Hip pain balancing on one leg

Hip pain when balancing on one leg
 can be due to the increased compression through the joint and weight transference. Balancing on one leg takes greater proprioception control and therefore any weaknesses, stiffness or swelling can create the hip pain.

Also due to the greater hip joint compression and altered dynamics and hip joint injury could cause the pain when on one leg. Injuries with this symptom are listed below:
  • Synovitis of the Hip

    Synovitis offen occurs in sports people alongside another hip joint injury. Treating the original cause or co-existing condition is key to recovering from hip synovitis. Symptoms include difficulty walking and night pain, which sometimes radiates further down the leg. This condition can also affect young children, which may be linked to the presence of a virus.

  • Osteoarthritis in the Hip

    Osteoarthritis - Hip

    Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition resulting from wear and tear in the hip. The cartilage that covers the hip joint facilitates movement, so when this degenerates, mobility reduces while pain and stiffness increases. It is common in older people over the age of 50, especially women. Although there is no cure, there several things you can do to ease the pain and help slow down degeneration.

  • Hip Bursitis

    Hip Bursitis

    Hip bursitis, also known as Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of a bursa or small sack of fluid between the tendon and bone. A bursa prevents friction and helps movement in the joint so when it becomes inflamed, it causes hip pain. Most cases of hip bursitis are caused from overuse and poor biomechanics, although a direct impact like a fall could also cause it. Read more on the causes, symptoms and treatment of this condition.

  • Hip Pain

    Hip pain or hip joint pain often develops gradually and can be from a number of causes. Labral tears and Osteoarthritis are more common, especially in older athletes who have been highly active in their 20's and 30's. Hip pain in children is often diagnosed as Perthe's disease. Here we list the causes of hip pain.
