Hip pain and can stretch anywhere from your lower back to your upper thighs. Every part of your body goes through a lot of action to keep up with your active lifestyle. Your hip supports the weight of your entire upper body in static as well as in dynamic conditions. The hip joint, that joins the femur(upper thigh bone) and the pelvis plays a very important role in maintaining and balancing your body posture in any position.
Hip pain symptom is the sensation of discomfort in or around the hip joint. Hip pain symptoms may include limping, loss of motion of the hip, groin pain, swelling over the hip, joint pain, etc.
When you use the hip in dynamic conditions like running, a cushion of cartilage helps to prevent friction as the hip bone moves in the socket of the joint. No matter how durable your body is, it isn’t indestructible. Hip pain causes may include the cartilage protecting the hip bone from becoming damaged or wearing down with age and use. Other parts like tendons and muscles in the hip region can get damaged too due to overuse or injury giving rise to various types of hip pain.
Bones in the hip can even break during a serious injury. Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain. If your hip pain is more gradual in onset refusing to respond to rest or ice, it might be time to seek help from professional hip pain treatments that can range from medications to hip pain physical therapy.
