Hip Care

Hip pain can be incredibly debilitating, IBJI’s experienced hip doctors understand the different types of injuries that athletes and non-athletes can suffer. IBJI hip specialists work to ensure our patients receive specific treatment so they can achieve acceptable physical strength, mobility and confidence.

IBJI’s fellowship-trained hip specialists offer a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments to manage joint pain and restore mobility including:

Don’t live with the pain. From inpatient and outpatient hip replacement surgery, arthroscopy, to non-surgical options such as pain management, physical therapy, and medical weight management, the hip specialists at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute will help you move better, so you can live better.

Symptoms of Hip Pain

Symptoms can range depending on the condition that’s causing your hip pain. You might feel the discomfort in one or multiple areas:

  • Groin
  • Thigh
  • Inside of your hip joint
  • Outside of your hip joint
  • Lower Back
  • Buttocks

Sometimes pain from areas of the body, such as the groin or lower back, can radiate from the hip joint. You might notice that your pain gets worse with activity, especially if it’s caused by arthritis. Along with the pain, you might have a reduced flexibility of your hip. Some patients develop a limp from persistent hip pain.

When to Address Your Hip Pain

If you are experiencing popping, pain, irritation, weakness, swelling or instability in your hip, you should consult an IBJI orthopedist. There are many great options for hip pain treatment and further stabilizing your pelvis. The experts at IBJI can help, our orthopedic hip doctors will find the best method that fits your hip condition. Please contact us at any of our locations.

Causes of Hip Pain

Hip pain may be caused by arthritis, injuries, strains, pinched nerves, or other problems. Here are some of the most common causes of hip pain:

  • Arthritis of the Hip
  • Trochanteric Bursitis (Hip Bursitis)
  • Tendonitis of the Hip
  • Osteonecrosis of the Hip
  • Snapping Hip Syndrome
  • Hip Impingement
  • Hip Labral Tear
  • Stress Fractures of the Hip
  • Hip Muscle Strains
  • Hip Fracture
  • Hip Dislocation
  • Carrying Extra Weight

Being overweight can burden your hip joints, causing you to experience pain or inflammation. IBJI’s OrthoHealth program, led by certified weight management doctors, is specially designed to help you manage all of the different factors impacting your weight and put you on track to optimize your health even when your ability to exercise is limited by joint pain.

Orthopedic Hip Conditions

Osteoarthritis of the Hip

This type of arthritis, also called “degenerative joint disease,” is a breakdown of the cartilage in your hip joint. As this protective cartilage wears away, bone rubs against bone. Bony growths called “bone spurs” may form in the joint. Pain from osteoarthritis can keep you from being as active as you like.

Hip Bursitis

This is an irritation or swelling of the trochanteric bursa. This small, fluid-filled sac is found on the outer side of the femur. It acts as a cushion for the iliotibial band, a thick tendon in your leg.

Hip Fracture

This is a break of the upper part of your femur. The femur is the long bone in your upper leg. At the top of the femur is the “head.” This is the ball that fits into your hip socket. A hip fracture may happen at the “neck” of the femur (the thin portion of bone under the head). Fractures may also happen below the neck.

Hip Dislocation

With this injury, the head of your femur (which is shaped like a ball) slips out of your hip socket. It may slip forward or backward out of position. This can damage structures around the joint.

Hip Labral Tear

If your hip joint hurts, or if it catches or clicks when you move your leg, you may have a torn labrum. That’s a rim of tissue that surrounds the hip’s socket. It helps to deepen the socket and cushion the joint. A torn labrum can keep the hip joint from working smoothly.

Hip Instability

Hip stability is crucial in supporting the upper body weight while standing, walking and running. Injury or damage to the hip joint, labrum, or ligaments can lead to hip instability. Instability occurs when the hip joint becomes unstable causing various symptoms.
