Hip Pain Q & A

What is hip pain?

Hip pain includes any discomfort you feel in or around your hip joint. The type and location of your pain help pinpoint the underlying cause.

For example, if you feel pain inside your hip or groin, you may have a problem with the hip joint itself. Pain on the outside of your hip or buttocks may be signs of a problem with the muscles, ligaments, or tendons surrounding the hip.

What causes hip pain?

Hip pain may develop from an acute injury, an underlying disease that involves the joint, or from a health condition that affects other parts of your body such as your back or knees. 

Common causes of hip pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Sprains
  • Bursitis
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures
  • Sciatica
  • Hip labral tear


You can also develop acute hip pain from an overzealous workout. Though the cause of hip pain varies, if you have ongoing hip pain that fails to improve after a few days of at-home care, the team at Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado can help.

What happens during a hip pain evaluation?

When you visit Alternative Physical Medicine of Colorado for a hip pain evaluation, you can expect a comprehensive exam. The team takes a holistic and patient-centered approach to care, focusing on your whole-body health, not your pain.

They listen intently to your story and concerns and ask detailed questions about your hip pain and location. They review your medical history, usual routine, and perform a physical. 

To confirm or rule out a diagnosis to explain your hip pain, the team runs various diagnostic tests, such as blood work, X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans.
