Where is The Pain Coming From?
The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. This is the body’s largest ball and socket joint. It all fits together in order to create fluid movement.
However, when you use the hip excessively, such as taking a long run, the cushion of cartilage helps prevent friction to the bones of the hip. It is very durable, however, nothing is permanent. Imagine this kind of force and friction during the duration of your life. It adds up. The hip can only take so much.
With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Bones in the hip can break during a fall or other injury. Any of these conditions can lead to pain of the hip that can be treated with a stem cell therapy procedure.
Common Causes of Hip Pain
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are among the most common causes of pain, especially in older adults. Arthritis leads to inflammation of the hip joint and the breakdown of the cartilage that cushions your hip bones. The pain gradually gets worse. People with arthritis also feel stiffness and have reduced range of motion in the hip.
- Hip fractures.
- With age, the bones can become weak and brittle. Weakened bones are more likely to break during a fall.
- Bursae are sacs of liquid found between tissues such as bone, muscles, and tendons. They ease the friction from these tissues rubbing together. When bursae get inflamed, they can cause pain. Inflammation of bursae is usually due to repetitive activities that overwork or irritate the hip joint.
- Tendons are the thick bands of tissue that attach bones to muscles. Tendinitis 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 they become inflamed due to overuse, they can cause pain and prevent the hip from working normally.
- Hip labral tear.
- This is a rip in the ring of cartilage that follows the outside rim of the socket of your hip joint. Along with cushioning your hip joint, your labrum acts like a rubber seal or gasket to help hold the ball at the top of your thigh bone securely within your hip socket. Athletes and people who perform repetitive twisting movements are at higher risk of developing this problem.
