Hip Pain with Running

Hip pain is one of the more common symptoms we see in our patients who run.  It can be frustrating because most of the time, the only time they feel it is when they run.   Nothing they do can reproduce the pain except running.  Sometimes it will start fairly soon into the run while in other patients it can take a couple of miles for the pain to kick in.  This can be extremely frustrating as it can make a person stop running all together or effect their performance.  The key to fixing this is to uncover the problem.  The thing to remember like all pain, pain isn’t the problem, the problem is causing the pain.  So until the source is discovered, it can be difficult to get rid of.  Things like creams and pills only mask the pain.  They may make it bearable but it isn’t fixing the problem.  Below is  a list of some of the more common problems that can cause pain with running.

Muscle strain and tendonitis

IT band syndrome

Labral cartilage tears

Muscle tendon bursitis

Hip pointer

Some other causes include:

Ankle Joint dysfunction

Knee Joint dysfunction

SI joint subluxation

Lumbar spine problems

Most of the time the patient has a combination of these problems.  The trick is finding out what works so the appropriate treatment can be given.  That is why cookie cutter approaches don’t work.  It’s important to go to a doctor who is familiar with bio mechanics.  The last thing you want to do is to just take some ibuprofen for a few weeks and see if it goes away.
