Soft tissue injuries are relatively common and affect nearly everyone at some point in life, whether active or relatively inactive. These injuries can vary in severity and affect almost all parts of the body, including the hips. Hip pain that seems to be stemming from the hip joint may result from soft tissue injury. This type of injury can result from muscle strain or general overuse, stress, or working in cold environmental conditions.

Symptoms of Soft Tissue Hip Pain

Soft tissue damage in the hips can affect muscles and connective tissue, like ligaments and tendons. Symptoms of mild tissue injury in the hips may include pain or tenderness, bruising, or swelling in the affected area. You may also experience weakness or limited range of motion in your hips in addition to these symptoms. Hip Pain can be mild or debilitating. If pain is chronic or severe, it should be examined by a healthcare provider.

Diagnosis of Soft Tissue Hip Pain

Your healthcare provider may physically examine your muscles to feel tightness or trigger points to diagnose this condition. Additionally, an X-ray may be performed to rule out other causes of pain. Your provider will ask you questions about your symptoms, such as when they began, what types of activities cause symptoms to worsen, and how often you are experiencing discomfort. He or she may also examine your gait to assess whether muscle imbalances are visible as you walk.

Treatment Options for Soft Tissue Hip Pain

If your healthcare provider determines that your hip injury is mild to moderate in nature, healing will require rest, ice, compression, and elevation (R.I.C.E.) of the affected area. Immobilizing the leg associated with the affected hip will also help your injury heal faster. In some cases, physical therapy may be helpful or necessary.

If your hip injury is severe and involves complete tearing of muscle or tendon, a non-invasive surgery will likely be required to treat the injury. To help you rehabilitate, your orthopedic surgeon will need you to complete physical therapy post-surgery. It is essential to keep in mind that once a muscle is injured, it is more prone to injury in the future. You will need to treat it carefully to avoid recurring injuries.
