Severe Hip Pain Is More Than A Drag

If you’ve ever dealt with severe hip pain, you know how it can make you drag…literally. This type of pain is rather common and can be caused by a variety of different reasons.

To start, let’s clarify that severe hip pain isn’t something that goes away easily with ice or heat, a little Tylenol, and rest. Of course, people who deal with hip problems may use those three tactics to minimize the pain and try to recoup after a particularly active day – or even after a day of sedentary activity.

But for folks who have hip problems that go beyond a little over the counter TLC, what are the causes and how can it be treated?

Let’s dive in and discuss this common pain in the… gluteus maximus, if you will. (Hey, a little anatomy humor never hurt anyone!) Before we go running right into a hip replacement, let’s take a look at other suggestions to treat hip pain.

Hip Injuries: Causes & More

Over time, our hip cartilage wears down, which then causes friction for your hipbones. So, from athletes dealing with hip injuries to the elderly to anyone suffering pain from a fall or other injury, this type of pain is common and can require care.

First things first: locating where hip injuries lie is extremely helpful!

1- Problems in the hip joint? This type of pain will radiate on the inside of your groin and/or hip.

2-Pain on your upper thighs or outer buttock? That could be due to problems with the soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, and tendons surrounding your hip joint.

3- Pervasive pain? Diseases and conditions in your lower back or other areas of your body can also cause hip pain. We call this referred pain.

The fact is there are many issues that can come with those hips of ours! From fractured hipbones, to muscle and tendon issues, our hips don’t lie: When they hurt, they hurt!

Here are some of the common hip issues that you or someone you know may be dealing with that goes beyond just a sore hip:

  • Arthritis – Arthritic conditions such as Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are among the most common causes of hip pain, especially in older adults.
  • Hip Fractures
  • Bursitis in Hip – Inflammation of the small, fluid-filled sacs (called bursae) that protect muscles and tendons.
  • Tendonitis – Tendonitis is inflammation or irritation of the tendons.
  • Muscle or Tendon Strain
  • Avascular Necrosis (also called Osteonecrosis) – This condition occurs when blood flow to the hip bones are reduced and the bone tissue dies as a result.
  • And more!
