Buttock Rectum | General Practice | Pain in Hips (Symptom)


Hip pain is the sensation of discomfort in or around the hip joint, where the top (head) of the thigh bone (femur) meets the socket of the hip bone.


The hip pain has a number of causes, most of which are related to degeneration, injury or inflammation of muscles, bones, joints and tendons located in the hip area. The most common causes of hip pain include arthritis, bursitis, fractures, muscle spasms and tension. Hip pain can also result from disorders causing pain radiating from the spine and back, such as sciatica and herniated disc.
