However, injuries, aging, and overuse can take a toll on the hip joint, leading to pain and decreased mobility.

Common Problems with the Hips

Hip injuries from sports can range from muscle strains to cases that require surgery. Balance among the hip muscles and the other muscles of the body can help prevent hip injuries, along with strength, flexibility, stability, and endurance training. Hip pain and lack of mobility can be caused by various injuries and conditions.

Osteoarthritis

Weight-bearing hip joints are at risk for osteoarthritis, commonly known as “wear and tear” arthritis. This condition involves wearing away of the cartilage that cushions the bones, allowing them to rub together and causing stiffness and pain.

Risk factors for osteoarthritis of the hips include:

  • Advanced age
  • Obesity
  • Repetitive high-impact activities
  • Fractures and sports injuries

Fractures

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, with the “ball” or head of the femur (thigh bone) fitting into the cup-shaped socket. A hip fracture is a break occurring in the upper femur near the hip.

This type of injury is frequently caused by minor trauma in older people with weakened bones, or by serious injuries and high-energy trauma in younger people.

Bursitis

Hip dislocation can be caused by automobile accidents and by collisions in sports such as skiing, snowboarding, or contact sports such as football. The sciatic nerve is often injured when hip dislocation occurs. This injury can be extremely painful and debilitating.

Hip Dislocation

Hip dislocation can be caused by automobile accidents and by collisions in sports such as skiing, snowboarding, or contact sports such as football. The sciatic nerve is often injured when hip dislocation occurs. This injury can be extremely painful and debilitating.

Strains and Sprains

Hip sprains and strains involve injury to the soft tissue in the hip area. Sprains are injury to the ligaments within the joint and strains are injury to the muscles and tendons.

Most strains and sprains of the hips are caused by:

Trauma from a fall or direct forceful impact; or

Overuse or overstretching of the muscles and ligaments.

Labral Tears

The ring of cartilage around the outside rim of the hip socket is called the labrum. It cushions the hip joint and acts as a gasket or seal to hold the thigh bone ball securely in the socket.

Labral tears are common among athletes in sports such as soccer, football, ice hockey, golf, and ballet.

Common causes of labral tears are:

Trauma: Injuries sustained in a car accident or contact sports can cause a tear in the labrum.

Repetitive motion: Sudden twisting or pivoting motions in sports such as golf or softball can cause wear and tear on the joint and lead to a labral tear.

Structural abnormalities: Congenital abnormalities can accelerate wear and tear on the joint and lead to a labral tear over time.
