Hip Pain Q & A

What are the signs of hip pain?

Hip pain isn’t uncommon among kids and adults alike. The hips are strong joints that take on a lot of stress daily, which leaves them vulnerable to wear-and-tear and injury.

Some hip pain comes on suddenly after a traumatic injury, while other hip problems create pain that builds over time. Other than pain, signs and symptoms of a hip problem include the following:

  • Tenderness around the joint
  • Weakness
  • Clicking or snapping sounds
  • Pain in the groin or buttocks
  • Decreased range-of-motion
  • Deformity around the hip

Some hip conditions make sleeping on the affected side difficult at night. The symptoms of a hip problem may come and go or be constant, depending on the root cause.

Hip pain that’s severe enough to interfere with someone’s everyday activities is a cause for concern. Anyone dealing with severe hip pain should seek evaluation and treatment from the team at Orthopaedic Specialists of Dallas.

What conditions cause hip pain?

Hip pain can be due to an injury or chronic condition that leads to damage within the hip joint. Some of the conditions the team at Orthopaedic Specialists of Dallas treats include the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Muscles strains
  • Dislocations
  • Fractures
  • Iliotibial band syndrome

Some people have genetic hip conditions such as developmental dysplasia of the hip or impingement that are sometimes evident at birth.

No matter the cause of hip pain, it’s essential to seek treatment if the pain doesn’t go away on its own with home care and rest after several days.

How is hip pain treated?

The team treats hip pain based on the patient’s symptoms and the cause of the problem. The team carefully evaluates each patient to provide customized treatment plans for long-term relief.

Some of the treatment methods the practice offers to patients experiencing hip pain include:

  • Rest, ice, compression, elevation
  • Physical therapy
  • Steroid injections
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Pain medications

In severe cases of hip arthritis or injury, the team may recommend surgery to fix the problem. A hip replacement or fracture repair provides the patient stability and increased range of motion after recovery.
