TRANSIENT OSTEOPOROSIS OF THE HIP
This condition is a sudden onset of pain in the hip that usually subsides within six months to a year. This condition is not associated with degenerative osteoporosis, and there is usually no long-term disability.
The exact cause of transient osteoporosis is unknown. The condition usually occurs in women in their third trimester of pregnancy and middle-aged men.
The most common symptom of transient osteoporosis is the sudden onset of pain in the hip. Pain may also be felt in the groin, buttock, or thigh. Pain may increase for a short period, but usually lessens over time.
Treatment options include rest, anti-inflammatory medications, use of a brace, crutches or a walker, and physical therapy. Surgery is rarely needed for transient osteoporosis.
