About Hip Pain
Your hip is the joint where your thigh bone meets your pelvic bone. It is also known as a ball-and-socket joint.
The hip moves in three planes; forwards and backwards, inwards and outwards, and inward twist and outward twist. Hips can become painful due to a variety of causes.
Although it is large and weight bearing and one of the strongest and most secure joints in the body, hips can become painful due to strains, fractures and dislocations.
Conditions such as osteoarthritis, sciatica, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis can also cause hip pain. There are several treatments available for painful hips.
