Hip Pain

Your hip is made up of a ball and socket joint, connecting the top of your femur to your pelvic bones, allowing it to swivel. If you have been suffering from hip pain, it can either be caused by problems within the joint itself or by the surrounding structures. The exact location of your pain will help your BackFit Health + Spine Doctor’s pinpoint the underlying cause.

Common Causes of Hip Pain

If the pain is on the inside of your groin or hip, it is most likely going to be caused by issues inside your hip joint. However, if the pain is on your upper buttock, thigh, or the outside of your hip, that pain is typically caused by injuries to the soft tissues surrounding the joints. If neither of these areas is the cause your pain, you may be suffering from referred pain, which occurs when a condition or injury in your spine sends pain signals to another part of your body.

The more common conditions that may be causing your hip pain are:

  • Osteoarthritis. This is the most common form of arthritis and is caused by the cartilage surrounding your bones breaking down. It can affect any bone in your body but is most common in hands, knees, hips, and the spine.
  • Herniated Disc. Your spine is made up of vertebrae, with soft discs in between them. When one of these discs slips out of place, the surrounding nerves become irritated and cause pain. When the herniated disc is in your lower back, the pain can be referred to your hips.

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
