What caused the Pain in your Hip?

Hip pain is a common condition caused by problems in the hip’s cartilage, hip muscles, hip ligaments, and hip bursae (plural for bursa). Pain can also result from nearby structures such as the groin, buttocks, spine and even the knees. Spinal sources of painful hips include bone spurs, slipped discs (slip-disc) and scoliosis. The groin sources of pain are often the results of hernia that send pain into the hip joint. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac between ligaments, tendons, bones, and skin. Another common cause of painful hips is arthritis. Damage to joints, muscles, and ligaments can lead to bursitis. Trochanteric bursitis is the most common bursitis in the hip.

In the coming sections, we will provide the answers you seek in regards to your painful hips. However, let’s cover some facts regarding your hip joint. The largest and most active joint in your body is the hip. It is highly flexible, providing you with stability, weight-bearing and strength you need when walking, running or jumping. Also, the hips are the lower body’s most shock-absorbing joints when brisk walking. Stability and durability are through a series of encapsulating ligaments, muscles as well as the ball and socket joint of the hip. We start our discussions with the functional anatomical structures of the hip joint.

The Hip Joint

The best and most proper description for the hip joint is a “ball-and-socket” joint. The ball part of the joint is through the ball-shaped knob at the end of the femur (thigh bone): where the socket component of the hip joint is a “pocket-like-depression” in the pelvis (ilium). The hip joint forms when the thigh-bone connects to the pelvis through a crisscross series of encapsulating ligaments. Excessive stress on the hip joint can lead to degenerative changes and eventual pain. Yes, the pain can come directly from the bones and joints. The pelvis itself is made up of three bones:

  1. The Ilium
  2. The Ischium
  3. The Pubis

Also, the ligaments and muscles as well as the “Bursae” (little bag filled water) that often cause Hip Pain.

Ligaments of the hip joint

Ligaments and muscles (soft tissues) provide stability and mobility. In the hips, there are four primary ligaments; the ischiofemoral, iliofemoral, and pubofemoral ligaments along with the ligamentum teres are collectively your hip stabilizers. Ligamentum teres is the ligament located inside your hip joint, connecting your thighbone to the hip socket. Injury or weakened ligaments lead to hip pain due to instabilities in ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

Muscles of the Hip

Ligaments and muscles (soft tissues) provide stability and mobility. In the hips, there are four primary ligaments; the ischiofemoral, iliofemoral, and pubofemoral ligaments along with the ligamentum teres are collectively your hip stabilizers. Ligamentum teres is the ligament located inside your hip joint, connecting your thighbone to the hip socket. Injury or weakened ligaments lead to hip pain due to instabilities in ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

Hip pain can result from hip muscle. Below is a list of hip muscles and their function to help you identify the possible muscle source of your hip pain:

  • The Iliopsoas, Rectus Femoris, Sartorius, and Pectineus muscles provide flexion.
  • The Gluteus Maximus, Semimembranosus, Semitendinosus, and the hamstrings carry out a hip extension.
  • Adduction (bringing your thighs together) is the sole responsibility of the adductors Brevis, Longus, and Magnus as well as the Gracilis and Pectineus muscles.
  • Abduction (lifting your leg) is through the piriformis, TFL, Gluteus Medius, and Minimus muscles.
  • Medial rotation (rotating the hips inward) is by the TFL, Gluteus Medius, and Gluteus Minimus.
  • Lateral rotation (turning the thighbone outwards) is carried out by the Gluteal maximus, Piriformis, Biceps Femoris, and Quadratus Femoris.

Painful hips resulting from a bursitis

The health of your hip joint is dependent on the flexibility and length or the TFL or Tensor Fasciae Latae. Tensor Fasciae Latae or TFL connects to the pelvic rim. As it continues down, it merges with the iliotibial band. The iliotibial band or ITB connects your pelvis to the leg bone, hence the name. Tightening, spams, shortening or injury of the ITB leads to hip pain.

The bursae (plural for bursa) are the critical structures within your hip joint. A bursa is an enclosed sac filled with fluid. The primary function is to prevent or reduce friction between ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Bursitis occurs when your hip is predisposed to excessive stresses, leading to swelling or inflammatory changes within the bursae. The hipbone has multiple bursae, the trochanteric bursa, iliopsoas bursa, gluteus medius bursa, and the ischiogluteal bursa. The primary source of hip pain related to the bursae is irritation of either the trochanteric and the iliopsoas bursae.

A bursa is a fluid-filled sac or bag that protects soft tissues. They can be located beneath the skin or deeper, separating muscles and tendons. The plural term for a bursa is bursae. The human body has about 160 bursae. In the hip, there are two major bursae; the trochanteric bursa and the iliopsoas bursa.

These bags or bursae are insulators between the bone and the muscles that cover the bone. When the trochanteric bursa or the iliopsoas bursa is irritated, they can get inflamed. An inflamed bursa can quickly become a source of hip pain. There are many other reasons why we get hip pain.

Each hip joint has two of these bags (bursae). One covering the pointed bony part of the hip joint (trochanteric bursa), while the other, located on the inside part of the hip near the groin area (iliopsoas bursa). They are often a source of hip pain, especially when they are irritated. Once hurt or injured it inflames and as such the condition it is called a “Bursitis.” Our clinical collaborative team offers the best non-operative hip treatment in town.

What are the Actual Causes of Hip Problems?

Reasons for hip problems are many. There are internal problems that can send pain to the hip area. Internal problems such as Endometriosis, a condition where uterus lining tissue grows in parts of a woman’s body other than the uterus. Also, kidneys, gall bladders, pancreases, and other organs can cause hip pain and back pain. Their patterns are particular and differ from mechanical back pain, but it takes a professional to tell the difference.

Femoral and inguinal hernias can also transmit pain into the hip. Inguinal hernias are sometimes called sports hernias: where loops of intestine protrude out of the cavity that contains them and can cause anterior (frontal) hip discomfort. The protruding loops of intestines into the scrotal sac are dangerous as they can lead to strangulation of testicles in the male patient. Pregnant women can be susceptible to inguinal hernias because of the added pressure on the wall of their abdomen.

But relax, more often than not, hip pain is a mechanical fault, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bursae, those little bags of water that act as insulation between the bone and other structures. Our centers have the technology and non-operative clinical teams of Chiropractors and Physiotherapist to diagnose and treat even the most complicated hip disorder.
