Treatment Hip pain
Pain hip - a feeling of discomfort of varying intensity, a symptom of developing pathology. It is a preventive and protective reaction of the body to the impact of external or internal negative factors. When it occurs, the functional system of the body is connected to eliminate the cause of the disease. Often, pain occurs after serious physical exertion and active training. Intense muscle contraction requires a lot of energy from the breakdown of glucose. As a result of biochemical reactions, lactic acid accumulates in fairly large volumes in muscle tissues. It provokes the appearance of burning and pain. In many cases, the body is not able to cope with the disease on its own and the person seeks medical help.
Causes of hip pain
Sharp pain in the hip occurs at the time of injury to the muscles, bones, joints, ligamentous-tendon apparatus. The most dangerous fracture of the femoral neck. The pain hip in this case is so acute that the person may well lose consciousness.
● Fracture of the pubic bone;
● Fracture of the pelvic bone in its sacral part;
● Compression injuries in the lumbar spine;
● Damage to the hip joint, hip bones due to mechanical damage
Other types of hip injuries include:
- Muscle and tendon ruptures
Joint and muscle diseases
A common cause of hip pain is osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Degenerative pathology in the absence of medical intervention persistently progresses.
As the hyaline cartilage is destroyed and the bone surfaces are erased, the pain increases, even at rest. They are accompanied by crunching and clicking in the joint, its swelling and stiffness of movements. After some time, the intensity of pain decreases again, but this does not indicate recovery, because the joint gap fuses, and there is a risk of getting ankylosis - complete immobilization of the hip joint. This will indicate that a complete hip replacement is needed.
Discomfort when moving and at rest makes it clear about the development of the following acute and chronic pathologies:
● Synovitis is an inflammatory process that occurs in the synovial SAC, spreading to the ligaments and tendons. Affects the hip joint.
● Arthritis is an inflammatory process in the hip joint cavity. With exacerbations, it provokes severe pain in the front and back of the thigh, with a return to the knee or ankle.
These conditions cause permanent damage to the joint, so the only way to preserve the ability to move is to hip replacement.
A complete joint replacement is a procedure in which the damaged femur is removed or replaced with metal, ceramic, or plastic components.
Hip surface replacement - unlike a complete hip replacement, it does not require removing the femoral head and replacing it with a metal or ceramic ball. Instead, the damaged femoral head is given a different shape and supported by a metal coating that allows the head not to fall out of the acetabulum.
Arthroscopy is an operation that involves inserting light frames and narrow instruments through small incisions in the skin covering the joints. It is used to correct defects in the knee joints, and is also used to treat diseases of the hip, such as a rupture of the femoral muscle.
Osteotomy is an operation that removes damaged parts of the hip and gives the joint a new shape, correcting the deformity and improving alignment and function.

Orthopedic devices and physical therapy
Treatment for diseases of the hip joint includes the use of orthopedic products. They are often used after injuries, when full or partial immobilization is needed for a certain time. For fractures, a rigid fixation orthosis is used, which, unlike gypsum, does not cause irritation and allergies.
During rehabilitation after an injury, walkers, canes, and crutches are used for support. It is very important to wear orthopedic shoes during treatment and for prevention.
