Hip pain is generally caused due to aging effect or due to fracture of the hip. A hip fracture is nothing but a split caused in the upper quarter of the thigh bone, i.e., femur bone. Based on the severity of the pain, the extent of the break, hip fracture is treated with suitable medication and surgery.
The hip is a simple ball and socket joint which allows the mobility of the legs. An injury caused by this joint is termed as hip fracture. The symptoms of a hip fracture are similar to the symptoms of hip arthritis. Pain in the upper thigh or groin, discomfort, weakness, tendency in the limp are some common hip arthritis symptoms which are seen in the case of hip injury as well.
If the hip pain is caused early at a young age, the orthopaedist may suggest you supporting exercises to strengthen your hip. These suggested exercises will help you to maintain your common mobility by strengthening the muscles in the hip. Not only for strengthening the hip but these exercises will help you to relieve pain easily.
Even if the hip pain persists, the orthopaedist may suggest you for usage of suitable medications like corticosteroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesics, anti-rheumatic drugs, etc. Even after using these medications, if you face the issue, then the orthopaedist will suggest for surgery. One can get complete relief from the hip pain by hip replacement surgery where the complete hip joint is replaced with an artificial one.
