Hip Pain and Thigh Pain

About Hip Pain and Thigh Pain

Hip pain is typically felt in three places, in the groin, outer hip, and/or buttock. Depending on where the pain is focused corresponds to the dysfunction around that area. The hip joint is incredible as it moves through a large range of motion, and is stable enough to support the weight of the body.

Hip pain can occur due to limited motion of the hip causing abnormal stress on different muscles, tendons, or ligaments in the area. Pain due to injury from the hip is typically felt in the area around the hip but with more severe irritation, radiating pain can even be felt into the thigh or knee.

Having mobile hip joints with strong muscular support is key to a healthy back. When the hips do not move as they should, the normal forces of walking, bending and squatting are transferred to the spine instead of the hips.
