Hip Injury & Pain

Hip Injury & Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint that can affect anyone, young or old. Many problems can cause this pain. The location of the hip pain can provide essential clues about the underlying cause. Hip pain can occur anywhere in or around the hip joint. However, it may also appear in other body parts, such as the groin, thigh, or knee. This condition is called referred hip pain.

Symptoms & Causes of ​Hip Injury & Pain

We can experience hip pain anywhere around the hip joint or other body parts such as the groins, thighs or knees (referred hip pain).

 

The symptoms of hip injury & pain are:

  • Limping

  • Pain in groin or upper thigh

  • Hip pain till the knees

  • Sharp or stabbing pain

  • Weakness or stiffness around the hip

  • Swelling in the hip

  • Trouble sleeping due to the compression on the hip

  • Perthes Disease (a condition that may occur in growing children between the age of 4 to 10. It is characterised as a temporary loss of blood supply to the hip. The ‘ball’ in the hip’s socket becomes inadequate, causing the bone to break down without an adequate blood supply.)

The hip very essential to keep us able to stand and sit upright and mobile because it is one of the most stable joints in the body. Pain in the muscles, tendons, or bursae (fluid-filled cavities that cushion the joints) can be caused because most of our body’s weight rests on the hip.
