Hip Pain: Causes and Treatment

The hip joint is the body’s largest joint that can withstand repeated motion and a fair amount of wear and tear. Despite its durability, the hip joint isn’t indestructible. With age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused. Bones in the hip can break during a fall or other injury. Any of these conditions can lead to hip pain. You can hold ice to the area to relieve the pain. Try to rest the affected joint as much as possible until you feel better. The over-the-counter pain medication can be another way to help the pain. Call us (704) 503-9338
