Hip pain is a common symptom experienced by many people. It can range from mild discomfort to severe pain that limits the activities of daily living.
The hip is one of the most stable joints in the body, but the excessive pressure of bearing the body's weight makes it susceptible to arthritis and injury. Pain may involve bone, muscles, tendons, or bursae (small fluid-filled sacs that cushion and lubricate joints). Sports injuries, repetitive motion, traumatic accidents, and of course, arthritis are common causes of hip pain.
