Hip Pain Now More Common among Younger Persons

Chronic hip pain can be excruciating, debilitating, and can severely impair a person’s ability to perform routine tasks or go to work. A new study finds that such disabling hip pain is now no longer a condition that affects the elderly or the middle-aged, and is now increasingly found among young persons.

Experts have found growing incidence of hip pain among young persons who lead active lives. According to a study that was conducted recently by researchers at the Ohio State University, there has been an increase in the number of persons who suffer from femoral acetabular impingement. This is a condition that usually occurs when the ball of the femur does not align perfectly with the socket.

This condition has become much more common over the past decade, and many patients who now come to doctors complaining of chronic pain as a result of this condition are in their 20s and 30s. According to the experts, just about anyone could be at risk of such pain, but typically people who suffer from such pain tend to be those who were very actively involved in sports before or around puberty. That is because the hip growth plate fuses during those crucial endorsement years, and when a person indulges very heavily in strenuous sports during these years, it can cause an abnormal fusion of the hip plate. Over time, the person could develop hip impingement.

This is a serious condition, and if left untreated, can actually lead to long-term arthritis. The pain can become so severe that the only treatment option available is a hip replacement.

Identification of the condition in its earliest stages is key in containing the damage.
