Chronic Hip Pain - Symptoms and Treatments in NYC
The hip joint allows for repetitive motion and seamless movement of its surrounding structures and is cushioned by cartilage that protects the joint from the effects of friction.
Factors such as advanced age, injury, some health conditions, joint stress due to overuse, and even regular wear-and-tear of the joint can cause the protective cartilage to deteriorate and allow painful bone friction to occur.
When the hip joint becomes inflamed and the protective cartilage wears down, the patient will experience pain, stiffness, as well as difficulty or inability to move and perform everyday activities.
Pain that originates because of injury or dysfunction in the hip joint can also radiate to the thigh, groin, and buttock area, affecting the patient’s normal range of motion, resulting in limited mobility, limping, or inability to walk. This is a common occurrence in elderly patients, however all age groups are susceptible to hip injury, notably highly active individuals who engage in strenuous physical activity, such as runners or athletes.
