Small sacks of fluid between the tendons and bones in your hip prevent friction during movement. Hip Bursitis occurs when these sacks of fluid become inflamed. This inflammation can be caused in a number of ways, both with injury and repetitive use. Athletes that preform a large amount of running can aggravate this area easily. It can also become inflamed with a fall or direct impact to to the hip. Symptoms of hip bursitis include pain on the outside of the hip and/or the outside of the thigh. This pain will become worse with any strenuous use or if the hip area is pressed on.
Hip dysplasia is a misalignment or deformation in the hip joint. It can be passed through family as a genetic condition, or acquired, often as a small child, from the use of restrictive seats or positions. Symptoms of hip dysplasia can include pain in the hip and limping from the pain, and in some cases an audible popping or clicking can exist.
