Conditions of the Hip

Burning Thigh Pain

This condition is also known as Meralgia Paresthetica and is a painful burning sensation on the outer side of the thigh that usually indicates the large sensory nerves in your legs are being compressed. The symptoms often extend to the outer side of the knee, sometimes reaching the groin area or across the buttocks, and sensitivity to light touch.

Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)

FAI is a condition where the bony structure of the hip joint contacts itself during specific motions of the hip and can lead to hip labral tears over time. It is caused by extra bone growing along one or both of the bones forming the hip joint, giving it an irregular shape.

Hamstring Injuries

Injury of the hamstring is the most common thigh muscle injury and is known as a “pulled” hamstring, which is a strain or tears in the muscles or tendons at the back of the thigh. This injury typically occurs during accelerating-deceleration and high-speed running activities, such as basketball, football, and track and field.

Hip Arthritis

Also known as osteoarthritis and “wear-and-tear arthritis” is a common condition that occurs during aging, causing pain and stiffness which becomes more severe as time goes on without treatment or surgical intervention.

Hip Bursitis

This condition is an inflammation of the bursa, which are small and jelly-like sacs throughout the body between bones and soft tissue that contain a small amount of fluid. The bursa is meant to act as a cushion, reducing friction and develops typically from repetitive stress, injury to the hip, rheumatoid arthritis, bone spurs, or spine disease.

Hip Fractures

This is a break in the upper parts of the thighbone, or femur, and typically occurs among seniors with osteoporosis or a younger person due to a high-energy impact, such as a high fall or car accident.

Hip Labral Tear

This type of injury usually occurs with athletes in high-impact sports and is a tear to the tissue that holds the ball and socket of the hip together. Some of the symptoms include a reduction in range of motion in the hip, a hip locking sensation, and pain. Other causes can be overuse or abnormalities in the shape or alignment of the hip bones.

Hip Osteonecrosis

This condition is also known as avascular necrosis (AVN) and occurs when the blood supply to the thighbone is disrupted, leading to the collapse of the hip joint and severe arthritis as well as severe pain.

Hip Strain

This occurs when one of the supporting muscles to the hip joint is torn or stretched beyond its limits, they can range from mild to severe causing a reduction in hip movement. Severe strains can require physical therapy or medical intervention.

Post-Traumatic Arthritis

This type of arthritis is an inflammation in your joints caused by trauma, usually a bone fracture or dislocation. It can occur quickly after an injury or over years from wear and tear like most forms of arthritis and can be temporary or chronic.

Snapping Hip

A condition where a snapping sensation is felt or popping is heard while walking or getting up from a chair. This occurs when a muscle or tendon moves over a bone protrusion in the hip and isn’t a threat to your health and is painless, though can be annoying.
