Hip Joint Preservation

Anatomy of the Hip JointOne of the most important joints in the human body, the hip supports body weight and plays a critical role in retaining balance. Connecting the thigh bone to the pelvis, the ball-and-socket construction of the hip joint provides significant strength and flexibility and allows for the wide range of motion required in daily activities.

Chronic hip pain can make even the simplest activities difficult and painful. At the Joint Preservation Center of Towson Orthopaedic Associates, we work closely with each patient to create a personalized treatment plan to relieve pain, return range of motion, and prevent future joint deterioration.

Common Hip Conditions

Hip Impingement

Groin pain is a common symptom of hip impingementHip impingement, or Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI), is a condition involving overgrowth on the bones that form the hip joint. These “bone spurs” cause friction during movement which, over time, can damage the joint causing pain and immobility. Common symptoms of hip impingement include pain and stiffness–often in the groin area. Sharp pain may occur when turning, twisting, or squatting. If left untreated, FAI can cause significant damage to the hip which will worsen over time. If pain persists despite rest, be sure to contact your physician to discuss treatment options.
