Hip pain can be caused by several different problems. Pain that aches during standing, walking, or general daily activities may be due to thinning or wearing out the joint surface itself. This is commonly known as osteoarthritis.
Pain with certain movements that is sharp, catching, or has a snapping sensation may be caused by trochanteric bursitis, labral tear, impingement, or sometimes from instability of the joint itself.
Hip Joint Pain
Often confused with other types of pain around the hip, hip joint pain is often felt in the front of the hip region.
/When the pain is on the side or outside of the hip, this may be from muscles rubbing on the trochanter. This is also known as bursitis. Sometimes it feels like something is snapping in and out of place on the side of the hip.
