Hip pain is not uncommon amongst Americans. It is likely to be caused by a variety of problems. Over 7% of all Americans report that they experience hip pain in their bodies. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about what the underlying cause is.
Depending on the condition causing your hip pain, you may feel the discomfort in your:
- Inside of the hip joint
- Outside of the hip joint
Hip pain on your upper thigh, outer buttocks or outside of your hip is typically caused by problems with ligaments, muscles, tendons and other soft issues that surround your hip. Problems within the hip joint itself often result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain can also derive from a disease or condition in other areas of your body, such as your lower back or your knees. This type of pain is called referred pain.
