Hip pain may be found anywhere around the hip area; from the outside of the hip to the groin, and the outer buttock to the upper thigh. Hip pain is known to cause uncomforting pain on individuals, making it very difficult to walk and move freely. There are many symptoms of hip pain that include:
Loss of motion of the hip
Decreased range of motion
The most common causes of hip pain are tendinopathy, tendon tears, bursitis, tendonitis, labral tears, and osteoarthritis. There are also known factors that may increase the risk of hip pain, such as obesity, age (common among those under 15 years and those over the age of 45), being female, and having experienced prior hip trauma.
