Common causes of Hip Pain

Trochanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, a fluid-filled sac near the lateral point of the hip joint known as the greater trochanter. When this bursa becomes irritated or inflamed, it causes pain in the hip. This is a common cause of hip pain.

 

Treatment of hip pain must be directed at the specific cause of your problem. Some signs that you should be seen by a doctor include: 

 

  • Inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
  • Injury that causes deformity around the joint
  • Hip pain that occurs at night or while resting
  • Hip pain that persists beyond a few days
  • Inability to bend the hip
  • Swelling of the hip or the thigh area
  • Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth
  • Any other unusual symptoms

Causes

One of the common causes is injury to the lateral point of the hip, which includes

  • falling onto the hip,
  • bumping the hip into an object, or
  • lying on one side of the body for an extended period.

Also playing or working activities that cause overuse or injury to the joint areas including running up stairs, climbing, or standing for long periods of time. Some spinal conditions such as incorrect posture caused by scoliosis, arthritis of the lumbar spine and other spine problems are also some causes.

 

Treatments

Treatments include a combination of rest, splints, heat and cold application.More Advanced treatments include : 

Physical therapy. Strengthening the muscles around your hip will make it more stable. Training is likely to focus on the muscles on the hip. Exercises to improve your balance are also important.

Corticosteroids. Injections of a corticosteroid drug into your hip joint may help reduce the symptoms of bursitis and provide pain relief that lasts a few months. The injections aren’t effective in all cases. There is a small risk of infection.

Surgery will be advised if other treatments have not been effective.
