At Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation, we work with our Lacey NJ hip pain patients and provide diagnosis, rehabilitation, and pain relief for patients suffering from hip pain in Ocean County.
Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain may be caused by a direct trauma to the hip itself, such as during sports injuries, auto accidents, or slips and falls. In cases like these, the hip may experience sprains, fractures, dislocations, or bursitis. Age-related degeneration plays a large role in how well the hip can withstand trauma. Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, is also the most common cause of hip pain in older patients.
Osteoarthritis is caused by the breakdown and wearing away of the cartilage of the joints. The hip joint’s femoral head and the acetabulum are lined with cartilage that, when in perfect health, allows the bones to move with less friction. Cartilage serves as a cushion between the bones. When degeneration of the cartilage occurs, friction and inflammation can cause hip pain.
Hip pain may also be caused by sciatica. Sciatica is a condition in which the sciatic nerve becomes pinched or withstands pressure, causing pain, numbness, or weakness in the lower extremities, from the low back through the hip, down the legs, and to the feet. When a disc injury causes compression of the nerves, or when any other condition irritates or inflames the sciatic nerve, the symptoms of sciatica may occur. Some sciatica patients suffer from hip pain.
