The hips can suffer injury in a variety of ways. Osteoarthritis is a common condition among older adults and can cause pain and disability in the hips. Developmental dysplasia (dislocation) of the hip, impingement, hip bursitis, pelvic fractures, osteoporosis (thinning bones) and strains can cause major hip pain and, in some cases, require total hip replacement or minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery for hip replacement. Like the shoulder, the hip is a ball and socket-type joint that is more susceptible to hip dislocation.
