Our Hip Specialists at Orthopaedic Center of South Florida are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of hip injuries and conditions.
Hip pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as bursitis and arthritis, or of a recent hip injury, such as a hip fracture or hip dislocation.
In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions such as hip bursitis and hip arthritis may create extreme bone and joint discomfort, making surgery a credible option for relieving your hip pain. The most frequent causes for pain in the hip can be related to an orthopaedic condition that has emerged over time.
Signs and symptoms of hip pain include:
Joint pain felt in the front of the hip, along the outside of the hip, in the groin, or over the buttock area
Discomfort and swelling in the thigh and knee
Joint inflammation or hip muscle spasms, which may cause fluid accumulation in the hip joint
Limping or the inability to walk comfortably on the affected side
Inability to bend or rotate the hip
Soreness and the feeling of the hip throbbing while sleeping or resting
Fever, redness, and warmth—which are signs of infection
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, you may have a hip condition, such as hip osteoarthritis, hip bursitis, hip arthritis, or an injury like a fractured hip, dislocated hip, hip flexor injury, or labral tear.
At Orthopaedic Center of South Florida, we understand that pain in the hip can make everyday tasks difficult.
