The hip is quite stable and requires a major force to cause a dislocation. Hips are more subjected to joint and/or bone damage than other areas of the body. As a weight-bearing joint, it is commonly affected by degenerative changes and fracture in senior patients in IL. Conditions such as infant congenital disorders, adolescent trauma, adolescent growth plate or elderly fracture, are less likely determinants of hip pain than age itself.
Pain can be deceiving – especially in the hip area as many patients may be experiencing this pain as a direct result of low back issues or buttocks problems. The internal structure of the hip joint, or other surrounding bones, can be causing a patient’s hip pain. A common traumatic history for hip pain is a fall onto the hip, says Dr. Jason Fennema DC. The fall can cause injuries in the soft tissue of the hip, including contusion (trochanteric bursitis). Very often with hip pain, the pain is worse during activity and relieved by rest.
