Common Diagnoses for Hip Pain

Labral Tear:

  • A common cause of hip pain, often leading to groin pain. Symptoms typically worsen with hip flexion, rotation during sports activities, or prolonged sitting.
  • Unless you're a high-level athlete, conservative treatment with Physical Therapy has a high success rate.
  • Labral tears are often associated with instability in the hip joint and inadequate joint space for proper movement.

Impingement:

  • A broad term encompassing different types of hip pain resulting from limited joint space.
  • Impingement can occur at the front, back, or side of the hip joint.
  • Poor joint mechanics, restricted movement, and muscular tightness due to weakness often contribute to impingement.
  • Accurate diagnosis of the impingement direction is crucial for creating more space and enabling proper movement.

Lateral Hip Pain/Trochanteric Bursitis/Greater Trochanter Pain:

  • This term encompasses pain on the lateral aspect of the hip.
  • It is typically caused by overuse injuries, irritation of the bursa sac, or tendon-related pain.
  • Lack of control in the hip joint leads to excessive shearing forces, resulting in degeneration and pain.
  • Insufficient or excessive movement in the hip joint can contribute to this condition.

Tendonitis/Tendonosis:

  • Tendon pain localized around the hip, either at the front, side, or back.
  • Tendonosis pain arises from weakened tendons unable to withstand the stress placed upon them.
  • The most effective long-term treatment involves adding resistance and load to the tendon to promote tendon growth.
  • While manual techniques provide short-term pain relief, active rehabilitation offers the best treatment approach.

These are the most commonly observed sources of hip pain, although this list is not exhaustive. Numerous structures and tissues can be affected by breakdown, trauma, and shearing.
