Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. Hip pain is often ill-defined, as many patients describe hip pain when they are referring to pain associated with different regions of the lower back, pelvis and hip itself. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.
Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.
The first and foremost thing that a patient suffering from hip pain should do is contact a physician skilled in determining the underlying cause.
