Inflammation of the cushion (bursa) between the muscle and the hip bone can cause bursitis. Greater trochanteric bursitis is very common. The main symptom of hip bursitis is pain at the point of the hip. This can be seen in contact sports, such as football and ice hockey.
Overuse or tears of the muscle fibers around the hip joint can result in hip strain. Strains may be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the injury. Adductor muscle strain is the most common cause of groin strain. This condition can be seen in all sports but is more frequently seen in soccer and hockey.
The snapping sensation about the hip results from the movement of a muscle or tendon (the tough, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone) over hip's bony structure. Snapping hip is usually painless but can be annoying. Young athletes and dancers frequently experience snapping hip.
Hamstring injuries are the most common muscle injury in thigh. A "pulled" hamstring is a strain or tear in the muscles or tendons. This injury typically occur during accelerating-deceleration and high-speed running activities, such as basketball, football, and track and field. The best way to prevent hamstring injuries are to maintain flexibility and strength of the hamstring muscles
Hip Labral Tear
The hip labrum functions as a bumper around the hip socket. Injury or repetitive movement of the hip can cause damage or tearing of the labrum. A hip labral tear often results in pain deep in the groin and/or a "catching" sentation in the hip. Labral tears that do not improve with rest, physical therapy and antiinflammatory medications can be treated with hip arthroscopic surgery.
Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI)
Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) is a condition in which the bony structure of the hip joint impinges (or contacts) itself during certain motions of the hip. This repetitive impingement can lead to hip labral tears over time. This bony structure can be corrected with hip arthroscopic surgery to prevent impingement from occurring.
