Hip pain can seriously disrupt how you live your life. Your hip is the largest joint in your body, consisting of a ball (the femoral head at the top of your thigh bone) and a socket (the acetabulum, a hollow in your pelvis).
Tendons, ligaments, and muscles secure the bones, with a ring of cartilage (the labrum) holding the ball in the socket. This joint construction allows for movement and a wide range of motion while keeping your hip stable.
If your hip joint suffers an injury or develops a disease, the resulting pain can stop you from performing everyday activities. It can also interfere with your ability to get a good night’s sleep.
Hip pain can result from an injury or disease that causes inflammation in the joint. Some common causes of hip pain include:
Although arthritis takes many forms, osteoarthritis is most likely to give you hip pain. It’s a wear-and-tear condition that develops in mid to late life, causing steadily worsening pain, stiffness, and loss of function. Another common type is the autoimmune disorder rheumatoid arthritis.
Bursae are small sacs of fluid that protect and cushion your joints. Bursitis is inflammation in the bursae, typically resulting from overuse. In the hips, the bursae on the outer aspect of the hip (the trochanter) are the most common source of pain.
Tendons are the elastic tissues that attach your muscles to your bones. Vigorous activity or a fall could strain the tendon, while repeated movements over a prolonged period could irritate and inflame the tissue, causing tendonitis.
