Pain in your hip can vary greatly in type and intensity, from sharp and severe to a mild ache. A wide range of issues can cause hip pain, including:
The most common types of arthritis to affect the hip include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Hip pain from osteoarthritis usually worsens with activity and improves with rest, while hip pain from rheumatoid arthritis may lessen with activity.
Hip fractures are especially common in older adults who have a bone condition called osteoporosis. This causes the bones to become weak and brittle, leading to frequent fractures.
Bursitis involves inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that cushion your hip joint. Iliopsoas bursitis is a common cause of hip pain along the front of the thigh or groin area, especially in runners and soccer players.
Pain on the outside of your hip is most likely due to muscle or tendon strain. Hip flexor strains are common sports injuries that result from overuse.
This condition results from abnormal bone growth in the hip joint. FAI can restrict the range of motion in your hip and potentially lead to osteoarthritis or hip labrum tears.
Mild hip pain may resolve with home care remedies, such as rest, over-the-counter pain relievers, and ice or heat. If your hip pain continues despite attempts at-home treatment, schedule an appointment at Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C.
First, your provider at Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C. reviews your symptoms and medical history. They carefully examine your hip and may take tests, such as an X-ray or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
