Hip Disorder

Hip pain can come in many forms, from a dull ache to a sharp, tingling sensation. It’s very common among all ages and can cause mild to severe discomfort when performing daily activities such as standing, walking, squatting, bending, and climbing stairs. At our clinic, our physical therapists not only treat conditions such as strains, tendinitis, bursitis, and osteoarthritis, but also assess each patient’s biomechanics to treat underlying impairments that can cause hip pain. That way, we can get to the root of the problem and provide long-lasting relief.





  • Pain in the hip
  • Limping
  • Reduced movement in the hip joint
  • Referred pain (may be felt in the leg)
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Pain in the leg when you apply weight on that leg
  • If you have arthritis, you may experience chronic pain or pain when walking. If you have an accident that results in swelling or pain in your hip, it’s important to seek medical attention right away. These symptoms could mean that you have a fracture.

Muscle Strains and tendinitis: Strains and tendinitis are common injuries that can occur when the muscles and tendons around the hip are overused. These injuries can cause pain, tenderness, and tightness around the hip.

Strains usually occur when the muscle is in its most lengthened position. Overuse of the muscles in these areas can also lead to tendinitis and tendinopathy.

Bursitis: Bursitis is a condition that results when the bursa, a small, fluid-filled sac located where muscles and tendons move over bones, becomes inflamed or swollen. This can lead to pain and reduced range of motion.

Greater trochanter bursitis is the most common type of bursitis, and it causes pain on the outermost aspect of the hip. In most cases, bursitis is a secondary condition that results from tendinopathy, or the inflammation of a tendon, of a muscle.

Snapping hip syndrome (often referred to as dancer’s hip): Snapping hip syndrome is a condition that can cause a snapping or popping noise when you move your leg in certain ways. It can occur on the front of the hip (snapping of the iliopsoas), or along the outside of the hip (snapping of the IT Band/glute complex). If you think you might have snapping hip syndrome, it’s important to see a doctor or other medical professional to get a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Femoral Acetabular Impingement (FAI): Impingement of the hip is not unusual. It’s caused by the femur and acetabulum not moving correctly, which then leads to friction and pain. If it’s not treated, impingement can cause tears and progressive loss of motion. When people with impingement try to move their hip, they might hear popping or clicking noises. Acetabular labral tears:

Acetabular labral tears can be caused by degeneration due to FAI or by a trauma to the hip. They are often characterised by clicking and popping sounds in the groin area. With labral tears, you may experience pain when lying on your back and raising a straight leg.

Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis, especially in the hip, is a common pain source for older individuals. The pain is often worse when they first wake up in the morning, but it gets better as they move around throughout the day.

There are abnormal changes that can happen in the joints, like cartilage degradation and bone spurs. This can cause pain, limited range of motion, and other problems.

Pinched nerves: If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, or radiating pain into your leg, it could be pinched nerves. This can often happen when a nerve is impinged in the hip area, but it’s not always stemming from the back. If you’re not sure what’s causing your pain, it’s always best to consult with a medical expert to get a professional opinion.

Sciatica is a common issue that many people experience. It can be very painful, shooting down the back of your leg. Other nerves can also be impinged, causing pain to radiate down the front, middle, and outer aspect of the leg.

There are two main types of hip disorder; hip bursitis and hip dysplasia. Hip bursitis is caused by inflammation of the bursa, which is found between the bone and the soft tissue around the hip. It mostly occurs in the hips of young adults and develops because of a traumatic injury, such as falling or twisting. The other type of hip disorder is hip dysplasia, which is the dislocation of the ball and socket joint, leading to degenerative arthritis. Both types of hip disorder can be prevented by making sure to exercise the hip and strengthening the muscles around it.

I have been visiting the clinic for the past two years and my experience has been great. Dr. Kant is very knowledgeable and he treats his patients with full dedication and patience. I underwent treatment for my neck and back pain and I got relief after just a few sessions of dry needling. So, I would recommend everyone to visit KALP HEALTH CARE for any kind of physiotherapy treatment.

Nithya Santhakumar

At the age of 53, a back problem is scary when a doctor tells you that you need 10 days of bed rest or surgery! I went to Kalp expecting the usual steps of physiotherapy, but I couldn't even stand up straight or get out of bed without shooting pain. This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. Dr. Kant is a simple man but a magician when it comes to his treatment. He is passionate and positive about his treatment and knows the human body like the back of his hand. A dedicated team with Dr. Monika and Dr. Rakesh got me on my feet in just 3 days. This is the best treatment I could have asked for!

When you’re under any kind of mental or emotional stress, your psoas muscle responds by tightening. Eddy notes that even after the stress is gone, the tension may still linger in the body and hip area, contributing to things like headaches and lower back pain.

Assessing Hip Abnormalities

Medical imaging, including X-rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), is crucial in diagnosing hip pain. An X-ray can reveal an excess of bone on the femoral head or neck and the acetabular rim. An MRI can reveal fraying or tears of the cartilage and labrum.
