Should I See a Doctor About My Hip Pain?

Hip fractures commonly occur in the upper quarter of the thigh bone (femur) and are often caused by falls or direct impacts. Symptoms like pain in the upper thigh and groin are telltale signs. While surgery is a standard treatment, bed rest may be recommended for older adults who cannot undergo anesthesia. Our advanced surgical techniques include total hip replacement procedures for severe cases.

What is Causing My Hip Pain?

Your hip pain could be caused by daily activities such as strain, an injury, or arthritis. Common causes of hip pain that we treat include but aren’t limited to:

  • Hip Dislocation

Hip Strain

Hip strains occur when the large muscles that hold the hip joint together are stretched and torn. Injuries can be from a fall or blow to the muscle, overuse, or overstretching. Symptoms include pain in the muscle especially when being used, possible swelling, and possible loss of muscle strength.

While diagnosing, our doctors will typically use an x-ray to make sure there are no fractures to the hip. If there are no fractures, rest, ice, compression, and exercise will help heal a strain.

Dislocated Hip

A hip dislocates when the head of the hip bone slips out of its socket in the pelvis. Dislocated hips usually occur from a fall or auto accident. This injury causes severe joint pain and causes the leg to take on an unnatural twisted look. The bones can be manipulated back into place under anesthesia. However, if the bones are broken, it may require surgery.

Hip Injury

The pelvis is made up of bones, ligaments, forming a protective bowl around several organs and large blood vessels. Pelvis fractures can be a serious injury. Most fractures are caused by sports, osteoporosis, auto accidents, crush accidents or falls.

Symptoms include severe pain in the pelvis area. To diagnose a pelvis fracture, our team will use x-rays and CT scans. During diagnosis, the doctor will also examine blood vessels and nerves in the legs for additional damage.

Pelvis injuries from sports are typically less severe and can heal without surgery. Fractures from high-energy trauma are life-threatening due to blood loss and will require surgery.

Hip Diseases

Because there are so many nerves, blood vessels and organs located in the hip and pelvis area, many other problems can occur. Here is a list of other hip and pelvis diseases and syndromes Orthopedic Health of Kansas City can diagnose and treat:

Hip Dysplasia
Arthritis of the Hip
Bursitis of the Hip
