What Disorders Cause Hip Pain?

Walking, running, sitting, even driving a car, are all activities that involve your hip—one of the most hardworking joints in the human body. A healthy hip joint is easy to take for granted, yet, as soon as hip pain or stiffness begin affecting the joint, its role in the majority of your daily tasks is suddenly brought to the forefront.

Some of the most common hip disorders include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Avascular Necrosis

In all of these conditions, the hip joint is somehow damaged or dysfunctional, causing increased hip pain and decreased mobility. Fortunately, there are treatment options available to help alleviate hip pain symptoms, lessen stiffness and restore hip joints back to normal function.
