Hip pain involves any pain in or around the hip joint. Hip-related pain is not always felt directly over the hip. Instead, you may feel it in the middle of your thigh or in your groin. Similarly, pain you feel in the hip may actually reflect a problem in your back, rather than your hip itself.

Hip pain can be caused by:

  • Hip fracture - as people age because falls are more likely and bones become less dense. People with osteoporosis can get a fracture from simple, everyday activities.
  • Avascular necrosis - a disruption of the blood supply to the joint causing collapse of the bone/cartilage
  • Arthritis -- often felt in the front part of your thigh or in your groin
  • Trochanteric bursitis -- hurts when you get up from a chair, walk, climb stairs, and drive
  • Tendinitis from repetitive or strenuous activity
  • Strain or sprain
  • Low-back pain such as sciatica
  • Infection

At Colorado Joint Replacement, we specialize in treating the following conditions:

  • Post-traumatic arthritis - arthritis due to a previous fracture or trauma to the joint
  • Avascular necrosis - a disruption of the blood supply to the joint causing collapse of the bone/cartilage
  • Congenital anomalies such has hip dysplasia or some skeletal dysplasia
  • Previous infection - which can destroy the cartilage in a joint
  • Tumors - an abnormal growth of cells within the bone that may be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant).
  • Young adult hip pain/femoro-acetabular impingement and hip labral tears
  • Advanced arthritic change – seen in patients in their 40s and 50s, could be related to repetitive high impact activity, such as long distance running or obesity.
