WHAT IS CAUSING MY HIP PAIN?

Hip pain can be caused by a direct injury or from other underlying injuries such as a hernia. Many individuals assume hip pain is a result of old age, but it can and does affect people of all ages, especially athletes and dancers. Even though the hip is an extremely durable joint, the cartilage and tendons can wear down and the muscles can tire. Not to mention the hip bone itself, like any other bone, can break. It may be time to come see us if you are experiencing any of the following with your hip pain:

• Limited range of motion

• Interior and exterior joint pain

• Pain in the buttocks, groin or thigh

• Pain while walking or sitting for long periods of time

• Pain that causes limping
