Common Causes and Symptoms of Hip Pain

You can try every home remedy imaginable just to realize that the pain keeps increasing. At Advanced Joint Pain Relief and Pain Management Center of Irvine, we can help determine the underlying cause and recommend the appropriate treatment.
Common Causes of Hip Pain in Adults
In most cases, there’s an underlying condition causing your hip pain. Your hip may be overworked, or you may have exercised too much; inflamed soft tissue and strained bones are likely the roots of your pain.
- Arthritis: If you have had hip pain that doesn’t go away with any home remedy, arthritis could be the leading cause. Arthritis causes pain, tender joints, and stiffness, making it difficult to walk. Some arthritis-related problems include osteoarthritis (especially in seniors), trauma such as fractures, and infectious arthritis, which is caused by an infection:
- Trochanteric Bursitis: Another prevalent cause of hip pain; it will only come when the liquid-filled sac near the hip joint is infected and inflamed.
- Hip Fractures: Can cause significant hip pain, especially in older adults and those with osteoporosis. If it’s a fracture, your pain is sudden and severe. You should seek immediate medical attention.
- Other causes: Numerous other, less common possibilities include snapping hip syndrome, osteonecrosis, and others.
