Can hip problems cause leg and foot pain?

Asked 2 years ago

Hello, I have had hip pains for a while now, and recently my leg started getting achy and my feet. What are the odds that these are connected to the issue with my hips?

Hip pain can affect your lower back, as well as your leg and foot. Leg discomfort can be caused by pelvic bone fractures or other hip joint issues caused by trauma, misuse, or degeneration. Sciatic neuropathy, or injury to the sciatic nerve in the pelvis (hip), can also produce foot discomfort and weakness along the top of your foot. Poor posture, incorrect biomechanics, excessive sitting, and/or stress all contribute to dysfunctional hip flexor muscles in a huge portion of the population. Not only the lower back, but also the knees, ankles, and feet may experience pain as a result of this.

The hip, leg, and foot, all share a story - they form part of the kinematic chain that ensures mobility. When you suffer hip pain, the body compensates for the pain, leading to gait difficulties. Over time, the new posture becomes problematic to the body and can cause leg and foot pain.

Hip problems, including sciatica, hip bursitis, degenerative conditions, etc., can cause leg and foot pain over time. These conditions impact the hip joint, altering walking patterns and causing nerve compression. This leads to symptoms like sharp pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and difficulty in physical activities.

I'd recommend seeking professional diagnosis and treatment. My brother uses custom orthotics to help alleviate his hip pain, so I suggest you get some, as they can provide additional relief.
