Common Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain stems from a wide range of sources. For some, the cartilage that exists between their hip bones wears down with age. Others, experience sudden traumatic accidents that cause fractures. The most common causes of hip pain seen by our team of Orthopedic Doctors include:
The most common source of hip pain for those treated at AICA Orthopedics – arthritis refers to the natural wear-and-tear that occurs with age. Your hips absorb the majority of your body’s impact as you move throughout your life. The constant exposure to stress and tension causes the ball-and-socket joint to wear out. When this happens, arthritis pain is usually experienced in the front of a patient’s thigh or groin.
Hip fractures tend to occur in patients who are also managing osteoporosis. Common symptoms associated with hip fractures include sharp pain, stiffness, loss of mobility, inflammation, deep bruising, and numbness.
The tendons that connect your muscles to your joints can easily become irritated or inflamed when exhausted. Tendonitis predominantly affects those who are younger and participate in sports or seniors.
