What Is Hip Pain?

Your hip is a ball-and-socket joint that connects your thigh bone to your pelvis. The head of your thigh bone (femur) and the socket of your pelvis are both lined in smooth cartilage that allows the joint to move easily. The rim of your hip socket is lined with fibrous tissue called the labrum and small jelly-like sacs called bursae that cushion the joint and reduce friction. Damage to any one of these structures may result in hip pain.

What Causes Hip Pain?

Arthritis Of The Hip

Arthritis is a group of more than 100 diseases that cause joint inflammation. You can develop arthritis in any joint, but this disease is most common in large, weight-bearing joints like the hip.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. This condition occurs when the cartilage that lines the bones in your hip wears down. Over time, hip arthritis can cause your bones to grind against one another when you move the joint.

Hip Labrum Tear

This injury occurs when the ring of cartilage that surrounds your hip socket (labrum) gets torn. Some hip labrum tears don’t cause any signs or symptoms. Others cause hip pain, reduced range of motion, and a locking or clicking sensation in your hip.

Hip Bursitis

Hip bursitis occurs when the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) in your hip become inflamed. This causes sharp, intense hip pain that may turn into a dull ache over time.
