Hip pain can be caused by a variety of factors throughout our lives.  Here is the list of the most common causes of hip pain and what you may experience.


Hip osteoarthritis is  the most common type of arthritis and is the most common cause of hip  pain in older adults. Osteoarthritis occurs when there is a breakdown of  the protective cartilage on the ends of bones.


Bursitis is inflammation of any of the  bursas of the hip joint. Bursas are fluid-filled sacs found in areas of  high friction in the body. Common areas to have bursas are between  tendons and bones.


A common area to have tendonitis of the  hip is in the hip flexor. Several muscles help to flex your hip, and any  one of these may be involved, but your iliopsoas muscle is typically  the culprit.

Traumatic Injury

Traumatic events  can potentially cause many different injuries. Injuries to the hip are  quite common in traumatic circumstances. Whether this event is a fall, a  sports injury, or a car accident, there is the risk of sustaining a hip  fracture, hip dislocation, or a labral tear.

Avascular Necrosis

Avascular necrosis occurs when the head of the femur is no longer receiving a healthy  amount of blood. As the blood flow is cut off, the femur’s head, which  is made of bone, actually starts to die.
