It’s All Connected
Your hip joint has two jobs: connect your pelvis to your thigh bones and bear an incredible amount of your weight. This is pretty impressive, considering that such a small portion of your body holds most of your weight. The hip’s constant hard work contributes to why so many men find themselves with hip joint pain. There are many other reasons, too, why you experience hip pain, including:
- Hip strain
- Osteoarthritis in the hip
- Hip flexor pain
- Joint pain
- Hip tendonitis
- Chronic hip pain
- Sciatic pain
- Pulled groin
Hip flexor pain, which feels like a dull ache, comes from straining your hip muscles. Hip flexor pain occurs most often from playing sports, from football to soccer or even tennis. Additionally, dancing places a lot of stress on your hips, which can lead to early stages of arthritis. Sometimes, pain from other parts of your body — such as your groin or sciatic nerve — radiate shooting pain to your hip.
Learning About Your Hips
Your hip joint can withstand continuous motion and a fair amount of wear and tear from everyday use. It’s a ball-and-socket joint that fits together in a way that encourages movement. Whenever you use your hips for climbing, walking, running or any number of other actions that require you to move your legs, your body produces a viscous liquid that lubricates the joint. A cushion of cartilage also protects your bones from rubbing against each other directly.
Despite their design and durability, your hips aren’t indestructible. With age and a lot of use, the cartilage protecting your bones can become worn down or damaged, causing a lot of unnecessary hip joint pain. You may overuse the muscles and tendons in your hip or the bones connected to your hip can develop tiny cracks — and either of these conditions can cause excruciating hip pain. You may even notice that your pain worsens with activity.
Get to the Bottom of Hip Tendonitis
If your hip is giving you pain, you can’t always afford to spend several days resting, hoping it will get better. If your pain is caused by hip tendonitis, a pulled groin or strained muscle, over-the-counter medicine that act as anti-inflammatories may offer some temporary relief from the hip pain. What you need, though, are better, more permanent options to free you of your much-too-frequent pain.
Our main goal at ReBalance is to get you up and moving again with the least possible downtime. It all begins with a diagnosis of what’s causing you pain. Once your doctor reaches the proper diagnosis, using all of the necessary diagnostic tools available, your treatment options are then tailored to address your individual condition.
