Causes and treatment for the Pain in your Hip.
The lower back and hip are made up of some complex structures and components, and is closely linked to your lower back and pelvis, so naturally there are many possible causes of hip pain.
Depending on where the pain is located, we can get an indication as to what may be causing it. If your pain is on the inside of your hip or groin, then the cause may be from the hip joint itself, while pain on the outside area of the hip, buttocks and upper thigh may to due to the muscles, and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.
It is also worth noting that your pain may be coming from the hip itself OR it may be coming from your lower back and pelvis and even your knees.mApproximately half of the hip-pain the cases I see would have a lower back component, and we also have to treat this area to help provide long term hip pain relief.
The good news is that I don’t look to pain killers and anti-inflammatories when I think of relieving hip pain. In most cases, it can be treated effectively with physiotherapy and home exercises programs.
