Anatomy of the Hip

hip joint pain, hip surgeon in Kenya, hip treatment in Nairobi, Kenya, Nairobi Spine Orthopaedic Surgeon in Kenya

It is one of the body’s largest joints. It is a “ball-and-socket” joint. The socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone. The ball is the femoral head, which is the upper end of the femur (thighbone).

The bone surfaces of the ball and socket are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth, slippery substance that protects and cushions the bones and enables them to move easily.

The surface of the joint is covered by a thin lining called the synovium. In a healthy joint, the synovium produces a small amount of fluid that lubricates the cartilage and aids in movement.

What causes hip pain?

Pain may arise from structures that are within the joint or from structures surrounding the hip. It can occur when any problems occur to the muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, or soft tissues that make up the joint.

Pain can be referred from other structures outside the joint, meaning that while the hip hurts, the problem may potentially originate elsewhere. Numerous conditions can cause pain of the region. These include arthritis, trochanteric bursitis,  impingement, hip fractures, sprains and strains.

When should I seek medical care for hip pain?

  • If the pain begins to limit daily activities, the hip’s range of motion, or causes limping and does not respond to rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain medications, it is reasonable to seek help.

  • If there is loss of bowel or bladder function, this may signal that the pain is coming from the back, medical care should be accessed urgently.

  • Limping is not normal in infants and children. If the pain and limp are associated with a fever, emergency care should be accessed because of the risk for having a joint space infection.
