Why Do I Have Sore Hips?
You may wonder why you’re having pain in hip or both hips, but the fact is with age and use, the hip joint can get damaged over time.
Anytime you use your hips, a cushion of cartilage helps prevent friction as the hipbone moves in its socket.
Despite its durability, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged as we age or perhaps from sports injuries and over use. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused and overtaxed. The hipbone itself can also be fractured during a fall or other injury. Any of these conditions can lead to bursitis in hip or any other type of pain in your hips.
Bursitis in Hip: Causes of Pain in Your Hips
Here are some of the common causes of pain in hips that we’ve seen and successful treated in our practice for many years:
- Arthritis – Arthritic conditions such as Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are among the most common causes of hip pain, especially in older adults. Arthritis leads to inflammation of the hip joint and the breakdown of the cartilage that normally cushions your hipbones. The pain gradually gets worse as the Arthritis progresses. People with Arthritis also feel stiffness and have reduced range of motion in the hip. So if you have sore hips, Arthritis may be the culprit.
- Hip Fractures – Fractures of the hip tend to occur in elderly people. With age, the bones can become weak and brittle. Weakened bones are more likely to fracture during a fall.
- Bursitis in Hip – Inflammation of the small, fluid-filled sacs (called bursae) that protect muscles and tendons is usually due to repetitive activities that overwork or irritate the hip joint.
- Tendonitis – Tendons are the thick bands of tissue that attach bones to muscles. Tendonitis is inflammation or irritation of the tendons. It’s usually caused by repetitive stress from overuse.
- Muscle or Tendon Strain – Repeated activities can put strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the hips. When these structures become inflamed from overuse, they can cause pain and prevent the hip from functioning normally.
- Cancers – Tumors that start in the bone (bone cancer) or that spread to the bone can cause pain in the hips, as well as in other bones of the body.
- 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. Although it can affect other bones, Avascular Necrosis most often occurs in the hip. It can be caused by a hip fracture or dislocation, or from the long-term use of high-dose steroids (such as prednisone), among other causes.
