icon-anatomy-doctorAbout your hips

Your hips are the largest ball-and-socket joint in your body. Your hip joints provide you with a full range of motion allowing for you to walk or run, among other physical activities.

Your hip joint is formed by the meeting of two major bones; your hip bone and your femur. The ends of each of the bones are covered in a protective cartilage that provides a smooth surface for the bones to glide on during movement.

This protective cartilage also acts as a shock absorber to prevent the bones from hitting one another. Your hip joints are covered by ligaments that provide support and prevent dislocation. Your hip joints also gain strength from a number of surrounding muscles.

The hip joint is designed to handle high levels of wear and tear, but is susceptible to sudden and chronic injuries.

icon-symptoms-doctorCommon causes of hip pain

There are three main causes of hip pain; a sudden injury, a medical condition or chronic overuse.

Hip pain is not always directly felt in the hip joint or caused by an issue with your hip. Pain in or injury to your upper leg, groin, buttocks and low back region can alter hip function.

The most common reasons for hip pain are due to a muscle or ligament strain. In cases where extreme trauma occurs, a hip fracture or hip dislocation is possible. Arthritis or osteoarthritis attributed to everyday wear on the joint are also causes of hip pain.

To be certain of the reason for your hip pain, contact the orthopedic surgeons at Westchester Sport and Spine for specific diagnosis of your hip pain.
