Hip pain can be caused by many different problems, including diseases and conditions in other parts of your body.
Typically, hip pain occurs on the inside of the hip or in the groin area. Hip pain that occurs on the outside of your hip, outer buttock, or upper thigh, is typically caused by issues with ligaments, muscles, tendons, or other soft tissues that are around your hip joint.
Some of the problems that can cause hip pain are:
- Arthritis (most common cause)
- Hip fractures
- Pinched nerves
Sometimes, a cancerous growth can also be a cause of hip pain. Come into Gardner Orthopedics to quickly and accurately find the cause of your hip pain.
