What Is Hip Pain?

Hip pain can be bothersome and have a big impact on a person’s lifestyle. It can interfere with sleep, prevent people from enjoying exercise and make normal day-to-day activities challenging.

Our team of highly trained chiropractors and therapists at Reco Spinal Centre in Bristol helps people suffering from hip pain every day.

The hip is a ball and socket joint supported by muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues. Problems can arise and cause pain in the hip and surrounding areas when any of these are impacted by an injury, wear and tear, disease or other medical issue.

Symptoms can include: not being able to put weight on the hip; swelling around the hip area; soreness or tenderness; pain whilst still or moving; feeling heat in the general area; and strange clicking or snapping sounds. Sometimes the pain and discomfort can also be felt in the groin, buttocks or thigh areas.

What Are the Causes of Hip Pain?

Hip pain is commonly experienced as people age. It is also common in athletes from over training and not recuperating sufficiently. For the dancers of Bristol, there is also a condition called ‘dancer’s hip’ which is also caused by over exertion.

Whatever the underlying cause of the hip pain, our team will make a diagnosis and come up with the best course of treatment.

Common causes of hip pain include:

  • Tendonitis – inflamed tendons
  • Arthritis – there are three types that can cause hip pain: osteoarthritis, infectious arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Trochanteric bursitis – when the liquid-filled sac near the hip joint becomes inflamed
  • Snapping hip syndrome – also known as dancer’s hip, usually caused by a cartilage tear or fragments of material in the hip
  • Osteonecrosis – when there is a lack of blood supplied to the bone tissue

Treatment for Hip Pain

How hip pain is treated depends on the diagnosis made by our team of Bristol based chiropractors and therapists. Often minor injuries or exercise-related hip pain can be resolved by a period of rest to allow the area of the hip to heal. However, in more serious or persistent cases, the condition of a hip can deteriorate without specialist treatment.

Treatments for hip pain can include:

  • Joint mobilisations and adjustments
  • Massage and stretching techniques
  • Nutritional and dietary advice
  • Relaxation techniques
  • An ongoing programme of physiotherapy
  • Regular stretches and exercises to do at home

Prevention of Hip Pain

There are many things that patients can do at home to improve their recovery. Our specialists at Reco Spinal Centre work with a patient to find the best ongoing treatment and prevention plan.

Recommendations may include a change in diet with nutritional advice, especially for those who are overweight, changing footwear and the use of hot and cold compresses. For those getting hip pain whilst running, prevention of hip pain could be as simple as getting more suitable running trainers.

It’s important not to stop movement altogether as this can cause stiffness and worsen the issue. It would also be damaging to over exercise.
