Hip socket fracture

Hip conditions may manifest as Knee pain

Have you developed knee pain recently? Has your orthopaedic surgeon looked at your knee, done all the tests and can’t find anything wrong in your knee?
It is possible that the actual problem might lie in your hip and that he is missing out on something. The reason is that the nerves which supply the hip joint also supply the knee. So when there is some early disease in the hip, it may manifest in the knee.

Recently I saw a patient with this type of presentation. Although an X ray showed nothing, I have sent him for an MRI scan to rule out Avascular necrosis. This is a common moide of presentation of this condition.

We were taught in our M.CH and MS Orthopedic courses, that one should examine the hip and spine in patients with knee pain.
