The activities of our daily lives keep us busy to move our bodies at all times. Our hips are a very important part of the movement. To avoid wear and tear, our hip is guided by cartilage that helps prevent friction as the hipbone moves in its socket.
Despite its durability, the hip joint is not indestructible. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Bones in the hip can break during a fall or other injury. Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain.
If your hips are sore, the discomfort might be caused by:
- Hip fractures
- Muscle or tendon strain
- Hip labral tear
- Avascular necrosis (also called osteonecrosis)
Arthritis. Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are among the most common causes of hip pain, especially in older adults. The main causes of arthritis are:
- wear and tear of a joint from overuse
- autoimmune disorders
- genes or family history
- muscle weakness
Symptoms of Hip Pain
Hip pain is usually is comforting in the:
- Inside of the hip joint
- Outside of the hip joint
Sometimes pain from other areas of the body, such as the back or groin (from a hernia), can radiate to the hip.
You might notice that your pain gets worse with activity, especially if it’s caused by arthritis. Along with the pain, you might have a reduced range of motion. Some people develop a limp from persistent hip pain.
