Hip Pain/Injury

Orthopedic Care for Hip Pain/Injury

When it comes to pain and injuries, the hip is one of the most common areas that might be impacted. The majority of your lower body movement is impacted by the state of your hips. Hip pain or injury can be caused by many elements, but it can also result in many issues. Most commonly, you will feel pain in your groin or hip area – if the pain is outside of these areas, you might be dealing with an injury to your tendons, muscles, ligaments, or other tissues in and around your hip.

Symptoms

The most common symptom when it comes to hip injuries is pain. Pain in the area (with or without an injury) is usually an indication that you may have a hip condition. Sudden swelling, signs of infection (fevers, redness, and chills), deformed joints, weakness, and lack of support on your legs are other symptoms of a hip injury.

Causes and Risk Factors

Although most hip pain is a natural result of aging, sudden hip pain may be caused by an injury, disease, degenerative bone ailments, and arthritis. Hip fractures, hip sprains, hip bursitis, and osteoporosis are other common injuries that may result in hip pain. Because there are so many different causes of hip pain, and because the hips are so important to mobility, it is best to seek medical advice if you are suffering from any pain in your hips.

Treatment and Prevention

The most important step in dealing with hip pain is to seek out medical aid. Although it might be a simple strain or otherwise easy-to-deal with injury in your hip, the pain might be indicative of something deeper. Especially if the pain doesn’t go away on its own within a few weeks, reaching out to a doctor will help determine the cause, and eventual treatment.

There are a variety of treatment options available for hip pain, including everything from over the counter pain medications to physical therapy to even hip surgery.

Takeaway
