Hip pain is a common complaint that can be caused by a wide variety of problems. The precise location of your hip pain can provide valuable clues about the underlying cause.

Problems within the hip joint itself tend to result in pain on the inside of your hip or your groin. Hip pain on the outside of your hip, upper thigh or outer buttock is usually caused by problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround your hip joint.

Hip pain can sometimes be caused by diseases and conditions in other areas of your body, such as your lower back. This type of pain is called referred pain.

Sacroiliac Joint Pain

What is SI joint pain?

Inflammation of one or both SI joints is called sacroiliac joint dysfunction, or sacroiliitis. With this condition you may experience a sharp, stabbing pain that radiates from your hips and pelvis, up to the lower back, and down to the thighs. Sometimes it may feel numb or tingly, or as if your legs are about to buckle.

What causes SI joint pain?

Causes of SI joint pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Injury
  • Pregnancy
  • Gout


What is arthritis in the hip?

Osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis is a degenerative disease in which the surface cartilage of a joint wears away eventually leaving just bone beneath it exposed. Healthy cartilage acts as padding in the joint and under normal conditions is perfectly smooth. When the cartilage deteriorates, it becomes rough and causes the pain people associate with having arthritis.
  • Discomfort and stiffness in your groin, buttock, or thigh upon waking.
  • Pain flares up when you’re active, and calms when you rest.
  • Loss of flexibility and less range of motion in the hip.
  • You may feel a grating sensation when you move.
  • Swelling stiffness and warmth in the hip area.

What causes arthritis pain in the hip?

  • A family history of the disease increases the likelihood of developing osteoarthritis.
  • Osteoarthritis usually goes hand-in-hand with aging, so older people and the elderly are more likely to have symptoms.
  • Very overweight and obese people are more likely to have osteoarthritis.
  • An injury can lead to developing osteoarthritis, even years after it occurs.


What is bursitis?

Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae — that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed.

What causes bursitis?

The most common causes of bursitis are repetitive motions or positions that put pressure on the bursae around a joint. Other causes include injury or trauma to the affected area, inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and infection.
