People of all ages and fitness levels can experience hip pain related to musculoskeletal issues or general wear and tear of the joints.
Problems inside your hip joint can cause pain on the inside of your hip or groin. Pain felt on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually linked to soft tissue, muscle, tendon or ligament problems associated with your hip joint. Hip pain can sometimes be caused by referred pain from a condition in other areas such as your lower back. Having a physiotherapist assess your hip pain will identify the cause of your pain allowing for more targeted treatment options.
