Hip pain is a common injury our expert team of physicians sees daily. People of all ages are affected by hip pain and hip replacements. The hip does very important work for our body. At times, it is the foundation that enables us to stand, sit, or squat. It supports the weight of the body and controls the upper leg, allowing us to walk, run, and climb. The physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and orthopedic physicians and surgeons at Carle McLean County Orthopedics are experts at treating hip pain and performing hip replacements.

Hip pain can be caused by a variety of conditions, which is why it’s essential to schedule an appointment with a doctor if you’re experiencing any chronic or acute pain. Hip pain can also be related to lower back pain. Symptoms of hip pain can include an inability to bear weight on the affected leg, inability to move affected leg or hip, swelling, intense pain, or signs of infection. These are all symptoms that you should contact a doctor to get a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. Common conditions that cause hip pain include:

  • Sciatica
  • Hip bursitis
  • Hip arthritis
  • Hip joint pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hip fracture
