Medical Conditions That Cause Hip Pain?
Rheumatoid Arthritis – is a long-term autoimmune disorder that primarily affects joints. It typically results in warm, swollen, and painful joints.
Polymyalgia Rheumatica – is a syndrome with pain or stiffness, usually in the neck, shoulders, upper arms, and hips, but which may occur all over the body.
Hip avascular necrosis – Cell death of bone tissue in the hip joint brought on by vascular occlusion or coagulation which is the result of old age, alcoholism, trauma, decompression sickness, or several other possible causes; the treatment is often total hip replacement
Hip Fracture – a fine crack somewhere in the hip socket as a result of trauma or common in elderly women and those with osteoporosis, usually only in one hip
These conditions you are more likely to need a consultation with your GP or a specialist medical professional. However our osteopath will screen for these conditions and may refer you to doctor for further investigation, if necessary.
