The hip is one of the most stable joints in the body because of how deep the femur sits within the acetabulum. The hip is already a very stable joint because of its bony anatomy, and is further stabilized by a strong ligamentous structure, the labrum, and a thick capsule. Despite how stable the hip joint is, it is a very fluid joint that goes in a wide array of directions. Smooth cartilage lines the entire joint to allow for frictionless movement. Over time, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged, muscles and tendons can get overused, and bones can break leading to significant pain and injury.
Common conditions we treat:
- Bony Impingement
- Hip Replacement
- IT Band Syndrome
- Labral Tear
- Muscle Strains
- Pinched Nerves
One may experience hip pain when they are sitting, standing, walking, jogging, performing activities, and while sleeping. Hip pain can present in the front of your hip, in the groin area, on the outside part of your hip, or behind in the buttock/gluteal area. Some hip pain can also be referred from the lower back, which is why it is important to get an accurate diagnosis.
