For most people, hip pain either occurs as a result of sports-related injuries, or it is a sign of old age. Outside of these situations, there should be no reason to experience this affection. Most people are wrong. In reality, people may end up experiencing hip pain for many causes, some of which can be extremely difficult to treat. This is why we, at Calgary Core Physiotherapy stress the importance of becoming informed about the best treating methods available to you.
Calgary hip pain predominantly occurs in specific age groups (up to 15 and higher than 45; outside of these parameters, the cases are rarer but not unheard of), and it can prove to be challenging to deal with, mainly because it can become highly debilitating in time. The first thing to do is to identify the causes, and that is, in and of itself, a daunting task.
The hip consists of several sections and moving parts, mainly:
- The Ilium bone
- The Iliac fossa bone cavity
- The sacrum
- The sacroiliac joint
- The head and the neck of the femur, connecting to the pubic bone and the
All these sections work together to maintain the lower body’s functionality, and when one is affected, the entire system will feel the repercussions as well. For this reason, it is imperative to immediately approach hip pain the moment it occurs and stop the manifestation from progressing.
The most common causes of hip pain
Calgary hip pain affects millions worldwide, and part of its damages are linked to people not taking measures in time. For that to happen, patients need to undergo a screening procedure, so that the clinician can establish the underlying cause. Among the most common sources for the hip pain we include:
- Osteoarthritis – According to a 2010 study called Epidemiology of Osteoarthritis, this is the most prevalent joint disorder in the US, affecting one in 10 people 60-years of age or older. In their case, it is a pain in the joints and articulations that force them to take action and seek professional assistance.
- Bursitis – The name of the disease comes from the sac of liquids forming between bones, muscles and tendons, and which will cause significant levels of pain when inflammation occurs due to joint friction caused by movement.
- Tendinitis – Tendinitis usually occurs in athletes, due to the immense and repetitive physical stress they are obliged to face.
- The iliotibial band syndrome – It generally occurs in those who do excessive running and end up causing inflamed ligaments in the hip area, around the thighs.
Other conditions that may induce the Calgary hip pain include fractures or hip dysplasia. Whatever the underlying cause might be, it is imperative to go for a consultation as soon as possible. At Calgary Core Physiotherapy, we never take chronic pain lightly. It affects more than 1.5 billion people over the world, and it can make life a living hell if left untreated. Don’t ignore it; seek medical attention the moment you feel the symptoms won’t go away on their own.Calgary Hip Pain
