Hip pain is a common complaint among seniors, although not as common as other joint conditions.

There are many reasons you might have hip pain. Sometimes the cause is in the joint itself. Other times, it’s because of soft-tissue damage around the joint or diseases in other parts of your body that include:
Any of the most common forms of arthritis — osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis — can cause joint pain.
Bursitis happens when the small, fluid-filled sacs that help your joints move smoothly become inflamed.
Most hip fractures happen in the femoral neck or the intertrochanteric region — the part of the upper thigh bone that juts outward.
Aseptic necrosis happens when part or all of the bone dies because not enough blood flows to the hip.
Other conditions include muscle strain in the hip joint, lower back pain, and infection. The team at PrimeCare Chiropractic & Physical Therapy must first identify the cause of your pain before they can create a treatment program to address your specific needs.
