The hip joint, the body’s largest ball-and-socket joint, connects the thigh bone (femur) to the pelvis.

As the hip joint supports your full body weight when walking or running, the femur sits very deeply in the socket, supported by a soft cushion of cartilage and strong ligaments to aid in stabilization.

Because this joint is used so frequently through daily activity, hip pain and stiffness along with popping noises can be a common complaint, especially for adults older than 50.

If your pain is in the hip joint, you usually will feel it most acutely on the inside of your hip or in your groin area.

It may be time to schedule an appointment with a doctor if you don’t see any improvement in your hip pain within a week or two of treating it with rest, ice,

compression and anti-inflammatory over-the-counter medications.

Join us for a free live online seminar hosted by orthopedic specialists with Venice Regional Bayfront Health.

We will discuss the causes and the latest advances for joint pain treatment.

Our orthopedic specialist hosting the session will be happy to answer questions related to joint pain in hip, knee and shoulder during Q&A at this seminar.

Are you ready for a life change? Take the first step, and attend a free live online seminar with one of our board-certified surgeons.

Please register to reserve your spot. You will receive an email with the information to log in to view the presentation.

A reminder email will be sent to you one week prior to the session.

We look forward to sharing more about our orthopedic program.
