Hip fractures can happen to anyone and are very serious because of their location.  Symptoms may consist of swelling, pain, and discoloration. Other more serious symptoms include the inability to move the leg or the affected leg seeming shorter.  If you believe you have fractured your hip, seek immediate attention and be still until help comes.

Arthritis is the most common cause of chronic hip pain.  Thousands of Americans suffer from an arthritic hip.  This disease can keep one from performing their routine daily activities.

There are four types of arthritis that generally affect the hip:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Osteoarthritis

This is the most common form of arthritis in which the cartilage that protect the hip joint wears out. Cartilage cannot be repaired or replaced, but physical therapy can improve the range of motion and reduce pain.

Common symptoms of osteoarthritis of the hip:

  • Groin pain
  • Severe hip pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness, especially in the morning
  • Limited movement
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

When osteoarthritis is present, the cartilage is not being provided with enough lubrication and nourishment. This leads to loss of motion, stiffness, and pain.

Osteonecrosis is a disease that causes severe aches and pains and results from lack of blood supply to the bone. Most commonly affecting the femoral head, the bone receives inadequate blood supply and eventually dies. This disease is most commonly caused by a dislocation or fracture but has also been associated with traumatic injury, excessive consumption of alcohol, and steroid use.

Common types of hip injuries, which can cause swelling, stiffness, and pain:

  • Tendinitis (tendonitis) – inflammation of tendon or surrounding area
  • Bursitis – painful inflammation in the hip that causes tenderness and pain when touched or moved
  • Contusions – bruises that appear after trauma to the hip area
  • Sprains – the stretching of hip ligaments

A hip labral tear is an tear in the cartilage that surrounds the hip socket. This can be caused by sports injury or structural abnormalities of the hip. Symptoms include pain, locking of the hip joint, or limited range of motion.

Greater trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled sac) beside the hip joint. Common causes of greater trochanteric bursitis include overuse, tendon tears, and other injuries. Pain on the outside of the hip that spreads down the leg and stiffness in the hip joint are frequent symptoms of this type of bursitis.

Femoroacetabular Impingement is a condition where there is excess bone growth along one or both of the bones that make up the hip joint. This growth causes the hip to become an irregular shape, causing damage, pain, and limited range of motion. There are three types of Femoroacetabular Impingement:

  • Pincer
  • Cam
  • Combined

Wonderful Client Feedback

Great staff!  Love this place, would highly recommend. Had no issues after knee surgery!!

-Rod

Dr. Maurer’s honest approach to discussing options and talking TO me, not AT me, is a great comfort when making these big decisions.

-Lyle

Dr. Diehl was very kind and caring. I don’t think there is a person in this office who is not professional and personable. They go above and beyond for their patients.

-Patricia

Very impressed with Dr. Lessner. Very thorough and listened to me. He gave me multiple treatment options and involved me in the decision making. Highly recommend!

-Todd

I’ve recuperated very well with physical therapy after having both knees replaced here. I’m on my way to walking normally again and without pain. They take time to listen and explain everything completely.

-April

This has been one of the best medical care experiences I’ve had, from our initial consultation to post-op visits to physical therapy. Dr. Diehl and his team are a very caring, friendly, and professional group. I had a left knee injury (meniscus and ACL tears). Thank you!!
