Discussing Hip Pain

Symptoms of Hip Pain

Depending on your condition or injury, hip pain can take many forms. So, it is important to understand the indicators of hip pain and what they can lead to. However, it is important to know that each pain is not exclusive, and you can experience multiple pains at once. If you have any questions or queries, contact our physio at Falcon Health today.


There are a few different symptoms that may indicate you are experiencing hip pain. These can include:

- Pain in the groin area

- Pain in the outside of the hip

- Pain in the inside of the hip

- Pain that radiates down the leg

- Stiffness or decreased range of motion in the hip joint

- Clicking, snapping or grinding noises coming from the hip joint


Types of Hip Pain

There are a few different types of hip pain that our physio can help you with

1. Outer Hip Pain

This type of hip pain is usually caused by problems with the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your hip. It can also be caused by bursitis, which is an inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between your bones and muscles.

2. Inner Hip Pain

This type of hip pain is usually caused by problems with the bones or joints in your hip. It can also be caused by tendonitis, which is an inflammation of the tendons in your hip.

3. Groin Pain

Groin pain is a type of inner hip pain that occurs when there is a problem with the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your groin. It can also be caused by hernias, which are bulges in your abdominal muscles that push through weak spots in your muscle tissue.

4. Pelvic Pain

Pelvic pain is a type of groin pain that occurs when there is a problem with the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your pelvis. It can also be caused by endometriosis, which is a condition in which the tissue that lines your uterus grows outside of your uterus.

5. Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a type of hip pain that occurs when there is a problem with the bones or joints in your lower back. It can also be caused by problems with the muscles, tendons, or ligaments in your lower back.

How Does Hip Pain Occur?

Hip pain can occur for a variety of reasons. It can be the result of an injury, such as a fall or car accident. It can also be the result of overuse, such as from playing sports or lifting heavy objects. Hip pain can also occur due to arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, or other conditions.


Arthritis

Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation of the joints. There are several types of arthritis, but the two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that occurs when the cartilage in the joints breaks down. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body attacks the tissues in the joints. Arthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints.

Tendonitis

The condition, Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons. Tendonitis can be caused by overuse, injury, or infection. It can also be caused by arthritis or other conditions. Furthermore, tendonitis can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected area.


Sprains & Strains

Sprains and strains are common injuries that can cause hip pain. A sprain is an injury to a ligament, which is a tissue that connects two bones. A strain is an injury to a muscle or tendon, which is a tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. Sprains and strains can be caused by overuse, trauma, or poor conditioning. They can also be caused by arthritis or other conditions. Sprains and strains can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in the affected area.
