Counting The Warning Signs

In most of the cases of hip arthritis, pain is the most common symptom. However people mistake the pain in buttock region to be hip pain. The true hip pain occurs in the groin and may sometimes travel down to the thigh region also. Some people may also complain of pain in the knee which is a referred hip pain. A discrepancy in length of the leg may be felt by few patients with advanced hip degeneration. One leg shorter than the other may cause the person to limp.

As a result of the degeneration of the cartilage, both the bone surfaces come in contact making the person aware of a creak while moving. Progressively there is restricted movements and limitation of daily activities. a asimple activity like walking becomes a tedious painful task. A difficult-to-diagnose hip problem causes pain and limits the activities of many people who go from doctor to doctor seeking relief.

The problem, called a labral tear, can be compared to a torn cartilage in the knee. Left untreated, a labral tear can cause the hip joint to deteriorate and can eventually lead to arthritis. Arthritis, bursitis, or a pinched nerve in the lower back are the three most common causes of pain around the hip.
