The hip is a ball-and-socket joint, which allows for fluid movement of our bodies. Whenever we use the hip, a cushion of cartilage minimizes friction as the hip bone moves in the socket. With age, the cartilage can wear down or get damaged. Muscles and tendons in the hip can tear or become inflamed and injuries from falling or other accidents can cause break or fracture the hip. Hip pain is often felt in the groin or over the hip joint, but can be experienced differently by individuals.
Not all hip and pelvis pain is caused directly by issues of the hip joint or tissues surrounding it. In women, a condition known as endometriosis can occur when endometrial tissue appears on the outside of the uterus, causing pain in the pelvis.
