Hip pain refers to any type of discomfort that occurs in or around your hip joint. The location of your pain may help determine the underlying cause of the discomfort.
For example, pain near your groin or inside your hip may indicate a problem with the joint itself. Pain on the outside of your hip or upper thigh may be signs of a problem with the ligaments, muscles, or tendons that surround your hip.
You may develop hip pain from an injury, overuse, or an underlying disease such as arthritis. The common causes of hip pain include:
Hip pain may also occur from problems that affect other parts of the body.
Sciatica, for example, is a nerve condition that occurs from irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. Sciatica causes pain that radiates from the lower back to the hip and down the back of the leg.
Anyone with ongoing or severe hip pain benefits from rehabilitation with the physical and occupational therapists at Precision Rehab Occupational Physical & Hand Therapy.
