Hip Doctor

Our hip doctors at Litchfield Hills Orthopedic Associates, located in Torrington and Bristol, are recognized experts in the field and have the specialized knowledge and training to assess, diagnose, and treat a full range of hip injuries and conditions. 

Supporting us while we stand, walk, or run, the hip joints' most important function is to provide us with balance. When hip pain strikes, it can be the result of a traumatic injury, our genetic disposition, or the natural aging process and general wear and tear. There are several common hip injuries and conditions that cause hip pain, including:

  • Arthritis, or pain or stiffness in the hip
  • Bursitis, or painful inflammation within or around the hip joint
  • Dislocation, or the slip of one of the bones
  • Fractures, or a break in the bone
  • Hip impingement, or abnormal or wearing contact between the ball-and-socket hip joint
  • Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease from wear and tear
  • Rheumatoid arthritis, or immune system disorder
  • Sports-related injuries and conditions
  • Sprains or strains, or when muscle fibers within the hip are abnormally stretched or torn
  • Tendon and ligament injuries
  • Tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis), or inflammation of the tendons
  • Trauma, or an unexpected injury to the hip
