What Is Hip Pain?
Hip joint is a ball and socket synovial joint designed for multi-axial movement, hence our hips are mobile joints and stiffness in the hips may present as a source of pain and discomfort in the body.
The hip is also surrounded by articular cartilage that allows the hip joint to rotate and glide within its socket which allows for the large degree of range of motion in our hip joints.
Hip pain is a common complaint among individuals of all ages. This pain can be challenging to diagnose as there are many differential diagnoses that include intra articular and extra articular pathologies and these vary by age.
A thorough history and physical examination is crucial to accurately diagnose the cause of the hip pain and to be able to treat it accordingly. In some cases, your practitioner may want to refer you for further imaging that may include plain radiography (Xray), ultrasound or MRI if there is suspicion of labral tears causing pain in the hip.
