Hip Pain & Disorders

Hip pain & disorders are common health issues caused by a variety of problems, including sciatica. The exact location of a person’s painful hip symptoms can provide more information about the underlying cause. The hip joint on its own tends to result in pain on the inside of your hip or groin area. Pain on the outside, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by ailments/problems with the muscles, ligaments, tendons and soft tissues surrounding the hip joint. Hip pain can also be caused by health issues in other regions of the human body, such as the lower back. It’s important to first identify the source of the painful symptoms. The most important distinguishing factor is to find out if the hip is the cause of pain and disorders. When hip pain and disorders come from muscles, tendons, or ligament injuries, it typically comes from overuse or repetitive strain injury (RSI). This comes from overusing the hip muscles in the human body i.e. iliopsoas tendinitis. This can come from tendon and ligament problems, which generally are involved in snapping hip syndrome. It can come from the joint, characteristic of hip osteoarthritis. Each of these painful symptoms presents themselves in slightly different ways, which is then the most important part of diagnosing what the cause is, including sciatica.
