Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The hip joint can withstand repeated motion and a good deal of wear and tear. However, the hip joint isn't indestructible. Unfortunately, with age and use, the cartilage can wear down or become damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can get overused.
Discomfort may be caused by:
- Muscle or tendon strain
- Hip labral tear
- Hip fractures
Signs and symptoms of hip pain:
- Joint pain
- Groin pain
- Loss of motion of the hip
- Swelling over the hip
- Tenderness of the hip
- Difficulty sleeping on the hip
