Pain in hip and groin

The theme of this text will be related to the problems with pain in groin and hip. The problem is usually the same, since the pain in hip is usually felt as pain in the groin but there are several other problems which are felt in similar way. Those problems includes upper thigh pain, abdominal side pain and pain in the buttocks, and they can be produced because of several reasons. The one general cause is not yet determined but as we have said there are several possible ones. Sprinters usually produce this condition because of the tendinitis, or strain of the adductor, a muscle which functions as a leg mover. When the muscle calcifies if the problem is connected with myositis ossificans. This condition is very rare, but it can sometimes happen to football players after a muscle trauma.

The pain in the groin can be provoked because of two reasons, iliopsoas bursitis or strain. When this problem is present, hip flexing produces pain which is felt at the front area of the groin and hip. The culprit responsible for cartilage inflammation is undiscovered but this problem is connected with a problem called osteitis pubis. Problems such as groin disruption or sport hernia are possible. The pain in hip and groin can be produced because of stress fracture of the pubic ramus or femoral neck. Damage of the tendon which produces condition called avulsion fracture is common with young athletes. If problems such as ilioinguinal nerve entrapment, genitofemoral nerve entrapment, obturator nerve entrapment and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve entrapment are experienced along with nerve entrapment problems as they cause the pain in question.

We will list a number of reasons for groin and hip pain in children younger than 10 years old. Those are toxic synovitis, septic joint, slipped femoral epiphysis and legg-calve-perthes disease. Osteoarthritis is a condition which is connected with a cartilage dilapidation which can destroy the bone, and this problem is widespread among older people. Cancer, gout, osteoid osteoma (benign tumor) and hip fracture can also produce this problem. Other causes for this pain are iliotibial band syndrome (produces pain in the hip and thigh outer area), iliopsoas bursitis (inflammation of the bursitis) and piriformis syndrome (inflammation of the piriformis muscles). Some neurological problems can also produce this pain and some of them are meralgia paresthetica, problems with lumbar disk, coccydynia or spinal stenosis. As we have stated at the beginning of the text, there are numerous causes for the pain in the groin and hip area, and some of them are diverticulitis, menstrual problems, varicocele, testicular cancer, endometriosis, Inguinal hernia are just some of them.
