Common Hip Conditions
Hip trauma includes injuries like fractures, dislocations, and labral tears. These injuries can be extremely painful and will require medical attention to ensure proper healing. Hip pain, inability to walk, swelling, and bruising after an activity are signs of a hip injury. For older individuals, falls can lead to lead to hip fractures more often due to the nature of how bones age.
There are many kinds of arthritis that can affect the hip joint, making it difficult to do normal everyday activities. This condition is commonly caused by prolonged wear and tear on the body and symptoms can appear at different ages, depending on the cause. Symptoms of hip arthritis include pain, stiffness, difficulty walking, and even audible sounds when moving the hip joint. Changes in lifestyle and nonsurgical treatments can reduce the pain and discomfort, but surgery may be the most beneficial option if the condition has reached an advanced stage.
