Hip & Knee Q & A

What are hip conditions?

Hip conditions are injuries, diseases, or age-related wear that affects your hip joints, which connect your legs to your torso. Tendons, ligaments, bones, muscles, and cartilage make up your hip joint and can cause discomfort when these tissues become damaged. 

See the Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County team at the first sign of severe or long-lasting hip pain.

What are the symptoms of hip conditions?

Hip conditions may appear as:

  • Sharp pain
  • Radiating discomfort

If your symptoms don’t resolve on their own with rest and home care, or if the discomfort is extreme, see the Orthopedic Center of Palm Beach County specialists for an evaluation.

How does my specialist diagnose hip conditions?

To find the cause of hip pain and treat it effectively, an orthopedic specialist asks about your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, medications, and more. They examine your hip joint during a physical exam and may order blood tests, X-rays, an MRI, or other imaging procedures to obtain images of the inside of your hip joint. They then customize a superior hip pain treatment.
