THE HIP IS A BALL AND SOCKET JOINT THAT ATTACHES THE LEG TO THE TORSO OF THE BODY. HIP PAIN IS A COMMON COMPLAINT THAT CAN BE CAUSED BY A WIDE VARIETY OF PROBLEMS.
Hip pain is often the result of some sort of trauma, although any source of inflammation may create pain in the area. Inflammation will cause the hip joint to fill with fluid or blood, stretching the hip capsule lining and resulting in pain.
Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems, depending on the location of the pain. Pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments and tendons that surround your hip joint. While it can sometimes be caused by conditions in other areas of your body, such as your lower back or your knees.
