Common Causes of Hip Pain
Hip pain can take many forms and the location of it can help indicate the underlying cause. You may experience pain in the front of your hip (hip flexors), the sides or even around your buttocks. There are many different causes for hip pain, some of which include:
Overuse or muscle strain – Putting your body through the same movements for long periods of time (repetitive motions) or performing routine activities can cause muscles in the hip to become inflamed, bruised or torn.
Inflammation – If a hip injury or illness occurs, it could trigger inflammation of the tendon, ligaments, and muscles surrounding the hip.
Trauma – A trauma injury, such as a car crash or slip and fall can cause fractures, dislocations of the hip, or sprained ligaments or muscles.
Bursitis – A fluid-filled sac called the bursa surrounds your joints. It works to reduce friction and cushion the joint. When it becomes swollen, inflamed or irritated, it can cause pain and result in bursitis.
Osteoarthritis – This condition causes progressive cartilage loss and degeneration of the joint, often the result of normal wear and tear.
Age – The natural wear and tear of the cartilage over the years.
