Hip

Hip pain can result from a condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, or of a recent hip injury, such as a hip fracture or hip dislocation. In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions such as hip bursitis and hip arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making procedures like hip arthroplasty and hip replacement surgery credible options for relieving your hip pain.

The most frequent causes for pain in the hip can be related to an orthopaedic condition that has emerged over time. Signs and symptoms of hip pain include:

  • Joint pain felt in the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, in the groin, or over the buttock area
  • Discomfort and swelling in the thigh and knee
  • Joint inflammation or hip muscle spasms, which may cause fluid accumulation in the hip joint
  • Limping or the inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
  • Inability to bend or rotate the hip
  • Soreness and/or throbbing while sleeping or resting
  • Fever, redness, and warmth—which are signs of infection

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you may have a hip condition, such as hip osteoarthritis, hip bursitis, hip arthritis, or an injury like a fractured hip, dislocated hip, hip flexor injury, or labral tear.

Tips for Healthy Joints

As the connections between your bones, your hip joint will sustain a certain amount of wear and tear as we age. Remaining pain- and arthritis-free requires practicing good hip joint preservation techniques. The following techniques will help you to treat your hip joints with care as they age.

Movement

Every day, move your hip joints through their full range of motion to sustain mobility and freedom from pain. Make sure your movements are slow and gentle to avoid injury and be careful not to overextend.

Use

Be sure to extend and flex your hip joints in the manner for which they are intended. Avoid overextending or stressful positions as well as techniques that could put you at risk for injury.

Posture

The manner in which you carry your body has a significant impact on whether your hip joints will remain pain-free. Practice good posture by adjusting workspaces to your specifications.

Stay Active

Avoid keeping your hip joints in the same position for a prolonged period of time. This will help to keep your hip joints from becoming stiff. In situations where this cannot be avoided, such as car rides, take a break every hour to stretch and adjust your seating position.
