What is 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.
What Causes Hip Pain?
Many different problems can cause hip pain. Abnormalities of the skin, nerves, bones, joints, and blood vessels can all result in pain. Sometimes diseases that affect other joints in the body, such as the inflammation resulting from arthritis, can be the cause of hip pain. Trauma or injury, including bone fracture, is also a cause. Pain in the hip area can also originate from painful infections or other conditions of the skin, such as shingles. Problems with the back or spine can also cause hip pain. Also, when the body is out of misalignment, a number of effects occur, including hip pain.
