Your hip consists of a ball-and-socket joint that allows you to do things like walk, run, and jump. However, this mobility also makes your hips susceptible to pain and injury. Some of the most common hip issues are:
• Arthritis: This condition occurs when the cartilage that cushions your hip joint wears down over time.
• Bursitis: Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursae, which are small sacs of fluid that help reduce friction between bones, muscles, and tendons. This can be caused by overuse or repetitive motions.
• Labral tear: The labrum is a piece of cartilage that helps to stabilize your hip joint. A tear in this cartilage can cause pain and instability in your hip.
• Snapping hip syndrome: This causes a snapping or popping sensation in your hip, which can be due to a tendon or muscle moving over a bony surface.
