5 Common Causes of Hip Pain

Hip pain is a common complaint because it is in an area which can affect everything you do. Hip pain can manifest itself on the outside of your hip, your groin, upper thigh, or outer buttock. So to begin to understand why you're experiencing this pain and how to reduce it, you first need to understand what causes it.

The 5 Common Causes of Hip Pain

1. Tendinitis or Bursitis

Tendons surrounding the hip connect the muscles to the joint. If you participate in sports or other strenuous activities, these tendons can become inflamed very easily. Tendinitis causes tenderness and pain just outside the joint. More specifically, tendinitis is caused by repetition of a particular activity over time.

Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles in the hip joint. If you're experiencing hip bursitis you'll feel achy and stiff. And it will hurt when you touch or press on it. Your hip pain may be from one of these two conditions, or it may be caused by something else listed below.


2. Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of chronic hip pain in women. This type of arthritis is when the ball and socket joint of your hip experiences wear-and-tear as you age. Osteoarthritis pain is mostly felt in the front of your thigh or in your groin. It's cause is swelling and inflammation in the joint. Other types of arthritis that are capable of causing hip pain are as follows.

  • Rheumatoid - Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic progressive disease that causes inflammation in the joints. This condition often affects smaller joints like the hands and wrists before it moves on to larger joints like the hips and knees. With RA hip pain, you'll experience discomfort and stiffness in your groin and thigh.
  • Psoriatic - Psoriatic arthritis is a joint inflammation condition that affects people with the skin condition psoriasis. There are five different types of psoriatic arthritis based on location and how it affects the body. Hip pain can be caused by Symmetric Psoriatic Arthritis, Asymmetric Psoriatic Arthritis, or Spondylitis. Hip pain from these types of arthritis will exhibit itself as stiffness, inflammation, discomfort, swelling, and tenderness in the joint.
  • Septic - Septic arthritis is caused by bacteria entering the body through the blood stream from another area of the body. The foreign bacteria attack enter the bloodstream and attack the joints causing inflammation and pain. Septic arthritis tends to affect one large joint of the body, such as a hip or knee.

3. Hernia

Frontal hip pain in women is sometimes from femoral and inguinal hernias in the groin; these are also known as sports hernias. A sports hernia is a strain or tear of any soft tissue in the lower abdomen or groin area. This type of pain happens when sustaining a sports injury and usually goes away with rest. However it can return when sports or other exercise starts again.

4. Hip fractures

Hip fractures become more common as you age and are more prominent in women. If you have osteoporosis, you are at a higher risk for hip fractures. This is due to the decreased bone density present. If you have a hip fracture you will experience pain when you straighten, lift, or stand on your leg. Additionally, the toes on your injured side will appear to turn out. We recommend seeing your doctor for x-rays and an appropriate diagnosis if you suspect that you have a hip fracture.

5. Pinched nerves

A pinched nerve is when too much pressure is applied to a nerve by surrounding tissues like bones, muscles, cartilage, or tendons. The pressure interrupts the nerve's functions which results in pain, tingling, weakness, or numbness. Sciatica is a type of pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve. This nerve branches from your lower back, through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. This is one type of nerve pain that can may cause issues in the hip. Other pinched nerves causes include: meralgia paresthetica, herniated disk, and sacroiliitis.

Hip pain can be inconvenient, but it doesn't have to be a roadblock in your daily life. Having the strength and comfort to complete your normal routine, as well as enjoy fun activities is a fundamental part of your life. If hip pain and discomfort persists, you may want to think about adding a natural daily joint supplement to your diet.  Joint supplements may help increase joint mobility, reduce inflammation, support cartilage repair, decrease stiffness, and stimulate lubricating fluids in the joint.* These advantages may greatly reduce pain levels in your hip.*
