Hip problems are very common and occur at any age. The hip is a ball and socket joint that attaches the leg to the torso of the body. While most causes of hip pain arise from the joint itself, there are many structures surrounding the hip joint that may be the source of severe pain.
What are the Causes of Hip Pain?
Trauma is often the cause of hip pain. However, any source of inflammation may be the source of pain around the hip area. Symptoms such as pain, swelling, warmth, and redness are signals that a problem may exist.
What Are Common Diseases That Affect the Hips?
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Psoriatic Arthritis
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
What Are Possible Complications From Untreated Hip Pain?
Failure to seek medical care may make complications worse. The complications of hip pain are often progressive, varying depending on the underlying cause of the pain. Possible complications include:
• Physical Disability
• Permanent Immobility
• Loss of Sensation
