The hip joint is one of the body’s largest and most important joints. As
each hip joint has to bear half of its body weight, this load increases even
more during movements such as walking, running, climbing stairs, squatting, and
can reach several times the body weight. For this reason, some congenital
or acquired disorders in the hip joints cause serious problems later, even if
they are not noticed in the early period.
It is possible to summarize the main causes of hip pain as follows:
The most important discomfort in the hip joint in early childhood is
congenital hip dislocation. If this condition is not treated in time, it
causes a significant limp along with pain and difficulty in movement in the hip
in advanced ages.
Inflammatory or degenerative rheumatic diseases cause
structural deformities in the hip joint. The most common cause of pain in
adulthood is arthritis in the hip joint.
Germs that spread or come directly from another part of the body can cause
inflammation in the hip joint.
Breast-lung and prostate cancers can spread to the hip joint and cause
severe hip pain.
Hip pain may occur as a result of the occlusion of the vessels feeding the
hip bones or the impairment of the blood flow. For this purpose, various
imaging methods are used after a detailed clinical examination. The most
used imaging methods are classical x-ray, ultrasound, computer tomography and
After determining the cause of hip pain, treatment for this is
started. Some patients require medication. Physical therapy and
rehabilitation should be started after the acute phase of the disease or
following hip surgery. The recovery period is accelerated by having
in-pool walking training along with exercise treatments in eligible patients.
