I want to know if it's possible to cause a lot of soft tissue damage to a hip joint from falling on it. What tests should I get done to treat the pain?

Get a diagnosis: With persistent pain in the hip after a fall the first step is to be evaluated by a physician. An x-ray to evaluate for fracture would be a good idea. Possibly just a contusion or trochanteric bursitis. Hip pain can also be from a back injury. Not possible to diagnose without evaluation and a work up. ...Read more

Could shoe sole replacements cause hip joint pain?

Could shoe sole replacements cause hip joint pain?

Shoe Inserts and Hip: Subtle changes in shoes, insoles and orthotic devices can cause and help problems up the leg. If you simply switched an old shoe insert with a new insert, that alone probably did not cause the problem. My first guess would be that the shoes overall are beginning to break down and replacing the insoles was too late to help a developing hip problem. I would get a new shoe and test out this theory. ...Read more

I keep waking up or being woken up by severe pain in my right hip joint. Sometimes, like today it lasts all morning. And causes acute pain when I try to use my right leg.

Sorry for your pain: Try lying flat on your back either on the floor or in bed. Bring your right knee up to about 90 degrees - like you are going to pull it to your chest but not so far. Slowly and gently, rotate your right knee towards the left. If it reproduces your pain, it could in fact be coming from the ball and socket hip joint. You really need to see your doc and get an xray of the right hip. ...Read more

I had fracture pelvis near the hip joint sincr one year and till noe I have loew backache and bilateral knee joint pain what is the causes and treatme?

Pain after pelvis fx: I would suspect other injuries. You are young, and it takes a good deal of trauma to fracture a young pelvis. Proper evaluation would require xrays of the spine and pelvis at the time of injury, and likely repeat xrays now due to continued pain. You may have injured your sacrum, iliosacral ligaments, sacroiliac joints, etc. Energy that fractures the pelvis can also be transferred through knees. ...Read more
