What Causes Femoral Head Pain?

Feb. 06, 2021

The cause of femoral head pain may be caused by negligence in daily life, such as if it is usually bumped accidentally or if there is inflammation in the joint area of the femoral head. Therefore, when a patient has pain in the femoral head, it is important to accurately determine the cause of the pain and then treat the femoral head pain according to the cause.

Pain is usually caused by a hip joint lesion. The hip joint is composed of the femoral neck, femoral head and acetabulum, once the femoral head is diseased, it is bound to involve the hip joint lesion, and the associated lesions around the hip joint are very common in the process of femoral head necrosis, for example, the process of femoral head ischemic necrosis can cause synovitis synovial extension of the hip joint, and even osteoarthritis of the hip joint, due to the increased pressure in the joint cavity and synovial inflammation these factors are These factors can cause joint pain in patients. Of course, the pain of osteonecrosis of the femoral head does not stop there.

Femoral Head

What causes femoral head pain?

Increased intraosseous pressure

In patients with femoral head necrosis, there is also an increase in pressure in the area of the femoral head necrosis, because during the development of ischemic necrosis of the femoral head, the intraosseous pressure in the femoral head is very high, and the increase in intraosseous pressure can cause continuous pain in people. Therefore, increased intraosseous pressure is the cause of pain in ischemic necrosis of the femoral head.

Ligament and muscle contracture

Contracture of the ligaments and muscles around the hip joint causes pain. Femoral head necrosis is an orthopedic disease with a long incubation period, slow development and a long course. During this period, the muscles and ligaments around the hip joint may contract with the development of the femoral head lesion.

Traumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head

Traumatic osteoarthritis of the hip joint causes pain. If femoral head necrosis is not treated effectively in the early stage or treated improperly, the ischemic necrosis of the femoral head will develop to a certain extent, and later the femoral head will collapse or even shatter, and then traumatic arthritis of the hip joint will definitely appear. Due to the degeneration and unsmoothness of the cartilage of the hip joint, the femoral head will cause friction in the hip joint when moving, so that the friction in the hip joint will be expressed as pain in the knee joint on the same side through the conduction of the closed pore nerve.


When the patient has femoral head pain, he should not walk for a long time, and he should reduce the range of activities and avoid strain. Therefore, it is important to take more rest, keep the affected area warm, and actively take treatment to relieve the pain. However, necrosis of the femoral head can aggravate the condition.

Patients with femoral head pain should also pay more attention in life, pay attention to moderate amount of labor, keep the mood relaxed, do not stand for a long time to avoid the femoral head fatigue and cause pain. Do not squat for a long time, avoid overexertion, and pay attention to the combination of work and rest.
