ORTHOPEDIC FOR HIP CONDITIONS
Hip Conditions can cause severe pain and immobility in those who are suffering from various hip and thigh related problems. Thankfully, at the Sea Spine Orthopedic Institute, we have several doctors who are highly trained in this area and can offer treatments to improve your health.
The vast majority of hip and thigh related problems we encounter with our patients deal with the ball and socket joint. This joint is what allows the wide range of motion for the leg and body. Many of the movement we take for granted such as walking, running, and overall stability are directly influenced by this socket.
Over time, wear and tear will gradually break down the cartilage that is in the joint. This reduction in “cushion” will lead to friction, which in turn produces the pain experienced by many of our patients.
Over time, overuse, injury, and disease are common problems that will lead to pain in the hip joint. Fractures can even occur when left untreated!
Common Hip Conditions Are:
Arthritis: painful inflammation and stiffness of the hip joint
Fractures: a broken bone
Bursitis: painful inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that reduce the amount of friction between the hips bones, muscles, and tendons.
Acetabular Fractures: this is the specific break of the bone in the hip socket
Hip Dislocation: this occurs when the bones is forced out of place.
Avascular Necrosis: also called osteonecrosis, this condition occurs when the blood supply to the bone is not as it should be and the bone tissue dies.
Hip replacement: when the replacement of a damaged hip is needed via surgery. The hip is replaced with a prosthetic implant.
Hip Labral Tears: this is damage to the fibrous cartilage that lines the inner rim of the hip socket.
