Dr. Martin Renew said that hip pain has many causes, including those related to the hip and bones, and others related to other diseases.
The German orthopedic doctor added that the causes of hip pain related to the hip and bones are the erosion of the hip joint, blockage of the hip joint, osteoporosis in the hip and atrophy of the hip bone, as well as accidents, injuries and fractures in the hip area.
As for the causes, which are related to other diseases, they are bacterial infections, pressure on the nerves, metabolic diseases (such as gout and diabetes) and peripheral arterial disease.
Renew stressed the need to consult a doctor to determine the true underlying cause of hip pain and undergo timely treatment, which includes drug therapy (such as painkillers), surgery (such as fixation with plates, screws, and artificial hip replacement) and physical therapy.
Hip joint pain can be prevented or troubled by doing strengthening and stretching exercises, such as the following two:
Bicycle on the floor: The person lies on his back on the floor and simulates the movement of cycling with his legs. This exercise works to warm up the thigh muscles. It is taken into account while performing this exercise that the spine is in good contact with the ground.
Floor sweep stretch: Stand with feet hip-width apart with a small towel bounding one foot, then move that foot outward, while the other foot remains slightly bent. After that, the foot is returned to the inside and the movement is repeated 15 times with each foot. This exercise helps to lengthen the hip muscles.
To achieve good results, you should do muscle strengthening and stretching exercises two to three times a week.
