Hip pain can come about due to a number of variables, including too much exercise, sitting in an improper position for long periods of time, even an automobile accident.
Arthritis and Hip Pain
Arthritis is probably the most common cause of chronic, long-term hip pain, an age-related condition that wears down the cartilage that surrounds the hip joint. Osteoarthritis is a common condition where this situation occurs.
Traumatic arthritis can occur when there is trauma to the joint, like a fracture, for instance. Infectious arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can also cause hip pain due to attacking associated cartilage and even bone.
If you experience very sudden, severe hip pain, this could be the result of a hip fracture, in which case you would want to consult with a physician immediately.
Snapping hip syndrome, avascular necrosis, and osteonecrosis can also be the source of hip pain.
Chiropractic for Hip Pain
