Hip Pain

Hip Pain

Hip pain involves any pain in or around the hip joint. You may not feel pain from your hip directly over the hip area. You may feel it in your groin or pain in your thigh or knee.

Causes:

  • Hip pain may be caused by problems in the bones or cartilage of your hip, including:
  • Hip fractures-- can cause sudden and acute hip pain. These injuries can be serious and lead to major problems.
  • Hip fractures -- more common as people get older because falls are more likely and your bones become weaker.
  • Infection in the bones or joints.
  • Osteonecrosis of the hip (necrosis from loss of blood supply to the bone).
  • Arthritis-- often felt in the front part of the thigh or groin.
  • Labral tear of the hip.

Pain in or around the hip may also be caused by problems such as:

  • Bursitis -- pain when getting up from a chair, walking, climbing stairs, and driving
  • Hamstring strain
  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Hip flexor strain
  • Hip impingement syndrome
  • Groin strain
  • Snapping hip syndrome

Sometimes, the pain you feel in the hip may reflect a problem in your back, rather than in the hip itself.
