Hip pain can arise from irritation to any of the following structures – the femoral head, acetabulum, labrum, bursa, articular cartilage or surrounding musculature and tendons.
A fall or accident resulting in twisting or trauma to the hip (eg. motor vehicle accident) can result in pain. Hip pain can also occur from gradual wear and tear or repetitive overuse of the hip. Pain can also be referred from other structures outside the hip joint such as the lower back. Inflammation of the sciatic nerve can also cause hip pain, particularly if the L1 or L2 nerve roots are involved.
