Hip Pain

Hip pain can be caused by a number of issues such as overuse, arthritis, injury or fracture.  Hip pain be felt in areas such as:

  • Thigh
  • Inside of the hip joint
  • Groin
  • Outside of the hip joint
  • Buttocks

Your treatment will vary by cause. Some common causes of hip pain include: 

Arthritis
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are among the most common causes of hip pain, especially in older adults. Arthritis leads to inflammation. People who suffer from arthritis also may feel stiffness and have reduced range of motion in the hip.

Hip fractures
Fractures of the hip are a common problem in elderly people. With age, the bones can become weak and brittle. Weakened bones are more likely to fracture as a result of a fall.

Bursitis
Inflammation of small, fluid filled sacs (called bursae) that protect muscles and tendons is usually due to repetitive activities that overwork or irritate the hip joint.

Tendinitis
Tendons are the thick bands of tissue that attach bones to muscles. Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of the tendons. It's usually caused by repetitive stress from overuse.

Muscle or tendon strain
Repeated activities can put strain on the muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the hips. When these structures become inflamed from overuse, they can cause pain and prevent the hip from functioning normally.
