The hip joint is a ball and socket joint that demands both strength and flexibility to function well. Properly functioning hips allow us to walk, jump and bend successfully.
Common Hip Pain Sources
The hip is home to similar anatomical structures found in other major joints of the body: cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles come together to support the body's weight and provide for stability and movement of the body. A stable joint, the hip typically requires tremendous force to become seriously injured however overuse injuries from playing sports or a high level of activity are quite common.
Disease can also create pain and dysfunction in the hip joint. Osteoarthritis or “wear and tear" degenerative arthritis is perhaps the most common typically showing up later in life. This disease often presents as pain with normal activity that progressively becomes worse. When the pain of osteoarthritis prohibits you from performing and/or enjoying your normal activities of daily living, it is wise to see a qualified orthopedic hip surgeon to discuss your treatment options.
