Hip Pain

Home > Know your Pain > Hip Pain

Walking, sitting, running, our hips are in constant motion, hence the wear and tear of the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint is bound to happen anytime.

Composition of the Hip Joint?

When the thigh bone (femur) which has a ball-shaped head on its end meets the socket formed in the pelvis, called the acetabulum, the hip joint is formed. The ball and the socket are surrounded by a number of tendons, ligaments and muscles and are lined with a thin membrane called synovium, which produces a viscous fluid that keeps the joint lubricated. The cushion of cartilage in it that helps prevent friction can get damaged and the bones can break during a fall or other injury with time. Yet, the hip joint is also one of our most flexible joints that allows a greater range of motion than all other joints in the body except for the shoulder.

Did you know?

There is a giant space between the hip bones.’

Each hip bone is actually made up of three bones fuse together – ilium, pubis, and ischium. Also, there are noticeable differences between male and female hip bones. The female hip bones are more delicate and shallow than the males and the superior aperture of the female pelvis is larger and more circular than the males.

Sources of Hip Pain

Although there are many tough ligaments surrounding the hip joint that prevent the dislocation of the joint, some of the conditions that can commonly cause hip pain are; osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, piriformis syndrome, sprains, strains, fractures, sciatica, bursitis, tendinitis, lupus, etc.

What to do when pain encounters?

When pain or discomfort arises in the buttocks, it becomes impossible to do anything. But, the good news is that there are certain homecare treatments that are known to eliminate the pain in the hip joint considerably well like:

RICE
Rest, ice, compression and elevation. Treating your hips the traditional way works way better than any medications.

SHED KILOS
It’s our hip joint that bears half of the weight of our body, so losing some pounds will lessen the pressure on it.
