Hip problems can intensify and grow into serious pain. A patient having a hip injury cannot enjoy an active life. There are different types of treatment options available for treating hip injuries. Typical hip problems faced by patients include fractures, sports injuries, and joint dislocation.
These are some of the most common symptoms of hip-related injuries.
Here is a look at some common hip injuries occurring in patients.
You may have a problem in associated areas like groin, outside hip joint, buttocks, and thighs.
The hip pain is radiating to the upper and lower parts of the body.
Difficulty in sitting, walking or doing other tasks due to pain in the hips.
A reduced range of motions, especially in arthritis induced related hip injuries.
Hip Bursitis is caused by inflammation of the bursa sac filled with fluid on the outside. This point of the hip is also known as greater trochanter. The inflammation or irritation of the bursa causes severe hip pain.
It is one of the most painful hips related medical conditions. Femoroacetabular impingement happens because of the growth of the extra bone on one or both of the hip joints. This results in the irregular shape of the hip bone, damaging the joint over time, and seriously limiting movement or mobility.
The hip fracture is defined as the breaking of the upper quarter of the femur bone (also known as thigh bone). The hip fracture’s intensity varies with the intensity of which the force hit the bone. The surgery used to treat hip fracture depends on the types of tissues damaged due to the hip fracture.
Gluteal tendinopathy is one of the most commonly occurring type of hip tendonitis. Gluteal is one of the leading causes of Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome. Gluteal tendons are tough. These tendons connect the gluteal muscle to the hip bone.
Hip Labral Tear
This kind of injury involves the ring of cartilage following outside of the hip socket joint. It serves the purpose of providing a cushion to the hip joint, acting as a rubber seal for holding the ball at the top of the thighbone securely within the hip socket. This kind of injury is common to athletes participating in sports like soccer, ice hockey, golf, and football.
