn’t indestructible and with age, the cartilage can wear down or become severely damaged. This can lead to chronic hip pain and hinder your ability to move freely. If you suffer from hip pain or aches, here are 3 reasons why you may be feeling discomfort and how to alleviate the pain. 

Common Causes Of Hip Pain

Arthritis

One of the most common causes of long-term hip pain is arthritis. There are various types of arthritis and they can cause pain, stiffness, or trouble walking. Osteoarthritis usually stems from the age-related wearing of the cartilage around the joints and can cause great pain or discomfort when it occurs in the hip. Another form of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis which is due to the body’s immune system attacking the joints. It’s important to check with your doctor to determine if and what type of arthritis is causing your hip pain.

Hip Fractures

Hip fractures are more common in older adults especially those with osteoporosis, which weakens the bones with age. Hip fractures bring sudden, intense pain and require immediate medical attention. Although hip fracture pain is sharp, some people never get it examined which is dangerous as hip fractures can lead to blood clots in the leg. Whether you feel intense pain or slight discomfort, you should seek a medical examination to ensure you don’t need surgery. 

Snapping Hip Syndrome

Although snapping hip syndrome is less common than arthritis or hip fractures, it’s still a serious problem that can lead to severe hip pain. Snapping hip syndrome is most common in dancers and athletes, and is characterized by a snapping sound or feeling within the hip. This snapping can also occur in everyday life such as when you get up from your chair or go for a walk. The condition is usually painless but it can lead to further hip complications or pain in the future. It’s usually a sign of cartilage tear in the hip and should also be medically examined. 

What Are The Treatment Options?

The treatment for hip pain will differ from case to case. For most exercise-related pains, rest and rehab should be enough to heal the hip. However, for those with more serious conditions, medical attention may be needed to alleviate pain and fix the underlying cause. Some Doctors may prescribe you pain-relieving medicine, which effectively masks the problem. At other clinics we may recommend regenerative procedures, along with rehabilitative strengthening exercises. This approach makes it so that the symptoms resolve, but also with the regenerative approach the damaged tissues are healed allowing for a more permanent cure.
